Mercado Libre Has Invested $7.8 Million Into Bitcoin

Latin America’s leading online marketplace Mercado Libre has added $7.8 million in Bitcoin to its balance sheet.
According to an SEC filing published on May 5, the purchase was executed at some point in Q1 2021; however, the exact timing of the buy—and the price at which the firm acquired Bitcoin—are not detailed.

“As part of our treasury strategy this quarter we purchased $7.8 million in bitcoin, a digital asset that we are disclosing within our indefinite-lived intangible assets,” reads the filing.
Headquartered in Buenos Aires and incorporated in the US, Mercado Libre is listed on the Nasdaq under the ticker MELI. In its earnings report, the company says its net revenues for the first quarter were $1.4 billion, a year-over-year increase of 111.4%.
