Tech billionaires Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey have agreed to discuss bitcoin at an event in July.
In a bizarre Twitter thread, Musk responded to a tweet from Dorsey promoting an event called “The B Word,” which aims to encourage businesses and institutional investors to adopt bitcoin.
“Curious?” said the Tesla CEO, seemingly referring to the word “B” in question.
In response, Twitter’s Dorsey said, “Weird! Let’s have a chat during the event. You can share all your curiosities…”
Musk agreed. “For the Bitcurious? All right, let’s do it,” he said, to which Dorsey later replied, “Ready! Will set up.”
The event will take place on July 21, according to the website, and will “provide a live experience and library of content to the investor community, enabling a more informed discussion about the role Bitcoin can serve for institutions around the world.”
Comments from Musk have recently sent bitcoin investors on a wild ride. The eccentric Tesla boss initially supported bitcoin and briefly added the hashtag #bitcoin to his Twitter bio in January.
He also posted a meme suggesting that he is no longer in love with bitcoin.
But earlier this month, Musk said Tesla would accept the cryptocurrency when it is confirmed that at least half of bitcoin mining is powered by clean energy.
Bitcoin slumped below the key $30,000 mark on Tuesday, erasing all of its 2021 gains. The digital asset has since bounced back above $33,000, but is still nearly 50% lower from the all-time high of nearly $65,000 it reached in April.
