Microstrategy executives stated they aren’t at all concerned about regulation in Washington. They noted that the regulations will impact crypto-exchanges, security tokens, and decentralized financing (defi), exchanges, and any other applications of cryptocurrency. In his opinion, “bitcoin is unstoppable as digital property.”
On Friday, Saylor tweeted, “Bitcoin offers better inflation protection than gold and is growing faster than big tech.” He believes that BTC “is the only property you can truly own, as well as the first technology capable of granting property rights to everyone on earth.” He emphasized, “In time, we will come to understand that it is concentrated energy in digital form and critical to the progression of our civilization.”
Microstrategy CEO, commenting on allegations that the Indian government might be trying to ban cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, stated:
Bitcoin can be described as digital property. In every country that permits citizens to possess private property, it will become a stock of value.
In contrast, Saylor explained that “A stablecoin is digital currency for use as a medium of exchange and will be issued by chartered banks.”
