Microstrategy could hold up to 0.4% of all BTC soon as per the new reports that we have in our latest Bitcoin news. The crypto space was shocked with the latest info that the company could be purchasing even more stash of BTC or about $650 million worth of the asset, as we find out more in our latest BTC news.
If they purchase $650 million worth of BTC, Microstrategy could hold up to 0.4% of all BTC according to the analysis by Messari. The BTC space was rocked with the news last week that the company could be purchasing even more BTC. Microstrategy is an analytics company that is based in the US which has already purchased $450 million worth of BTC in the past few months as a hedge to its treasury and it even held a huge sum of cash that they decided to switch to crypto because of the unprecedented macro conditions.
While some think that the move was quite stupid, It now seems that it paid off quite well. the company’s stocks increased by 100% since its first BTC purchase and it seems that there’s a demand for even more BTC investments. The company revealed last week that it raised $650 million in the sale of debt to qualified buyers since with that capital and lower fees, Microstrategy decided to purchase BTC again:
“MicroStrategy estimates that the net proceeds from the sale of the notes will be approximately $634.9 million, after deducting the initial purchaser’s discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by MicroStrategy. MicroStrategy intends to invest the net proceeds from the sale of the notes in bitcoin in accordance with its Treasury Reserve Policy pending identification of working capital needs and other general corporate purposes.”
The analysis by Messari found that after the purchase, the company will own about 0.4% of all BTC in circulation. Ryan Watkins, the analyst, wrote:
“The above doesn’t even include MSTR’s just completed $650mm convertible note raise whose proceeds will be used to buy BTC. This will take MSTR’s total BTC holdings well over $1 billion. Depending on the price it pays, MSTR could end up owning 0.4% of the circulating BTC supply.”
While a bigger amount of BTC, the Winklevoss Twins will hold also about 0.4% of all circulating supply. Others think that investor Chamath Palihapitiya will own large portions of the crypto’s circulating supply. Many believe that Microstrategy allocation to BTC will make other companies to start allocating capital to space and to keep up with the pace.
