在八月, MicroStrategy took bold steps into crypto, making Bitcoin its primary reserve asset.

Just weeks ago, MicroStrategy announced a $400 million securities offering with the stated purpose of raising funds to buy more Bitcoin. As of Dec. 21, the firm had stockpiled 70,470 比特币.

At prices as of publication time, MicroStrategy’s BTC stockpile was worth over $2.8 十亿.

Institutional investors like Morgan Stanley have warmed up to crypto assets considerably over the past year. Many have attributed Bitcoin’s recent bull market to this institutional uptick, as compared to the retail FOMO that was so critical to BTC’s 2017 highs, which subsequently fell apart.
