Those who think that Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC) is going to double during the next year are probably going to be right, Fast Money trader Guy Adami said Friday on CNBC’s “Power Lunch.”
Guy Adami told CNBC that he has gotten to know Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy Incorporated (NASDAQ:MSTR) pretty well recently and that Saylor turned him into a Bitcoin believer.
“Can you imagine if over the next couple of months, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) says we are going to put 10% of our cash holdings into cryptocurrency,” Adami said.
What Happened: MicroStrategy made headlines after the company purchased Bitcoin multiple times in 2021. The company announced in its earnings report yesterday that it currently holds about 91,579 Bitcoins at an aggregate cost of about $2.23 billion.
“We will continue to acquire and hold additional bitcoin as we seek to create additional value for shareholders,” Saylor said.
Price Action: Bitcoin is up 96.62% year-to-date. At last check Friday, Bitcoin was up 6.07% at $56,837.90.
