Last month, we wrote about the upcoming summit designed to “destigmatize” Bitcoin narratives for business leaders. The one-day “The ₿ Word” summit was originally scheduled to be hosted by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and ARK Investment Managements founder Cathie Wood. The ₿ Word is scheduled for Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
Today, the organizers of the conference confirmed the event will also include Tesla founder, Elon Musk. In a breaking tweet, Bitcoin Magazine reported the summit will feature a live discussion between Elon Musk, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, and Cathie Wood. The three tech heavyweights will be onstage live together talking about Bitcoin and the role it can serve for institutions across the globe.

Responding to the tweet, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey asked Musk if he could borrow a wig for the event. To which Musk replied, “Sure, I have a ton.”

The initiative is designed to explain how institutions can and should embrace it, and raise awareness around areas of the network that need support. According to the information on its website, The ₿ Word will launch on July 21, 2021, offering a live experience and a library of content to the investor community, enabling a more informed discussion about the role Bitcoin can serve for institutions across the globe.
As part of its inaugural launch, The ₿ Word is hosting a one-day summit designed to “destigmatize” Bitcoin narratives for business leaders. Featured speakers include Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, founder, CEO and CIO of ARK Invest Cathie Wood, Michael Morell Senior Counselor of Beacon Global Strategies, and Former Acting and Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and a host of other tech leaders.
The event is hosted by The Crypto Council for Innovation (CCI), a global alliance of crypto industry leaders with a mission to demonstrate the transformational promise of crypto and communicate its benefits to policymakers, regulators, and people around the globe.
