Arguably the most popular POTUS since JFK, the 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, will be the guest of honor at Ripple’s upcoming Swell By Ripple crypto/blockchain conference in October, where he will perform keynote speaker honors.
Despite a year tainted with disappointment, both in terms of market value and the ongoing struggle for wide scale acceptance by the banks and financial institutions of the world, the no.3 ranked cryptocurrency Ripple and its parent The Ripple Company continue to be a class act.
Ripple: The Class Act Of Cryptocurrency
Whether it be headhunting the highly capable and vastly experienced (Time Inc., MasterCard, Facebook) Kahina Van Dyke for the position of Senior Vice President, or getting none other than Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, to be Keynote Speaker in their 2nd annual Swell by Ripple conference, the message Ripple are sending is one of up-market sophistication, yet familiarity and trustworthiness.
The recruitment of Bill Clinton represents a coup which is unmatched by any other cryptocurrency.
Ripple Announce President Clinton’s Appearance At Swell 2018
The announcement on the Ripple website opens with these two key paragraphs:
“Today, we’re thrilled to announce 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton as the keynote speaker for Swell – where the world’s leaders in policy, payments and technology connect.”
“At a time when groundbreaking technology and regulation were often on a collision course, President Clinton helped usher in a period of extreme growth and adoption of the Internet, shaping what it is today. He also established programs that bridged the “digital divide” and brought new technology to underserved communities around the world.”
About Bill Clinton
Former President Bill Clinton remains an incredibly popular figure worldwide. In the US, he was one of the few leaders able to bridge the gap between the his own democrats and the rival republican party. This was due to his strong leadership, his virtual right-wing stance on certain issues such as immigration and terrorism, and most of all, his handling of the US economy, which enjoyed its best ever years during Clinton’s reign.
Clinton served two terms in office, and was Commander in Chief from 1993 until 2001. His time in office was blighted by several non-political scandals, but the fact that Clinton was open to human fallibilities seemed to make him even more popular with the American people.
Clinton was that rarity of rarities; a president who was doing a great job, even in his final term. His two terms seemed nowhere near enough, and most Americans would have loved to see remain in office.
What Is Swell?
Swell began last year with a three-day conference held in Toronto. The idea for the conference came about because many of Ripple’s clients requested they bring together powerful figures from the banking and finance sector, and get them to spend time with innovative and creative people from the world of blockchain technology. The poster advertising the first Swell event is shown above.
The event was a success, so much so that the decision was made to turn Swell into an annual event. This year’s conference will be held in San Francisco from Monday, October 1 to Tuesday, October 2. Along with guest speakers, it will feature in-depth discussions on the following subjects:
- How financial services companies can benefit from using blockchain technology in production
- How blockchain technology can boost new market opportunity in remittances, e-commerce and corporate marketplaces
- Establishing blockchain-based frameworks for regulating, improving and increasing the digital assets across Europe, Asia and the Middle East
