MicroStrategy executives are looking for blockchain experts who could help the listed company build a suite of Bitcoin data services.
What exactly these services might be, when they would go live and how they would be monetized are still open questions. But in a conference call Nov. 16, chief executive Michael Saylor, who led MicroStrategy’s nine-digit bitcoin allocations this summer, told investors his company was eager to “capitalize” on its experience of business intelligence in the bitcoin data space.
“There is a whole burgeoning universe of intelligence opportunities around this kind of unique bitcoin intelligence coming out of the blockchain,” he said. “And we will explore everything.”
As first reported by The Block, the comments mark a potential expansion from one of the biggest participants in the current bitcoin bull run: from a pure bitcoin investor (and a knot runner) to a company also in the bitcoin industry.
To be sure, “we don’t have one thing yet that we’re sure it makes sense to market,” Saylor told investors.
But the company still makes probes available to new employees.
“We are actively seeking to find and recruit talented individuals who have blockchain expertise and who would like to join us on this journey,” said CTO Tim Lang.
