A trio of Bitcoin advocates are coming together today for a discussion about cryptocurrency where "nothing is off limits." Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX; Jack Dorsey, CEO of Square and Twitter; and Cathie Wood, CEO of Ark Invest, are speaking on a live panel at The B Word event on Wednesday.
The B Word event "aims to demystify and destigmatize mainstream narratives about Bitcoin," according to an FAQ on the event's website. The free virtual event will mostly consist of prerecorded presentations, but the panel with Musk, Dorsey and Wood will be live.
Bitcoin and other digital coins were initially intended to be decentralized digital currencies, but in recent years, they've become more of an investment. Prices can also be extremely volatile. Prior to the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Bitcoin's price was just below $9,000. It peaked in April, almost reaching $65,000.
