Bitcoin Will Not and Should Not Be a Currency in the US, Says Michael Saylor

MicroStrategy CEO and Bitcoin bull Michael Saylor says there’s no probability Bitcoin will probably be used as foreign money in the US.

Saylor has been a prolific Bitcoin supporter ever since MicroStrategy added the prime crypto asset to its stability sheet in August of 2020.

Despite his advocacy for Bitcoin, Saylor tells crypto analyst Scott Melker that he believes it’s higher for BTC whether it is considered as property relatively than as foreign money.

“I don’t actually assume that Bitcoin’s going to be foreign money in the US ever. Nor do I feel it must be. I actually assume logically it must be handled as property. It’s like proudly owning a constructing, or proudly owning a bar of gold, or proudly owning a share of inventory. It’s property.

And what it’s doing is it’s demonetizing different types of property. If you may have a million {dollars} and you need to select whether or not you purchase collectibles or a home or a second home or an ETF or a share of Apple inventory, or begin a enterprise, or purchase artwork, or purchase a bar of gold, or purchase Bitcoin. That’s the fungible choice you need to make.”

Saylor compares Bitcoin to Apple, Amazon and Google, and says that betting in opposition to vital advances in expertise has traditionally been a dangerous alternative.

“If you purchase and maintain, that’s good, and at any level in the historical past of expertise, in the event you had bought, you made a mistake, proper? With the one caveat, you need to purchase the winner. You have to purchase the class killer. You have to purchase Facebook, Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft. 

So the query is – how lengthy do you gotta watch them win earlier than you resolve they’re the winner? I feel 30 years is a bit late. If you gotta wait 30 years earlier than you decide the winner, you most likely received’t get outsized returns. But you can’ve watched them win for 10 years and purchased them and nonetheless made a lot of cash.”
