Saylor has been one of bitcoin’s most bullish proponents in the institutional space. He believes that “Regulatory clarity will accelerate the adoption of bitcoin by corporations and institutional investors,” the CEO said this week. He revealed in October last year that he personally owns 17,732 BTC.

Microstrategy began stockpiling BTC in August last year when it made bitcoin the company’s primary reserve asset. In December, the company purchased 29,646 bitcoins for $650 million at an average price of $21,925 per bitcoin. Its aggressive bitcoin purchase strategy has caused a Citigroup analyst to downgrade the company’s stock to a sell rating.
