MicroStrategy has now spent a total of $1.145 billion on buying Bitcoin, as part of its treasury investment policy. It now owns around $2.5 billion in Bitcoin.
In August, MicroStrategy announced the purchase of 21,454 Bitcoin, at a price of $250 million. The firm’s acquisitions are directly in line with its investment strategy, which describes Bitcoin as a superior asset class.
In December, the firm completed a $650 million raise in order to buy more Bitcoin, which it did. This marked its second big purchase.
Now it looks as though its making more, smaller purchases on an ongoing basis. On January 22, it dropped $10 million into Bitcoin, buying another 314 coins, before doing the same again today, although at a slightly higher rate.
MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor tweeted earlier today, “My formula for success is rise early, work late, and buy #bitcoin.” Looks like he wasn’t kidding.
