It has been reported that Smith, in an interview with CNN’s Julia Chatterley, still hinted that Microsoft could still change its mind about a Bitcoin investment.
However, when asked whether Microsoft is discussing any cryptocurrency diversification plans after Tesla’s $1.5 billion investment in Bitcoin, Smith said that he is not aware of such discussions.
“I haven’t heard any new conversation about Bitcoin. But let me just say, if we change our investment policy on Bitcoin, Julia, you will be the first or at least the second to know.”
The report said that Bitcoin’s market capitalization is inching higher to overtake some of the largest American companies.
Thus, the Bitcoin market cap surpassed Tesla’s at around $808 billion shortly after the company announced its massive Bitcoin investment.
