Previously In an interview with CNBC MicroStrategy CEO, Michael Saylor defended $2.2 billion debt-financed bitcoin buys.
He told CNBC that he sees buying BTC right now as comparable to investing in Facebook in the social network’s early days.
“We’ve got $2.2 billion of debt and we pay about 1.5% interest, and we have a very long time horizon,” Saylor said on “Squawk on the Street.” “Our point of view is being a leveraged, bitcoin-long company is a good thing for our shareholders.
If you borrow billions of dollars at 1% interest and invest it in the next Big Tech digital network that you thought was going to be the dominant Amazon or Google or Facebook of money, why wouldn’t you?” Saylor said. “I mean, if I could borrow $1 billion and buy Facebook a decade ago for 1% interest, I think I would’ve done quite well.”
