The top executives MicroStrategy are on the search for blockchain experts who might help the publicly traded firm build a set of bitcoin data services.
Exactly what those services could be, once they would come online and the way they might be monetized are still open questions. But within the 16th Nov., Chief Executive Michael Saylor, who spearheaded MicroStrategy’s nine-figure Bitcoin [BTC, +2.26%] allocations this summer, told investors his firm is keen to “leverage” its business intelligence experience within the bitcoin data ecosystem.
“There’s a complete exploding universe of intelligence opportunities all wrapped around this type of unique bitcoin intelligence coming off the blockchain,” he added. “And we’ll explore it all.”
As primarily reported by The Block, the comments mark a possible expansion by one among the only largest participants in bitcoin’s present bullish run: from pure bitcoin investor [and node runner] to a firm also within the business of bitcoin.
To be sure, “we don’t have anybody thing that we’re sure is sensible to commercialize yet,” Saylor added to investors. But the firm is putting feelers out for new hires nonetheless.
“We’re actively looking to source and recruit some talented folk that has expertise in the blockchain that might wish to join us on this journey,” added Chief Technology Officer Tim Lang.
