Lamborghinis Take Manhattan as Consensus 2018 Crypto Conference Begins
People reportedly saw a lot of luxury and class at the Consensus Crypto Conference 2018 that started to take place on Monday in Manhattan. They saw Lamborghinis roaring through the streets near the Hilton Midtown, site of the Consensus 2018 conference.
However, these lamborghnis did not belong to investors in bitcoin, or any other digital coin. Instead, two of the luxury cars were from Broadway Supercars, a New Jersey-based car rental, and one belonged to company founder John Nouri.
Nouri told he was paid and given the job of parking the lambos for four to five hours on the Monday morning on Sixth Ave just outside a Hilton hotel, where over 8,000+ attendees are expected to attend from financial institutions, enterprise tech leaders, leading industry startups, investors, and academic and policy groups who are ushering in the new digital currency economy
Nouri, whose company rents Lamborghinis out for $1,000 a day, said
“We do a lot of this for a lot of companies all the time. It’s an attention grabber. It’s for the people walking in. They all say once you make money in crypto, you buy a lambo. I never made money with crypto but I have ten lambos,”
Last year at the Consensus Conference, one Bitcoin would have cost you about $2 500. Now the top digital token is worth almost four times as much, though that still pales in comparison to the $20,000 price tag.
