Michael Saylor Claims His Twitter Exchange With Elon Prompted Tesla to Invest in Bitcoin

MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor has become one of the biggest Bitcoin proponents in recent time which is evident from his company’s $2.1 billion Bitcoin investment since August 2020. Saylor in a recent interview with Time magazine claimed that his Twitter exchange with Elon Musk back in December was one of the key reasons behind Tesla’s $1.5 billion Bitcoin purchase a couple of months later.

#Bitcoin is an idea whose time has come.

Saylor explained that Tesla and Square are just the tips of the iceberg and hundreds of others would follow.
 MicroStrategy is the first publicly traded company that made a material investment, but Square followed. And Tesla followed. But they’re the tip of the iceberg. We did a “Bitcoin for Corporations” summit in February. I thought it would be a couple of thousand people showing up. It ended up being more than 10,000 a day, and it broke our video server.
Tesla’s Bitcoin purchase in February had quite an impact on the mainstream financial world where many discussed the possible impact of Tesla’s volatile investment, but more than that Bitcoin’s popularity as a store of value saw a massive bump. Microstrategy can boast of being an early adopter as they saw the potential in the top cryptocurrency when its price was hovering around $10,o00.
