MicroStrategy Inc’s accumulation of Bitcoin (BTC) has solidified its status as the largest corporate owner of Bitcoin, having purchased an additional $414 million worth of the cryptocurrency during its recent dip.
The company has been purchasing Bitcoin since August 2020 and currently holds 121,044 BTC valued around $7 billion. Once the price of BTC bounces back from its decline, MicroStrategy’s money gains based on the average purchase price paid since the first acquisition are expected to grow by twofolds.
Following a tweet from MicroStrategy founder Michael Taylor about the purchase and while the price of BTC continues to rebound, MicroStrategy’s shares have surged by 4.5% to $693.
It’s very clear by looking at MicroStrategy’s valuation now versus when it initiated its Bitcoin acquisition strategy that the plan has worked.
