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 embrace bitcoin.
“Bicurious? Said the CEO of Tesla, apparently referring to the “B” word in question.
In response, Dorsey from Twitter said, “Weird! Let us and you and I have a conversation at the event. You can share all your curiosities… ”
Musk agreed. “For the Bitcurious?” Alright then, let’s go, ”he said, to which Dorsey later replied,“ Done! I will settle down. “
The event will take place on July 21, according to its website, “offering a live experience and a library of content to the investment community, allowing for a more informed discussion of the role Bitcoin can play for institutions around the world.” .
Musk’s comments recently took bitcoin investors into a wild ride. The eccentric Tesla boss initially supported bitcoin, briefly adding the hashtag #bitcoin to his Twitter bio in January.
But earlier this month, Musk said Tesla will accept the cryptocurrency when it is confirmed that at least half of bitcoin mining is powered by clean energy.
Bitcoin fell below $ 30,000 on Tuesday, briefly wiping out all of its 2021 gains. Digital assets have since climbed back above $ 33,000, but are still down nearly 50% from their all-time high of nearly $ 65,000 which it reached in April.
