Saylor, known for his bullish stance on Bitcoin, shared his thoughts on social media platform X.

He described volatility as "vitality," suggesting that the current price movements are a natural part of the market's dynamics.

This comment comes as Bitcoin's price dipped to $63,196 on Friday. Despite the recent downturn, Bitcoin has demonstrated significant growth over the year, with a 120% increase.

This brings the average cost of MicroStrategy’s total Bitcoin holdings to $35,160 per token, highlighting the company's long-term confidence in Bitcoin's value.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin was trading at $65,441.76, down by 3% in the last seven days.
