Michael Saylor unfettered despite huge loss

MicroStrategy has made huge investment in crypto since it began amassing Bitcoin in August 2020. The firm has well over 105,000 Bitcoin in less than one year. 

However, the substantial purchases completed during the second quarter of this year have resulted in a cumulative impairment loss of $689.6 million for the company. 

The loss has not impacted Michael Saylor in any way as he posits that the firm has no plans to change its Bitcoin strategy. 

He noted that they are pleased with the results of their digital assets implementation strategy. He noted that going toward, the plan is for the firm to deploy additional capital into our digital asset strategy. 

MicroStrategy and it’s Bitcoin investment 

The firm as said previously has continued to accumulate Bitcoin since August 2020 despite being listed on NASDAQ. 

Since then, the organization has used every possible chance to buy more from relatively smaller purchases of $10 million to whopping amounts of $1 billion at once.

Taking their love for Bitcoin further, the firm has organized BTC-oriented events for corporations and retail users, MicroStrategy became a node on the Bitcoin network, and non-employee executives started receiving funds in the cryptocurrency instead of cash. 

Michael Saylor while committing to Bitcoin recently said the firm will help explain Bitcoin to the regulators, to the public and to the media.

On the future of MicroStrategy, Saylor stated, “Going forward you can expect we will purchase additional Bitcoin.
