In his previous interviews, Saylor had given signals that he would buy more Bitcoin. The famous software company made history as the first company on the Fortune 500 list to convert its US dollar funds into Bitcoin. CEO Michael Saylor, who was at the center of criticism during the market crash in May, stood by his decision by not going the way of selling.
