MicroStrategy dropped an important announcement about supporting the adoption of Bitcoin. As you probably know by now, the company has been buying Bitcoin like there’s no tomorrow and the buying spree continues.
The other day, the firm bought more than $1 billion worth of Bitcoin, and this was just a few days after another sale of convertible debt.
According to CNBC, the Virginia-based enterprise software company said it paid “an average price of $52,765 per bitcoin, including fees and other expenses. Its acquisition of approximately 19,452 bitcoins puts MicroStrategy’s total holdings of the digital token at 90,531.”
According to the same online publication, MicroStrategy revealed its first BTC purchase back in August 2020, using existing cash on its balance sheet to acquire the crypto.
“It has since completed two convertible debt offerings to raise capital to finance additional purchases. The most recent offering was completed last week, generating roughly $1.03 billion in net proceeds; the notes bear a 0% coupon rate,” the online publication notes.
MicroStrategy’s CEO Michael Saylor has been promoting Bitcoin via social media as well, and he’s also been praising Elon Musk’s moves of supporting adoption.
SpaceX explores Bitcoin investment

“We had people from SpaceX there. We had people [from] some of Elon Musk’s companies. We had people from Marathon there,” he said.
