In an interview with Kitco, Michael Saylor, the former CEO of MicroStrategy, predicted that Bitcoin would demonetise gold. “Gold was metallic money for the 19th century,” he said while adding that gold will not be adopted as money in the 21st century.

He predicted that a spot-based Bitcoin exchange-trade fund might come in a year. He anticipates that the biggest cryptocurrency will develop into an asset of institutional investment grade that will be accepted by influential investors, lawmakers, and regulators.

Saylor claims that due to the volatile nature of the crypto market, conventional economists are sceptical about it.

“The volatility is the price you pay for the performance. If you can’t stomach the heat, you can’t be in the kitchen…I would rather win in a volatile fashion than lose slowly,” he said.

Saylor said that a “great deal of bad behaviour” has been flushed out while talking about broadening the aspects of the crypto market. There is still plenty of unregistered security, he mentioned.

According to a report by coinpedia, the CEO stepping down from his position was a shocking move as it came after the company lost around $1 billion on its Bitcoin bet amid the rapidly falling crypto prices.

Saylor has claimed that as an Executive Chairman would focus more on investing in the flagship cryptocurrency. In the interview, he claimed that it was “very clear” to shareholders that Phong Le, the new CEO, is the heir of the company now. “We don’t run the company based on Bitcoin volatility,” he added.
