MicroStrategy announced its first Bitcoin purchase back in August 2020 and has consistently added to its BTC position. CEO Saylor also became a crypto enthusiast at that time, encouraging other firms to do the same.
The firm has acquired so much BTC after it sold off its class A common stock in Jeffries, an ATM facility. Recently, MicroStrategy sold an aggregate of 238,054 shares of the ATM facility to fund its Bitcoin investment.
No public company globally has more BTC than the firm. It has positioned its firm as a leader in the Bitcoin space by advocating for and helping other firms, such as Tesla, to convert their balance sheets from dollars to Bitcoin.
Ultimately, the firm continues to lead Bitcoin investment among companies as it does not partake in any Bitcoin lending or invest in any other cryptocurrency.
It’s sole strategy is to buy Bitcoin with cash and hold it till infinity. During an interview with Ray Dalio, Saylor said the firm would never sell any of its Bitcoin but hold it for the next 100 years.
