MicroStrategy’s new CEO, Phong Le, said at the Canaccord Genuity conference on Tuesday that he supports Michael Saylor’s decision to keep bitcoin in the company’s balance sheet. Before first purchasing Bitcoin in August 2020, MicroStrategy considered purchasing Treasurys, corporate bonds, gold, commodities, real estates, and even artworks. Le said the bitcoin strategy has boosted shares and trading volume and helped MicroStrategy make a transition from solely being a “sleepy software company.” The company now owns about 129,000 bitcoins, or nearly $3 billion worth at the current price of $23,000.

Bitcoin is up 7.02% over the last 24 hours and rose to an intraday high of $24,499.00.
