This comes after the company acquired 16,130 BTC for $593.3 million in November.

In 2020, MicroStrategy made its first-ever Bitcoin purchase.

The company acquired 21,454 BTC for $250 million. According to a press release issued by the firm at the time, Bitcoin was seen as an effective hedge against inflation and had the potential to generate higher returns than other assets.

The CEO of MicroStrategy, Michael Saylor, explained that the investment was part of a new capital allocation strategy aimed at maximizing long-term shareholder value.

“This investment reflects our belief that Bitcoin, as the world’s most widely-adopted cryptocurrency, is a dependable store of value and an attractive investment asset with more long-term appreciation potential than holding cash.”

Saylor recently stated that Bitcoin will be the standout asset in the year to come. Here’s the video featured on X social media platform.
