Jack Dorsey, Elon Musk and Cathie Wood are expected to participate in a live talk at the Bitcoin conference, which begins tomorrow.
Three popular figures from the cryptocurrency world, Jack Dorsey, Elon Musk and Cathie Wood, are expected to participate in a live talk at a Bitcoin conference. Bitcoin-centric conference “The ₿ Word” has confirmed that all three will be in attendance, and the event will begin tomorrow, July 21.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is expected to participate in a live chat with Twitter boss Jack Dorsey and Cathie Wood of Ark Invest at the conference. The event will also host other notable figures including Hong Fang from OKCoin, Back Dam from Blockstream, Sam Korus from ARK Invest, Steve Lee and Conor Okus from Square Crypto and Phillip Gradwell from Chainalysis.
The cryptocurrency space has been anticipating the event since Dorsey invited Musk to the event last month. However, details of The ₿ Word conference were only concluded yesterday. Elon Musk and Dorsey are among the most influential people in the cryptocurrency space.
Jack Dorsey’s contribution to the crypto space comes primarily from his payments company, Square. The company is currently developing a dedicated Bitcoin hardware wallet to make cryptocurrency custody more common.
Square also confirmed last week that it is working on developing a decentralized finance (DeFi) business on the Bitcoin network. Dorsey has always been a Bitcoin maximalist and has said he is not interested in other cryptocurrencies.
Elon Musk, on the other hand, has a complicated relationship with Bitcoin. He has praised and criticized the major cryptocurrency on several occasions. Tesla even stopped accepting Bitcoin as a payment method due to environmental concerns.
However, he always showed his admiration for Dogecoin, the world’s first meme coin. Cathie Wood is the CEO of Ark Invest, one of the leading institutional investors in the crypto space. Ark Invest recently filed a request to launch a Bitcoin ETF with the US SEC.
