Microstrategy, the cloud solution provider has announced another $400 million in senior secured notes to purchase additional Bitcoin. This would be the third security debt offering by the fortune 500 company that has invested over $2 billion in Bitcoin via direct cash purchases as well as credit raised from the sale of convertible security notes

Microstrategy is considered to be the pioneer of Fortune 500 companies buying bitcoin from their treasury cash. The software giant started buying Bitcoin towards the end of August 2020 and since then has raised over $1.5 billion in security offers to purchase bitcoin. The CEO of the firm Michael Saylor has maintained throughout that they have no plans of stopping and his company would continue buying Bitcoin.

The Fortune 500 company currently holds 92,079 BTC on its balance sheet with a net investment of $2.251 billion. Where most of the other publically listed companies have made a one-time investment and quite a few have even sold their holdings with humungous profits, MicroStrategy has continuously bought the top cryptocurrency over the past 10 months without showing any intention of selling, even when their profits more than doubled last month when BTC price hit an ATH of $64,683.

MicroStrategy is Currently at $1B in Profit

The current valuation of MicroStrategy’s 92,079 BTC holding stands at $3.37 billion giving them more than $1 billion in profits. The profits made by the company for simply holding BTC for 10 months have exceeded its profit from all their products combined.

The software giant was among the first to propagate the use of bitcoin as a treasury reserve amid depleting value of the US dollar. Saylor over the past year has become a big-time Bitcoin proponent himself who is credited for bringing Tesla to the Bitcoin bandwagon and many other publically listed companies. Saylor recently also revealed that entities under him hold a total of 110,000 BTC and none have sold.
