Jack Dorsey Tells Elon Musk: Bitcoin Has 'Irreverence' Factor Going For It Just As Much As Dogecoin

Twitter Inc TWTR and Square Inc SQ CEO Jack Dorsey told Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk that Bitcoin BTC/USD matches Dogecoin DOGE/USD when it comes to “irreverence.”

“The Dogecoin community I think is somewhat irreverent obviously,” said Musk while explaining why he liked the cryptocurrency.

Dorsey said that what attracted him to Bitcoin in the first place was its “irreverence.”

The Twitter CEO acknowledged that “it was important to have fun” while touching on the resilience of Bitcoin. He said while Bitcoin is a bit inaccessible, but as people get into it the apex coin gets “more accessible and more spreadable.”

Why It Matters: BTC, DOGE, and other altcoins shot up post the comments on the debate that counted Musk, Dorsey, and Ark Invest’s Cathie Wood as participants.

Dorsey hoped that Bitcoin could bring about “world peace” and said that the apex coin reminded him of the early days of the internet.

Musk revealed that he owned more BTC than he did Ethereum ETH/USD and DOGE.
