This is a big slash on the average price in the bitcoins they hold. As of their last purchase made just 5 days ago, the average of each BTC they held stood at $52,765.
The company has used many strategies in loading up on Bitcoin over the last few weeks. One of their most notable strategies was buying 600 million worth of bitcoins and selling them as convertible senior unsecured notes. These notes will mature on Feb 15, 2027.
Another interesting decision MicroStrategy took was about a week ago. The firm decided to buy $2,000 worth of BTC per second. Now, with the latest purchase, it seems the firm does not plan to hold back at all.
MicroStrategy’s Bitcoin buying spree kicked off in December 2020 with an initial $650 million BTC purchase.
The dedication by this company alone has contributed greatly to Bitcoin’s price value. At the moment, the price of Bitcoin stands at $48,055. While some expect Bitcoin to rally and set a new ATH, others are beginning to wonder if the altseason has arrived.
