Forget Goldman Sachs, former President Bill Clinton now to share his crypto expertise as the keynote speaker at Ripple conference

Since we all know that Bill Clinton's former Vice-President Al Gore invented the internet, I guess it is not too much of a stretch to believe that the former Commander-in-Chief is an expert on cryptocurrencies since Clinton has been invited to be the Keynote Speaker at an upcoming Ripple conference.

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will headline Ripple's Swell conference later this year, the cryptocurrency payments startup announced Tuesday. 
The 42nd President of the United States will both give a keynote address and participate in a question-and-answer session, Ripple said in a press release. The conference will take place in San Francisco over the first two days of October. 
Clinton "helped usher in a period of extreme growth and adoption of the internet" as president, according to the release. He also oversaw programs which helped communities and individuals gain access to the internet during his presidency. - Coindesk
Since leaving office, Bill Clinton has made tens of millions of dollars giving speeches to the likes of Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan.  And perhaps his now helping to promote Ripple is appropriate since the cryptocurrency is known as the 'Banker's Coin' and a large catalyst in the move towards digitizing the banking system.
