Back in January, Saylor expressed his optimism for Bitcoin. Back then, he said that 2021 will be a good year for bitcoin. In a CNBC interview, he showed confidence in their bitcoin purchases at the time.
Now, that same confidence shows as the firm started to continuously buy bitcoins, even laying out plans to buy $2000 worth of bitcoins per second.
The Bitcoin market seems to be going more bullish this year as many institutions continue to show interest and buy.
MicroStrategy is currently the largest independent publicly-traded business intelligence company with the leading enterprise analytics platform.
