Global Loss of Confidence in Fiat Currency Driving Bitcoin Adoption, says Michael Saylor
According to former MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, Bitcoin is experiencing a surge in adoption due to the global loss of confidence in fiat currencies. In a recent CNBC interview, Saylor stated that inflation and counterparty risks with banks are the two main dynamics driving broader adoption of Bitcoin. As investors lose faith in fiat currencies, they turn to risk-off assets like Bitcoin, which is not valued based on cash flows. Additionally, recent banking crises have further undermined investors' confidence in the banking system, causing them to consider Bitcoin's potential as a "bank in cyberspace run by incorruptible software." Despite suffering significant losses at one point, MicroStrategy has maintained its confidence in Bitcoin's potential and continues to accumulate more of the digital asset.
