The CEO of MicroStrategy has categorized Bitcoin (BTC) as an asset and not a commodity. According to Mr. Saylor, commodities such as grain, oil, beef, etc are abundant and should be traded. However, Bitcoin being an asset means that it should be owned and not traded. Furthermore, the scarcity of Bitcoin adds to its appeal as an ideal treasury reserve asset.
His comments were a message to the CEO of Hedgeye Risk Management, Keith McCullough, and can be found in the following tweet.
My message for @KeithMcCullough : #Bitcoin is an asset, not a commodity. Commodities are abundant and should be traded. Assets are scarce and should be owned. Pure monetary energy is the ideal treasury reserve asset, and for the first time in history, we can now own some. https://t.co/MG9dz5LFLF
