Jack Dorsey Invites Elon Musk To Have 'The Talk' At Bitcoin Conference Hosted By Square, ARK Invest, Paradigm

What Happened: Square Inc SQ and Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) CEO Jack Dorsey recently unveiled ‘The B Word’ -  a new initiative to educate institutions on Bitcoin BTC/USD, launched in tandem with ARK Invest and Paradigm Ventures.

The B Word is essentially a Bitcoin conference scheduled to take place on July 21, which will feature panel discussions from Ark Invest CEO Cathie Wood, Blockstream founder Adam Back, and several other notable speakers, including Dorsey himself.

Dorsey shared the event on Twitter, saying it would focus on educating companies about what makes Bitcoin’s open development “so perfect.”

Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk took the opportunity to further antagonize the Bitcoin community by replying “Bicurious?”, before adding “Oh right…Bitcoin haha”

“Bizarre! Let’s you and I have a conversation at the event. You can share all your curiosities…” Dorsey responded. “Let’s have THE talk.”

Peter McCormack, host of the "What Bitcoin Did" podcast, also chimed into the discussion, saying he was “happy to help” given that he will be one of the moderators at the event.

Price Action: At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $33,159, losing 2.42% overnight.

Meanwhile, Dogecoin DOGE/USD was up 9.71% over the past 24-hours, trading at $0.26.
