MicroStrategy made waves when it announced in early August it was moving $500,000,000 in treasury reserves out of cash. At least $250 million were to be moved into bitcoin

Earlier this week, the company announced its final bitcoin purchases totaled $425 million. 

In this conversation with NLW, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor explains:

  • Why he’s always treated the company with a long time horizon

  • Why the asset inflation rate is the real inflation rate

  • How he became convinced that bitcoin is the best treasury asset in the world 

  • Why Michael believes some other companies will follow suit, but better do so quick

  • Why the intensity of maximalists is actually part of the reason he grew conviction around the asset 

  • Why he would buy every bitcoin if he could
