Saylor has turned into a big-time Bitcoin proponent and often credited with bringing in several other Fortune 500 companies to the Bitcoin ecosystem. The firm started buying Bitcoin using treasury cash and convertible notes. The firm has made it clear that they would continue to invest in the top cryptocurrency as they believe it is a better inflation hedge than Gold and the US Dollar.
MicroStrategy Shows the way Amid Elon Musk Bitcoin Debacle
Saylor has also taken credit for bringing Elon Musk and Tesla into the Bitcoin after the electric car manufacturer purchased $1.5 billion worth of BTC a couple of months ago. However, Musk true to his reputation has gone ‘rouge’ within a quarter of making the biggest Bitcoin purchase. On May 12, Musk announced that Tesla would no longer accept Bitcoin as a payment for their cars, just a month after opening a Bitcoin payment gateway for US customers. He also reignited several debunked FUDs all at once especially the Environmental concerns regarding the mining of Bitcoin.
MicroStartegy announced a $15 million Bitcoin purchase just a day after Musk’s Twitter meltdown to prove their belief in Bitcoin. Saylor had also cleared air about potentially selling his share of BTC during a Twitter conversation where he said that he has no plans of selling his Bitcoin holdings.
