When publicly traded software company MicroStrategy started buying Bitcoin in 2020, more companies were expected to follow suit. Tesla quickly followed, but after that it remained relatively quiet. Now that businesses and investors no doubt understand Bitcoin better than they did two years ago, the question is, what's holding them back?
MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor is an unwavering educator and inspiration for understanding Bitcoin's usefulness. He has already hosted two well-attended online conferences Bitcoin for Corporations on behalf of his company. In a recent interview he discusses the question of what is still holding back institutions at the moment. He lists a series of reasons. If these barriers are removed in the coming years, we'll see more institutional interest, Saylor expects.
According to Michael Saylor, this series of behind-the-scenes processes will bring institutional adoption closer. We will hopefully be able to tick them off one after the other. Saylor probably has a good insight in these matters, as he has contact with many CEOs and CFOs. He knows their hesitations.

Bitcoin was born as an idea in 2008 when its whitepaper got published. Only a few months later, on January 3rd, 2009 the so-called Genesis block was mined and the Bitcoin network started working. Only 14 years later the United States and the world are facing a very similar situation to the one we saw between 2007 and 2009. Some banks acted irresponsibly and without a bailout, there might be a contagion effect that kicks in. Many people believed that bailouts are out of the question after the failure of Lehman Brothers.
