Another week, another announcement from Michael Saylor that Microstrategy has purchased more Bitcoin. Just like last week the announcement was followed by a sell off across crypto assets. Immediately, many were vocal on Twitter that Microstrategy owns “too much Bitcoin”. That if they keep buying more no one will want to use Bitcoin because it’s all held by one entity.
It is possible that this is just the natural adoption cycle of Bitcoin. If no one besides Microstrategy wants to buy it then the price will naturally go down. Then Microstrategy will become a forced seller and the price will get even cheaper. Once the price is cheaper and Microstrategy has been forced to sell this will create a buying opportunity and the pendulum will swing the other way.
Of course, this is just a hypothetical. There are still much more Bitcoins in circulation than what Microstrategy currently holds.
The price is currently near Microstrategies entry price of $29,800. It is likely the price will trade between this resistance and the 50 day moving average for the coming months unless there is an outside news event to push the price above or below these levels.
