The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX and the richest man on earth, Elon Musk, is for the first time to speak at a bitcoin conference.
The B Word, organized by Square’s and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey together with Cathie Wood of Ark Invest will livestream on the 21st of July, about three weeks from now.
Initially Musk was not on the panel, but a conversation on Twitter between him and Dorsey led to an invitation which he accepted.
Meaning two of the world’s biggest titans are going to gather together to chat bitcoin in a very first.
Dorsey himself made his stage debut in Miami where he was heckled but came across as a genuine bitcoiner and even said he’d leave Twitter for bitcoin.
Musk rarely makes appearances with this being his first chance to talk just bitcoin to a global audience of bitcoiners and, considering the speakers, a more general audience than usual for bitcoin conferences.
We don’t know what he will talk about, but he’ll have plenty of explaining to do, starting with the quick shift in accepting bitcoin for Tesla payments.
We’re not expecting any Andrew Neil style grilling however as bitcoin conferences usually are a gentle affair of a meeting between different people with an interest in bitcoin.
So it will be interesting to hear what the eccentric says as presumably he tries to mend relations with crypto bros in what must be the most high profile bitcoin meeting ever to talk about the B word.
