Smart software company MicroStrategy recently spent $191million on 4,167 bitcoins. The company has previously purchased a large amount of bitcoin as an investment and is very bullish on the future of bitcoin, even though it is now in a downward trend.

Besides that, many investors are making various predictions about the price trend of bitcoin. Many believe that the bitcoin price live will exceed $50,000 in the first half of 2022.
