Microstrategy CEO Says He Could Liquidate $200M in Bitcoin Holdings At Any Time

By Abhimanyu Krishnan | News | 23 Sep 2020


Microstrategy CEO Michael Saylor, in an interview with Bloomberg on September 22, said that the firm’s $400 million in Bitcoin (BTC) holdings could be “liquidated at any time.”

  • Saylor believes that Bitcoin is less risky than both gold and cash, and though he was optimistic about the future, he is not averse to cashing out
  • The CEO said, “we can liquidate it any day of the week, any hour of the day...If I needed to liquidate $200 million of Bitcoin, I believe I could do it on a Saturday.”
  • Saylor also said that a major reason why he chose to invest in Bitcoin was because of the Federal Reserve’s relaxing of inflation policy
  • Microstrategy will continue to invest in Bitcoin going into the future, while Saylor believes that Bitcoin is the only asset with a positive yield at the moment
  • Saylor was once a Bitcoin detractor; in recent times, former detractors like Jim Cramer have changed their stance on cryptocurrencies
