Saylor on Bitcoin Demand vs Supply
“There’s only a few ETFs… and there’s hundreds of billions of dollars waiting to buy them when they’re available, so you’ve got 10 times demand chasing supply for a bitcoin ETF right now,” Saylor told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Tuesday.
MicroStrategy’s Bitcoin Holdings
MicroStrategy holds about $6 billion worth of bitcoin after a series of purchases starting August 2020. Saylor said his company’s transformation into a bitcoin play is “complete,” and there is little need for MicroStrategy to keep purchasing more bitcoin for its corporate treasury.
“We have more bitcoin than any other public company in the world, so our transformation is complete…We have plenty of bitcoin.”
Saylor added that he believes eventually all companies will allocate funds to digital assets.
“Every public company will soon hold digital assets on their balance sheet.”
Michael Saylor remains highly bullish on bitcoin’s future as an asset class and believes companies will continue allocating funds to the cryptocurrency. His statements indicate strong institutional demand that is currently outpacing the limited investment vehicles available.
