Microstrategy's Michael Saylor expects billions to hold savings on phones with bitcoin

Appearing on CNBC this morning, Microstrategy (MSTR) CEO Michael Saylor is bothered not a bit by the shaky price action of the last couple of days.He notes that Bitcoin (BTC-USD) became a $1T digital monetary network in just a dozen years, way faster than other $1T-club members like Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google."We're going to see a day when 7B-8B people have a bar of digital gold on their phone, and they're using it to store their life savings ... The world needs this thing."Bitcoin this morning dipped as low as about $45K (from above $58K 48 hours earlier), but has bounced a bit since, now at $49K. Microstrategy is also off the lows, but down 16.3% on the session.Saylor's appearance on CNBC this morning comes following his company raising another $1B with which to buy bitcoin last week.
