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.
