Michael Saylor, executive chairman of MicroStrategy, also spoke to Cointelegraph during the Pacific Bitcoin conference on Nov. 10-11 regarding self-custody.

According to Saylor, self-custody does more than provide investors with property rights; it also protects the network and its participants from the corruption of powerful players.

“So self-custody is very valuable for this broad middle class, as it tends to create […] this power of checks and balances on every other actor in the system that causes them to be in continual competition to provide transparency and virtue,” he said.

Self-custody important role

Self-custody also increases decentralization, which is important for maintaining blockchain integrity and security, according to Saylor.

The decentralization of blockchain involves the transfer of control and decision-making from a centralized entity to a distributed network.

“If you can’t self-custody your coin, there’s no way to establish a decentralized network.”
