MicroStrategy Buys Additional Bitcoin For $10 Million USD

MicroStrategy Now Holds Over 92k Bitcoin in Reserve

On Tuesday, MicroStrategy purchased an additional 229 Bitcoin at an average value of $43,663 USD per coin, according to the tweet by the CEO, Michael Saylor.

Following this recent purchase, MicroStrategy currently holds 92,078 BTC in its reserve, remaining one of the largest corporate Bitcoin investors. Just last week, the company acquired 271 BTC for $15 million USD, at an average of $55,387 per Bitcoin. This follows Tesla’s announcement that it has suspended accepting Bitcoin payments for its vehicles over environmental concerns.

The massive correction in the price of Bitcoin, however, didn’t deter MicroStrategy from buying the dip. This goes to show how confident the company is regarding Bitcoin.
