This isn’t just a one-time thing. In fact, Saylor has long been an advocate of Bitcoin. Recently, he has been very active on his Twitter account, sharing posts that hope for and expect a Bitcoin rise. In one of his tweets, he shared an old interview he gave where he spoke of Apple being bullish. Placing the top tech company in parallel with the top crypto, he said, ‘Bitcoin is a dominant monetary network that everyone needs, no one can stop, and few understand.” Just earlier this month, MicroStrategy also released news that it was going to raise $400 million to buy more Bitcoin. In fact, MicroStrategy and Michael Saylor’s interest in the coin has been a major driver of its price. How this impacts BTC’s value, we’ll just have to wait and see. As of today, Bitcoin is valued at $32,368, an 18.11% fall from last week’s price.
