In a conversation with The Block in May, Saylor pointed out that the near-term volatility of Bitcoin (BTC) is irrelevant to those who understand its fundamentals.
In the course of the conversation according to The Block, Saylor said MicroStrategy is far from facing a margin call as some people in the crypto space insinuated. He also dismissed the notion that the company would sell its Bitcoin holdings.
