After his ouster as Prime Minister of Great Britain, Boris Johnson is increasingly sought after by organizers of world-class conferences. In September, the Colorado Council of Insurance Agents and Brokers invited him to give a speech. This approximately 30-minute performance earned him a check for $130,000. For the month of December, BoJo is expected by crypto enthusiasts and other business players at the International Blockchain Advances Symposium in Singapore.

Boris Johnson will talk about blockchain

According to GuardianBoris Johnson will be a keynote speaker at the International Symposium on Blockchain Advances scheduled for Singapore. On occasion he will deliver the keynote address to the audience. Far from being a newbie in blockchain and cryptocurrencies, this vice president will probably be entitled to the same salary as last September during his trip to Colorado.

In any case, this Singapore meeting on December 2 will not be short of celebrities. The former American vice president, Dick Cheney, for example, will answer it alongside the former British prime minister.

Also note the lack of details about BoJo’s speech at this symposium. However, its title gives us an insight into the main axis that stakeholders will need to consider. Comedian Dom Joly poked fun at Mr Johnson on Twitter, parodying his style, his awkwardness with eloquence and his love of Latin expressions.

Singapore, the next Asian crypto capital?

We are not unaware that Boris Johnson was hoping to return to his post as Prime Minister after the departure of Liz Truss. After withdrawing, perhaps motivated by huge checks from the crypto and financial universe, he accepted the invitation and plane tickets to Singapore.
