MicroStrategy is one of the loudest crypto advocates listed on Wall Street. Nu, the Michael Saylor-led company is engaging in one of the first-ever corporate bond sales that specifically earmarks the proceeds for Bitcoin purchases.

MicroStrategy’s Strategy? Buy The Dip

Saylor and team elected to up that amount to $500M with Tuesday’s junk bond sale. These type of bonds generally offer more aggressive yields, while running a higher risk of default.

The news comes after a bevy of Bitcoin purchases throughout this first half of the year. To start the year, MicroStrategy locked in 20,000 BTC with a hefty price tag in excess of $1B. The company grabbed a few hundred more in recent weeks at around $55K per Munt

Corporate Bonds Garnering Some Attention

This isn’t MicroStrategy’s first “first”. The company was also one of the first to pay their board of directors in Bitcoin, and Saylor was led the firm to be the first to have a modified corporate strategy integrating Bitcoin. Saylor’s hyper-fixation on Bitcoin in particular has drawn a fair share of critics, but all that aside, MicroStrategy’s business intelligence products are still seeing success with substantial Fortune 500 customers in their wheelhouse.

This week’s bond offering is also notable not just for being the first of it’s kind, but also from the response it drew. The company upped their offering to $500M in notes, but received in excess of $1.5B in orders for the offering – including a large number of hedge funds, volgens rapporten. Despite the recent Bitcoin dip, many major investors still seem to be chomping at the bit. The weeks to come could be particularly telling around their aggressive perspective.
