Bitcoin is his life’s work. Now Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is taking the next step and introducing” The I Word”: an online conference designed to educate institutions about Bitcoin.
Conference with top-class speakers
Whether MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, ARK-Invest founder Cathie Woo or Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: Gradually more and more pronounced Bitcoin bulls are found, which can not be shaken off even by hard corrections or persistent bear markets. According to Dorsey, Bitcoin even represents his “life’s mission” – and now he is turning his words into action.
As Dorsey currently announces on Twitter, he has now launched the”The Word” initiative. This is a conference designed to familiarize large companies with Bitcoin (to buy from Libertex or eToro) and educate them about the # 1 cryptocurrency. Officially, that sounds like it:
“The ein Word is a Bitcoin-focused initiative that aims to demystify and destigmatize mainstream narratives about Bitcoin, explain how institutions can and should embrace Bitcoin, and raise awareness of areas of the network that need support.“
The conference is scheduled to kick off on July 21, 2021 and will provide the investor community with a live experience including a library of content that will enable a more informed discussion about the role Bitcoin can play for institutions around the world.
The Bitcoin Developer community “above all else”
Among the speakers are numerous well-known crypto personalities: in addition to Jack Dorsey and Cathie Wood, Blockstream co-founder and CEO Adam Back, Brink Director John Newbery and Michael Morell, senior counselor of Beacon Global Strategies and former acting and deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency (yes, that CIA). The following priorities will be addressed:
- Demystify Bitcoin
- Supporting the Developer ecosystem
- Securing the Bitcoin Network
- Regulate Bitcoin
- Preserving the Bitcoin Ethos
- Bitcoin as a tool for economic empowerment
Dorsey about the conference:
“The Bitcoin developer community is above it all. As more and more companies and institutions get involved, we all want to help protect and spread what makes Bitcoin’s open development so perfect. This day focuses on education and actions to do just that.“
The # bitcoin development community above all else.
As more companies and institutions get into the mix, we all want to help protect and spread what makes # bitcoin open development so perfect.
This day is focused on education and actions to do just that.https:/ / t. co / 5pxX1LIVVA

Elon Musk: “Let’s do this”
Interesting detail in the margin: Tesla CEO Elon Musk also speaks in the comments under Dorsey’s tweet. As usual on the subject of Bitcoin, however, not very productive: Musk makes fun of the name for the conference and pretends to misunderstand it.
He asks Dorsey if the” B “in” The The Word “(which obviously stands for Bitcoin) means” Bicurious”.

Background: “Bi-curious” refers to people who are curious to try relationships and sex with people of same-sex identity, but do not describe themselves as bisexual. Musk, of course, knows exactly that it’s about Bitcoin – but can’t help but “troll” the Twitter boss and the Bitcoin community with his comment, that is, to provoke. But Dorsey reacts quick-witted and load Musk even invited to the conference:
“Let’s have a conversation at the event. You can share all your curiosities…“
Musk’s reaction: a promise! However, with a winkersmiley behind it. He writes:
“Very well, then let’s do this.“
For the Bitcurious? Very well then, let’s do it 😉

Of course, if Musk sticks to his promise to talk to Dorsey about BTC at the Bitcoin conference, it would be a small sensation-even if he will probably form a critical dissenting voice to the rest of the participants.
