Dogecoin Up 18%, Bitcoin Rising As Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey Prepare For BTC Talk

Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey’s appearance to discuss Bitcoin at today’s B-Word event is pushing Dogecoin and Bitcoin to the north

The B-Word conference that is to take place later today at 11 a.m. PDT will see two billionaire entrepreneurs—Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey—meet to have a long-anticipated talk about Bitcoin.

Some expect the Tesla chief to mention his beloved Dogecoin at the conference as well.

The director of research at Forbes, Steven Ehrlich, has tweeted a chart showing that both Dogecoin and Bitcoin are rising. The reason, according to Ehrlich, is Musk and Dorsey preparing to take the stage later today.

According to data provided by the CoinMarketCap service, Musk’s favorite meme crypto, DOGE, is up almost 18 percent, trading at $0.1921, while Bitcoin crossed the $31,300 level earlier today, rising over five percent.
