Attention, folks: Two rich guys are about to talk about Bitcoin.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Tesla CEO Elon Musk agreed, at least on Twitter, to chat about the world’s most popular cryptocurrency.
The exchange started with Dorsey sharing a link for the B Word conference, which launches on July 21 and aims to “demystify and destigmatize mainstream narratives about Bitcoin.”
A bizarre chat between the two ensued, but at one point Dorsey invited Musk to have “a conversation at the event,” to which Musk answered “very well then, let’s do it.”
Dorsey said he will set up the talk, and while that’s far from an official confirmation, it wouldn’t be surprising if the debate really happened, given Musk’s propensity for doing random things on a whim.

If it does happen, it could be quite interesting. Both men have recently talked about Bitcoin to no end. Dorsey has been universally positive, while Musk has voiced his concerns about the wasteful energy consumption of Bitcoin mining, which is why Tesla stopped accepting Bitcoin as payment.
Musk has complained about Bitcoin being highly centralized. He also shilled the joke cryptocurrency Dogecoin, causing its price to spike and Bitcoin’s price to plummet. Perhaps, if the two shared a stage and talked about crypto for a while, they’d tweet about it a little less?
In any case, the B Word conference’s schedule doesn’t mention Musk at writing time, with the main speakers being Dorsey, CEO of ARK Invest Cathie Wood, and CEO of Blockstream Adam Back.
