Fireside chat with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Caitlin Long

The fireside chat on March 2 features Independent Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Caitlin Long, Founder and CEO of Custodia Bank. It will be an honest conversation about how blockchain policy plays a role in accelerating privacy, transparency, and sovereignty for American citizens. Kennedy will host an audience question-and-answer session following the Fireside Chat, where the community can participate in an open conversation.

“ETHDenver is a big tent that invites conversation and sparks action. We are a blank canvas where anyone – from political leaders to builders – can have meaningful discussion and work to solve issues,” John Paller, Founder and Executive Steward of ETHDenver, said.

“We are not taking sides, we’re not left or right. We are for moving up. It’s Web3’s town hall that catalyzes creative collisions. This is an opportunity to talk about how we can advance policy. If we’re not providing the space for political leaders to talk about blockchain’s role in policy, who will?,” Paller said.
