A hardcore supporter, Saylor has invested billions of dollars in Bitcoin. He, however, does not see it as just an investment opportunity. He said:
I found Bitcoin because I had a problem and the traditional solution didn’t look like a solution anymore.
Referring to its qualities as a payment medium, the founder has again and again stressed on why Bitcoin is a better form of money. In this specific podcast, he notes that Bitcoin gives users the big tech network that they want, “with all the dominance of Apple, or Google, or Facebook but without the company attached… What you’re getting is just the pure big tech network.”
The product of bitcoin, is just bitcoin.
Earlier, Saylor and his company Microstrategy have repeatedly made the news. They’ve consistently been speaking in favor of Bitcoin and its use as a payment system. As of its last count, Microstrategy HODLs almost 105,085 BTC.
Considered for a long time to be one of the biggest Bitcoin whales, Saylor has been repeatedly accused of causing the Bitcoin boom. For now, the crypto’s value struggles along at $32,523.
