What is Elon Musk expected to say?
In June, Musk agreed to join the line-up after a Twitter exchange with Jack Dorsey.
“Let’s you and I have a conversation at the event. you can share all your curiosities” Dorsey tweeted to Musk on June 25.
“For the Bitcurious? Very well then, let’s do it,” Musk replied.
The two billionaires stand a pole apart on their views of Bitcoin.
Dorsey has always been unapologetic about his enthusiasm despite the impact on the environment, Musk has expressed his concerns.
In February, Musk announced that Tesla would start accepting Bitcoin for purchases however it was revoked in May.
“Cryptocurrency is a good idea on many levels and we believe it has a promising future, but this cannot come at great cost to the environment,” Musk wrote.
