MicroStrategy, the largest publicly listed Bitcoin holding company in the world, plans to double down on its BTC purchases using proceeds from a $500 million sale of its stock.

According to a Friday filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Microstrategy contracted two global investment firms, BTIG and Cowen, as agents to help it sell its company shares for an aggregate price of up to $500 million. The filing further stated that in addition to the proceeds being used for “general corporate purposes,” MicroStrategy would allocate part of the money to purchasing more Bitcoin.

The latest filing comes less than two months since Michael Saylor stepped down as Microstrategy’s CEO. At the time, he had disclosed that he would be focussing more on the firm’s Bitcoin acquisition strategy and related advocacy initiatives. Since it started acquiring crypto in 2020 using money raised from stock and bond offerings, the Virginia Based business intelligence firm has accumulated more than 130,000 BTC valued at just over $2.7 billion.

However, following an over 70% drop in BTC price after tapping an all-time high of $68,900 in November, the company’s Bitcoin value was greatly affected. In the second quarter, MicroStrategy reported a loss of about $1 billion alongside a $917.8 million impairment charge tied to a decline in the value of its Bitcoin stash.

As ZyCrypto reported, the Bitcoin community was recently astounded by Michael Saylor being sued by the Washington DC attorney general for tax fraud. The suit claimed that Saylor evaded paying taxes on earnings with the help of MicroStrategy’s officials in the district since 2013. It also took aim at the businessman’s Bitcoin holdings which are estimated to be around 18,000 BTC based on an early 2021 disclosure. With the estimated damages from the suit running north of $100 million, the businessman may be forced to liquidate some of his BTC to meet costs, according to some experts.

Meanwhile, the crypto community has lauded Friday’s move, with many believing that the firm’s plan to continue purchasing the cryptocurrency could continue providing a boon for crypto prices.

On Friday, MicroStrategy’s shares surged over 12%, with Bitcoin adding roughly 11.56%, the most significant single-day gain since June. Other cryptocurrencies also grew, with Ethereum, Cardano, and Shiba Inu adding over 5% each while the global crypto market capitalization swelled past the $1.05 trillion mark.

One thought on “MicroStrategy To Purchase More Bitcoin From Proceeds Of A $500 Million Stock Sale

  1. Donate 15 bitcoins

    I will be rewarding up to 15 bitcoins to those who help me, if it's not a scam!

    In the beginning of this month I received an email with an access to an account in coincrow.net and ignored it, yesterday I remembered the account and tried to access and got it, it has an amount of 50.8719 BTC. I tried to withdraw to my Binance account and asked to test the network with 0.0004 BTC and to my surprise the deposit was successfully made.

    When trying to make the final withdrawal the following image appears: “savePro™ Activated: The requested withdrawal amount is lower than your portfolio minimum withdrawal settings. To help you save, you specified a minimum withdrawal limit of 50,912 BTC during creation of your portfolio. Ensure your withdrawal is greater/equal to the set amount. NOTE: This configuration cannot be disabled or adjusted after portfolio creation.” Therefore, a minimum deposit of 0.0401 BTC is required to make a withdrawal.

    Therefore, I would like to reward anyone who helps me with this deposit, with up to 15 BTC! Pay attention: 1. It can be an amazing opportunity, but it has high risk! 2. You can lose the amount deposited and get nothing in return, if it's a scam, but if it's not the reward is high! 3. If you are the only one to deposit 0.0401 you will get 15BTC, if it's 0.0201 you will get 7.5 BTC and if it's 0.0101 you will get 3.5 BTC, but if it's a scam you will get nothing and will not be refunded! Know the risks. 4. If you are interested send me an email [email protected] to talk about it. 5.
