Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has now been confirmed as a speaker. In addition Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Cathie Wood of Ark Invest will keynote the B Word.
The conference begins at 9AM PDT, just as Silicon Valley wakes up. That translates to 12 o’clock for New York and 5PM for Europe while China gets to be asleep.
The conference is designed in different tracks, or sessions, with the Musk & Jack one called “Bitcoin as a Tool for Economic Empowerment.”
The setup is not clear in regards to whether it’s more a discussion between all three and Steve Lee, the moderator, or whether each gets to speak.
But the whole sessions is to last just one hour with it livestreamed at 11AM, making it prime time in Europe at 7PM.
Just what Musk in particular will say remains to be seen. Tesla is facing a potential loss in the second quarter due to their bitcoin holdings, so there might be some announcement, although nothing is confirmed.
In addition he is also facing considerable competition both in the electric vehicles market and now in the space race with Jeff Bezos showcasing a reusable rocket on Tuesday.
Thus you’d expect him to up his game with rumors he might get into making bitcoin mining more green, but it’s not very clear whether those rumors have come out of thin air or otherwise.
