Saylor continues to advocate for Bitcoin
The letter also mentioned that even though Microstrategy’s executives were finding it hard to get liability insurance, the company is thriving well off the BTC. Notably, Saylor has provided the executives with insurance from his purse. One of the reasons that Microstrategy took this leap in Bitcoin purchase was that the CEO held a 68% stake in the company. This has also shown why companies in the same line have not been able to replicate his feat in the Bitcoin market.
Saylor has also been a massive voice for Bitcoin since he made his first purchase for the firm back in 2020. A recent publication mentioned that the company was looking to take a collateralized loan in Bitcoin, using the proceeds to purchase more digital assets. Although Bitcoin has not been doing well recently, high-value purchases by Microstrategy and Terra have impacted the asset’s price.
