The Bobby Politifi Meme Token, trading on Uniswap under the ticker BOBBY, had a high-profile relaunch this morning at Consensus 2024.

The event, taking place now in Austin, Texas, marked a new phase for a token that has matured from a simple meme coin into an influential movement supporting Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s vision for the future of crypto.

The relaunch event on May 29 showed the token’s transition and its broader mission.

“$Bobby is more than just a token; it is a movement that resonates with the ideals of independence in the face of a captured, secretive, and centralized government,” stated the press release.

The token sponsored Kyle Kemper’s Kennedy24 bus, stationed at the Consensus venue, as part of the launch festivities. Kemper and the team behind BOBBY engaged attendees with merchandise and a series of surprise activities to boost awareness and support.

Initially launched at ETH Denver under RFKJ, BOBBY achieved a peak market cap of $35 million earlier this year.

“This strategic move underscores the project’s commitment to listening to its community and evolving to better meet its needs and aspirations,” the release noted, explaining why the rebranding to BOBBY reflected the nickname used by Kennedy’s supporters.

BOBBY is officially trending on DexScreener.

The announcement also introduced Kemper as the new advisor for the BOBBY Token. Kemper, a figure in the crypto space with over a decade of experience, is expected to improve the token’s direction and community engagement.

“I am excited to join the $Bobby team as an advisor,” said Kemper. “The vision behind $Bobby aligns perfectly with my own beliefs about the power of decentralization to effect positive change.”

Kemper’s involvement aims to drive further community development and global awareness through new crypto solutions. His recent interview on The Tucker Carlson Network stressed his advocacy for freedom and the potential of blockchain to create a new society with more participation.
