Michael Saylor dispels margin call alert

Michael Saylor has dismissed claims that his company was on the verge of facing a margin call on its Silvergate loan of $205.

MicroStrategy had used the loan to buy more BTC some few months back before the rumors started making rounds due to the crypto market downturn.

The ongoing market meltdown has not deterred the CEO and his company from buying the dip. He remains optimistic about BTC, which he claims will always remain to be the best investment ever.

Besides that, the company has gone ahead to assure the community that there is nothing to worry about a margin call. MicroStrategy assured the community that there are more Bitcoins in the reserve as long as the loan-to-value does not drop below the 50% level.
