MicroStrategy won’t sell its Bitcoin stash as it is the best defense against inflation

Despite falling around 43 percent from its November 2021 all-time high, Michael Saylor said that even an extended bear market would not tempt him to sell the crypto.

Bitcoin’s price has declined since the start of 2022. However, the price drop won’t make MicroStrategy deviate from its multi-billion dollar crypto acquisition strategy and the company won’t be selling its BTC stash.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin traded at $39,075.08 based on CoinMarketCap data, which means that the crypto is down around 43 percent from its November 2021 all-time high near $69,000. However, MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor said that even an extended bear market would not tempt him to sell the crypto.

“Never. No. We're not sellers,” Saylor told Bloomberg in an interview. “We're only acquiring and holding bitcoin, right? That's our strategy.”

MicroStrategy became the first publicly traded firm in the U.S. to acquire and hold BTC as part of its balance sheet, according to Business Insider. It is also the top publicly listed company with the largest BTC holdings and it has accumulated 124,391 Bitcoins valued at around $5.2 billion.

In August 2020, the business intelligence firm announced that it bought $250 million in Bitcoin (BTC) as part of the firm’s capital allocation strategy. The Nasdaq-listed company cited Bitcoin’s long-term appreciation potential and store of value for its decision to invest in the crypto.

“This is not a speculation, nor a hedge,” Saylor said when explaining the company’s decision to invest $250 million in Bitcoin. “It is a deliberate corporate strategy to adopt the Bitcoin Standard.”

Since its initial purchase, the company has continuously added to its Bitcoin portfolio, staying true to its promise of buying more of the crypto. “We will continue to pursue our strategy of acquiring bitcoin with excess cash and we may from time to time, subject to market conditions, issue debt or equity securities in capital raising transactions with the objective of using the proceeds to purchase additional bitcoin,” Saylor said in February 2021.

The CEO explained that he isn’t concerned about the crypto's slide from its ATH of $69,000 in November to less than $40,000 this month. As far as Saylor is concerned, his company’s BTC holing is a source of “great comfort” considering the high inflation scenario.

“The best defense against inflation is a bitcoin standard,” the CEO said. “So, I don't really think we could do anything better to position our company in an inflationary environment than to convert our balance sheet into bitcoin.”

HAVE YOU BEEN SCAMMED OF YOUR COINS AND WANTS TO GET IT RECOVERED BACK???

I invested a total of$95,000.00USD worth of Bitcoin with an online company who does trading and was guaranteed a payout of 25% a week. They ended up shutting down their company website but their website was still running. So I could still see my dashboard at that time and instead of paying weekly they ended up compounding my money. It ended up compounding to$179, 000USD so I requested for a withdrawal which was declined before they shutdown their website, I complained to my colleague at work who directed me about this recovery expert, Mr. Morris Ray, that helped him, I contacted him immediately, what surprised me most, was that I recovered my money that same week. You can contact him on his email at MorrisGray830 @ Gmail . com and on WhatsApp: + 1 (607) 698-0239 and he will assist you on the steps to recover your invested funds.
Just trying to help those who where scammed just the way I was too.

BITCOIN RECOVERY IS REAL!!! ( MorrisGray830 At gmail Dot Com, is the man for the job )
This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn't succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn't.
He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%. I thought there were no such good genuine guys anymore on earth, but Mr Morris Gray brought my trust to humanity again. GOD bless you sir...you can reach him via ( MORRIS GRAY 830 at Gmaill dot com ) or Whatsapp +1 (607)698-0239..

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: [email protected]

Have you gotten yourself involved in a cryptocurrency scam or any scam at all? If yes, know that you you are not alone, there’re a lot of people in this same situation. I was a victim of a cryptocurrency scam that cost me a lot of money. This happened a few weeks ago, there’s only one solution which is to talk to the right people, if you don’t do this you will end up being really depressed . I was really devastated until i sent a mail to an expert team who came highly recommended - secure2invest dot com or whatsapp +14253121045. I started seeing some hope for myself from the moment i sent them a mail. The good part is they made the entirely process stress free for me, i literally sat and waited for them to finish and i received what i lost in my wallet
