Bitcoin saved MicroStrategy from sale
MicroStrategy founder and CEO Michael Saylor is undeterred by bitcoin’s recent 40% drop. For him, the sale is ruled out: “never”.
Gradually converting the company’s balance sheet to bitcoin was, in his view, the only possible way to avoid a sale, as he told Bloomberg:
“I had an idea of the consequences of doing nothing. I had to watch 99% of my competitors go under. Continuing with the status quo would have led us to a dead end. There were only two options, sell or follow the strategy of bitcoin”.
