    Meeting on Twitter

    Elon Musk’s presence was not foreseen at this event. It was in the wake of a Post by Dorsey on Twitter that the CEO of Tesla intervened in a subtle way: “Bibiurioso?”, he asked. Following the comment, the head of Twitter has encouraged Musk to participate during his presentation: “We are going to have a talk at the event. You can share all your curiosities…”

    A proposal that Musk seems to have accepted after an exchange of messages: “For the bitcuriosos? All right, let’s do it.”

    The comings and goings of Elon Musk with bitcoin

    When Elon Musk speaks out about cryptocurrencies, the bread goes up. Something that is more than proven after his comings and goings with bitcoin. The tech mogul emerged as one of the leading proponents of cryptocurrency by buying 1,500 million bitcoin through Tesla and accepting it as a payment method for the company’s cars.

    However, last May it announced that Tesla would stop accepting bitcoin due to its environmental impact. A decision that is reversible if the cryptocurrency is able to modify its policy, but that meant a devaluation of more than 15% in a matter of hours.

    Musk’s Twitter account is an element of volatility that makes the world of cryptocurrencies even more unstable and imperceptible than it already is.  In addition to bitcoin, he also publicly supported Dogecoin, which experienced a big rise since then, but which went back down when the entrepreneur claimed it was a “scam”.

    So, all cryptocurrency lovers will be waiting to know what Musk’s positioning will be at the event with Jack Dorsey. A talk that promises to leave many headlines and that will surely make digital currencies fluctuate.
