Micheal Saylor on Bitcoin - This is Unprecedented in the History of Wall Street.
In last week's report, I mentioned "The Biggest Bull Market in Crypto History is About to Happen" and this week, Micheal Saylor, the co-founder of Microstrategy, a company that owns 158,400 Bitcoins (acquired at a total cost of $4.69 billion) shared a similar sentiment.
Micheal Saylor goes on to say over the next 12 months,
...demand is going to increase, supply is going to contract and this is fairly unprecedented in the history of Wall Street.
During an interview on Thursday with CNBC, Saylor said his confidence in Bitcoin stems from the confluence of a number of Bitcoin-related events that are anticipated to take place over the next year.
This includes a once-every-four-year event, known as the Bitcoin Halving which will take place around April 2024 and will reduce Bitcoin mining rewards by 50%—substantially reducing the amount of Bitcoin entering the market.
According to Saylor...
“You’re going to see $12 billion of natural selling per year converted into $6 billion of natural selling a year—at the same time as things like spot Bitcoin ETFs increase the demand for Bitcoin,”
Combined with the institutional demand for spot Bitcoin ETFs, Saylor said:
“So that’s why all of us are fairly bullish over the next 12 months: demand’s going to increase, supply’s going to contract, and this is fairly unprecedented in the history of Wall Street.”
Saylor went on to further elaborate that as major financial institutions expand their investment in Bitcoin, centralized institutions will stabilize not only Bitcoin itself but will also further boost Bitcoin's price and the crypto industry as a whole.
The future outlook for the cryptocurrency market looks very bullish as we approach 2024.
In November 2021, Bitcoin reached its all-time high of $69,000, after the previous halving and we can expect to see a new all-time high after this Bitcoin halving.
Now is the best time to be getting into the market, before the upcoming run-up.

The network incentivizes miners to maintain data availability, offering a sustainable model for information preservation. Arweave's vision is akin to a collectively owned, "unforgetting hard drive" or a new-age "Library of Alexandria".

PancakeSwap uses an automated market maker system to facilitate trades, incentivizing liquidity providers with transaction fees and CAKE tokens.
