MicroStrategy, a leading data analytics platform, announced today that they have added more Bitcoin to their portfolio. The company stated that the acquisition of the additional 1,914 Bitcoins was this month between 9th to 29th.
Interestingly, these Bitcoins were bought in exchange for cash of approximately $94.2 million. These Bitcoins were bought at an average price of approximately $49,229 per coin. In an SEC filing, the platform said,
“As of December 29, 2021, the Company held approximately 124,391 bitcoins that were acquired at an aggregate purchase price of $3.75 billion and an average purchase price of approximately $30,159 per bitcoin, inclusive of fees and expenses.”
