Tech billionaires Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey have agreed to discuss bitcoin at an event in July.
On a bizarre Twitter thread, Musk responded to a tweet from Dorsey promoting an event called “The B Word,” which aims to encourage corporations and institutional investors to adopt Bitcoin.
“Bikurios?” said the Tesla CEO, apparently referring to the “B” word in question.
In response, Dorsey said on Twitter, “Bizarre! Let’s have a chat at the event. You can share all of your curiosities … “
Musk agreed. “For the Bitcurious? Well, we’ll do it then, “he said, to which Dorsey later replied:” Done!
The event is scheduled to take place on July 21st, according to its website, and “will provide the investor community with a live experience and library of content that will enable a more informed discussion of the role of Bitcoin for institutions around the world.”
Musk’s comments have put Bitcoin investors on a wild ride lately. The eccentric Tesla boss initially supported Bitcoin and briefly added the hashtag #bitcoin to his Twitter biography in January.
He also posted a meme suggesting that he hasn’t fallen in love with Bitcoin anymore.
But earlier this month, Musk said Tesla would accept the cryptocurrency if it is confirmed that at least half of Bitcoin mining is powered by clean energy.
Bitcoin fell below the all-important $ 30,000 mark on Tuesday, briefly wiping out all of its 2021 gains. The digital asset has since surged back over $ 33,000 but is still up nearly 50% from its all-time high of nearly $ 65,000, which it hit in April.
