MicroStrategy, Its Shares Sinking, Spends $10M to Buy Yet More Bitcoin
5 Mar, 2021•Bitcoin
Business intelligence firm MicroStrategy, which has essentially linked its fate to the performance of bitcoin, announced it has bought another $10 million of the largest cryptocurrency.
MicroStrategy said it bought about 205 BTC for $10 million in cash, at an average price of about $48,888. The company said that as of Friday it now holds about 91,064 BTC that were bought at a combined purchase price of $2,196 billion for an average per coin price of $24,119. While MicroStrategy's crypto investment is still about twice what it paid for it, BTC is more than $10,000 off its all-time high set last month. Microstrategy's shares have lost roughly half their value in that same time frame.
