In the most recent filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the public business MicroStrategy Inc., which has the largest amount of Bitcoin, disclosed its cryptocurrency holdings. In spite of the recent drop in price, the software business has reportedly continued to increase the amount of bitcoin in its reserve.
Between August 2, 2022 and September 19, 2022, Microstrategy disclosed that it had acquired about 301 Bitcoins during the course of the period. All of the transactions were conducted using cash alone. The Bitcoins were acquired for a total cost of $6 million, with an average price of around $19,851 per token.
The document discloses that Microstrategy purchased Bitcoins using surplus funds that company had available. Despite this, MSTR and its subsidiaries together have close to 130,000 BTC at this time.
According to the report, the cumulative purchase cost of Bitcoin holdings is around $3.98 billion at the present time. On the other hand, the typical cost of purchasing one bitcoin is now $30,639 USD. This total, which has been made public, considers all of the fees and costs.
Earlier, MSTR file that the SEC had received showed that the company intends to sell $500 million in equities in order to purchase additional BTC. The price of bitcoin was eventually driven upward as a result of this piece of news, gaining some momentum in the near term.
Even though Bitcoin maximalist Michael Saylor stepped down as CEO of the software firm, the company remains committed to its acquisition strategy for bitcoin. Saylor maintains his position as head of the board of directors at this time. He is continuing to concentrate on the BTC plan he developed.
