In the middle of last week, MicroStrategy, the company that owns the most Bitcoins in the world, was suddenly “unmasked” and secretly sold about 8000 BTC since the beginning of 2022 until now. Previously, this company has continuously bottomed to buy a large amount of this cryptocurrency, and currently holds more than 129,000 Bitcoins.
Recently, Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy, officially denied that false rumor. Share on Personal Twitterhe said: “Don’t know if anyone is interested, but when MicroStrategy makes any changes to its corporate strategy (including buying & holding Bitcoin), or to Bitcoin holdings, we will always be transparent with shareholders through U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, which are open to the public.“.
Saylor also emphasized that important MicroStrategy changes, covering all issues related to Bitcoin in particular and cryptocurrencies in general, are included in the SEC document. Therefore, there is absolutely no way that this company has stolen thousands of BTC since the beginning of the year.
The CEO of MicroStrategy is a staunch believer of Bitcoin, sees it as a long-term investment, and has repeatedly stated that he will never sell his cryptocurrency. At the 2022 Bitcoin Conference, Saylor stated that he is now more bullish on the coin than ever. Currently, his company owns 129,218 Bitcoins, the most recent transaction being the purchase of 4,167 BTC on April 5 for $ 194 million.
