Michael Saylor, the CEO of the software giant and one of the biggest bitcoin proponent at present took to Twitter to announce the news, just days after people were discussing the delay in the company’s next bitcoin purchase.
MicroStrategy has made a series of Bitcoin investments starting from August last year which comprised direct cash purchases using treasury reserve and raising debt security equivalent to $1.65 billion in two fundraisers.
MicroStrategy Has Profited Over $3B on Bitcoin Investment
MicroStrategy is counted among early investors which is evident from their Bitcoin profit which has reached over $3 billion at bitcoin’s current price. The total valuation of MicroStrategy’s Bitcoin holding stands at $5.29 billion.
The idea to use Bitcoin as a treasury hedge asset was initiated by Michael Saylor who made the decision based on declining US Dollar value and the bond market. Saylor also advocated for other Fortune 500 companies to add Bitcoin to their list and even claim that his interaction with Elon Musk was the reason behind Tesla’s decision to make a $1.5 billion purchase.
