MicroStrategy has redirected the Hope.com domain to its Bitcoin education resources.
In fact, when accessing the www.hope.com domain, the microstrategy.com/en/bitcoin website opens, where the company collects and publishes various resources to provide information and knowledge about Bitcoin.
A few months ago, the company made a real turning point in its policy regarding the assets to be held as a reserve, choosing bitcoin as its main asset from this point of view.
This choice was probably made not only for financial reasons but also for technical reasons. In fact, MicroStrategy clearly demonstrates that it has conducted in-depth research into this new technology, and the implications it could have beyond corporate finance.
A quote from their co-founder and CEO Michael Saylor appears on the page of this section on their website:
“Bitcoin is a swarm of cyber hornets serving the goddess of wisdom, feeding on the fire of truth, exponentially growing ever smarter, faster, and stronger behind a wall of encrypted energy”.
Moreover, the first resource suggested in the interviews section is a conversation that Saylor had with the famous crypto influencer Anthony Pompliano in mid-September, in which they talked about the reasons that led the company to buy BTC to be held as a store of value.
Microstrategy and education about Bitcoin
The announcement published on Twitter by Saylor himself about Hope.com says:
“In these challenging times, Bitcoin represents hope to billions of people in need of an instrument of economic empowerment. Accordingly, we have redirected the hope domain to the Bitcoin Education section of our website. Spread the word – Bitcoin is hope.com“.

Hope.com is a domain registered back in 1995 and belongs to MicroStrategy.
Until October 5th this year, it was not associated with an actual website, but simply displayed a page on the MicroStrategy website where it was available for purchase.
However, as of yesterday, it was associated with the Bitcoin education section of MicroStrategy’s website.
Furthermore, the company also owns the domains Wisdom.com, Strategy.com and Glory.com, and even Michael.com.
It is quite common for large companies with large capital to have registered domains of this type a long time ago at very cheap prices, for instance in the hope of reselling them at very high prices later on. It is therefore not surprising that MicroStrategy is the owner of Hope.com.
