Microstrategy’s goal with this

In fact, apart from the company’s holdings, Micahel Saylor himself has 17,732 Bitcoins as part of his portfolio. Saylor also firmly believes that Bitcoin will replace gold as a better store of value in the future. In fact, he thinks there is no other actual alternative to Bitcoin and doesn’t recommend investing in other cryptocurrencies. Microstrategy’s investment alone will make them one of the largest companies if Bitcoin reaches where Micahel Saylor thinks it will.

Michael has also explained the criticism behind Bitcoin’s energy usage. He said that Bitcoin uses the wasted energy of the world, and that makes it even better. Since it can be mined anywhere using off-the-grid electricity for BTC, mining is a good use case.

Not everyone appreciates this idea

While Microstrategy is betting big on Bitcoin and their fans and followers support it, a lot of people don’t. Since this is the company’s money being used to buy BTC, it could lead to a collapse in case the price of Bitcoin crashes to never recover again. Having too many eggs in a bucket can be risky if you look at it from a pure investment perspective.
