Our main discussion: MicroStrategy’s “Bitcoin for Corporations” event

Michael Saylor and MicroStrategy opened a new category of bitcoin investment last year when the company moved hundreds of millions of dollars of cash reserves into bitcoin.

For the next two days, the company is hosting a virtual conference designed to help the 1,400 corporate leader attendees discover the playbook that allowed them to make the dramatic move that has paid off so well.

In this episode, NLW examines the current state of institutional investment in crypto and asks what this event says about what might be coming next.
