20:20MicroStrategy Board makes Bitcoin its primary reserve currency, may increase its holdings beyond $250M
MicroStrategy has outperformed Nasdaq since buying BTC. Now it's doubling down.
MicroStrategy’s board of directors elected to make Bitcoin (BTC) the company’s primary reserve asset. The SEC disclosure stated that this may lead to the future expansion of the company's cryptocurrency holdings beyond the original purchase of 21,454 BTC, equivalent to $250 million:
In the press release that accompanied the company’s original acquisition of Bitcoin, its CEO Michael J. Saylor was quoted saying:
The move has already caused a slew of copycats — smaller companies of every shape making similar announcements. It should be noted that MicroStrategy sold a domain to Block.One in 2019 for $30 million; perhaps, this gave the company's leadership an appreciation of the value of cryptocurrency. Some of the world's biggest institutional investors have a stake in the company. This may demonstrate how much more acceptable Bitcoin has become on Wall Street in the past few years.
Since making its original Bitcoin acquisition a month ago, MicroStrategy has outperformed the Nasdaq composite index.
