MicroStrategy has acquired 105,084 bitcoin ($489 million), purchased from the proceeds of the sale of $500 million in senior debt notes last week.
The US intelligence firm added 13,000 Bitcoin to its treasury from $489 million raised from corporate bonds sale to investors, averaging a buy in price of $37,617.

The company’s most recent purchase is technically under water, which has been attributed to a reshuffling of Chinese miners due to recent crackdown by the regime.
Holding 105,000 BTC worth about $3.4 billion, MicroStrategy is the world’s biggest Bitcoin holder among publicly listed companies. In aggregate, MSTR’s purchase total at $26,080.
The MSTR stock can be considered a pseudo-Bitcoin ETF, with over 60% of its BTC purchases coming from the $2.1 trillion raised from stock convertible and debt notes. MSTR’s share price is effectively a proxy for Bitcoin’s performance.
Last week, the firm also announced a $1 billion stock sale to use the cash for its operations and BTC purchases, on top of the $500 million debt notes.
While potentially being the greatest Bitcoin ‘chad’ that ever lived, MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor has painted a massive bullseye on his head with the company’s average buy-in coming in at $26,080. On the upside, the debt will reach its settlement phase years from now.
