Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has agreed to take part in The ₿ Word, an online conference about Bitcoin hosted by Twitter creator Jack Dorsey. Although the discussion on the invitation was filled with humor, Musk will probably speak at the significant event.
Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and e-payment solutions company Square Inc., said his company will always work to make Bitcoin better. Now he takes the next step and presents "The ₿ Word"—an online conference that aims to educate institutions about Bitcoin.
"The ₿ Word is a Bitcoin focused initiative that aims to demystify and destigmatize mainstream narratives about Bitcoin, explain how institutions can and should embrace it, and raise awareness around areas of the network that need support."
This conference aims to introduce Bitcoin to large companies. It will feature top-notch speakers who have a lot to say about Bitcoin and its development:
- Cathie Wood, Founder, CEO and CIO of ARK Invest
- Jack Dorsey, CEO of Square, Inc.
- Adam Back, Co-Founder and CEO of Blockstream
- Michael Morell, Senior Counselor of Beacon Global Strategies, Former Acting and Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency
The conference will host on July 21, 2021, and will provide the investor community with a living experience and a library of content that will enable a more informed discussion of the role that Bitcoin can play for organizations around the world. After Dorsey shared information about the event on Twitter, Elon Musk expressed interest in it.
In his own fashion, Musk reacted with a joke and wrote that The "₿" Word probably means Bicurious. This word describes people who are curious to try relationships and sex with people of the same gender, but who do not call themselves bisexual. It should be noted that Musk and Dorsey are friends and this manner of communication was quite acceptable. After a few humorous tweets, the head of Twitter invited Musk to talk about Bitcoin at the event and Musk replied with "let’s do it.”
For the Bitcurious? Very well then, let’s do it 😉— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 25, 2021
Despite the fact that this tweet exchange was humorous, Musk can still join the conference, since he is not indifferent to Bitcoin and its impact on our lives. Tesla previously bought $1.5 billion worth of the popular cryptocurrency and began accepting it as a payment method. However, later the company stopped accepting payments in Bitcoin. Musk has promised that Tesla's operations with Bitcoin will resume after its mining becomes more environmentally friendly.
