Michael Saylor Microstrategy Bitcoin News: American software company Microstrategy is known for its aggressive Bitcoin buying strategy. The company, under cofounder Michael Saylor’s leadership, placed huge confidence in Bitcoin’s growth by accumulating large volumes of BTC. The Bitcoin purchases were made at various price dip levels over the past two years but the recent bear market incurred it heavy unrealized losses as the crypto market crashed hard due to shock incidents like the FTX collapse. Meanwhile, it appears that Saylor could again have a chance to accumulate more BTC with this latest development.
