Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey, two billionaire entrepreneurs, will meet at the B-Word conference later today at 11 a.m. PDT for a long-awaited discussion about Bitcoin.
On June 25, Dorsey asked Musk to have “THE conversation” regarding the flagship cryptocurrency and Bitcoin miners who mint new Bitcoins using fossil fuels and renewable energy.
Some speculate that the Tesla CEO may also mention his favorite cryptocurrency, Dogecoin, at the meeting.
Steven Ehrlich, the director of research at Forbes, tweeted a chart demonstrating that both Dogecoin and Bitcoin are on the rise. The reason, he claims, is that Musk and Dorsey are getting ready to take the stage later today.
Musk’s favorite meme currency DOGE is up about 18 percent, trading at $0.1921, according to CoinMarketCap statistics, while Bitcoin crossed the $31,300 milestone earlier today, climbing over 5%.
Elon Musk hyped the impending meeting with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey by sarcastically promising to sing a special cover of the Swedish band Europe’s “Final Countdown” song with Dorsey on his Twitter page.
