Lam­borgh­i­nis lined the street out­side a mas­sive NYC cryp­tocur­ren­cy con­fer­ence, but it turns out they were only staged rentals

Lam­borgh­i­nis have long been the sym­bol of aspi­ra­tional afflu­ence with­in the cryp­tocur­ren­cy com­mu­ni­ty. But it turns out that the ones parked out­side Con­sen­sus this week did­n’t actu­al­ly belong to any­one.

  • Lam­borgh­i­nis were spot­ted parked out­side New York’s blockchain con­fer­ence Con­sen­sus this week.
  • Cryp­tocur­ren­cy enthu­si­asts and oth­ers have long revered the Lam­borgh­i­ni as an aspi­ra­tional sym­bol of wealth.
  • But it turns out that the Lam­borgh­i­nis in ques­tion did­n’t actu­al­ly belong to any of the atten­dees: They were stagedrentals.

Lam­borgh­i­nis have long been an aspi­ra­tional sym­bol with­in the cryp­tocur­ren­cy com­mu­ni­ty. So it made sense that sev­er­al of the cov­et­ed Ital­ian sports cars would make an appear­ance this week out­side Con­sen­sus, New York’s mas­sive blockchain con­fer­ence.

Onlook­ers first post­ed pho­tos to Twit­ter of three gleam­ing Lam­borgh­i­nis parked out­side the Hilton Mid­town Hotel in Man­hat­tan ear­ly Mon­day morn­ing.

But, as it turned out, the cars don’t actu­al­ly belong to any of the atten­dees.

Accord­ing to reports, the cars had been rent­ed by the cryp­tocur­ren­cy exchange Bit­Mex, and it’s spec­u­lat­ed that the com­pa­ny paid $1,000 apiece for the flashy stunts.

The staged Lam­bos weren’t the only part of Con­sen­sus that was fake, either. A group of bankers protest­ing cryp­tocur­ren­cies also turned out to be a mar­ket­ing stunt for a min­ing com­pa­ny.
