In the midst of these market movements, Michael Saylor, a prominent advocate for cryptocurrency, made a significant statement titled “Bitcoin Emerges.” The statement, characteristic of Saylor’s consistent support for the cryptocurrency, signals a notable moment in Bitcoin’s ongoing narrative.

MicroStrategy’s macro steps

In addition to Saylor’s announcement, MicroStrategy, the company headed by him, introduced a new development known as MicroStrategy Orange earlier this week. This open-source decentralized identity protocol utilizes Bitcoin’s Segregated Witness capabilities, enabling efficient storage of DID-related data with minimal size and content restrictions.

Regarding MicroStrategy’s Bitcoin holdings, the company revealed impressive figures in its latest earnings report. With 214,400 BTC valued at more than $7.5 billion, the company continues to assert its position as a major BTC holder.

Notably, the company boosted its holdings by acquiring an additional 122 BTC for $7.8 million in April, further strengthening its cryptocurrency reserves. Despite a 5% decline in revenue year-over-year, totaling $115 million, MicroStrategy remains focused in its Bitcoin-focused approach.
