Notably, Metaplanet had informed investors of its decision to embrace Bitcoin. In a bid to ensure proper management and enhance its strategies in Bitcoin acquisition, Metaplanet recently established a wholly-owned subsidiary in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

The decision to hedge its funds with the digital asset according to information on Metaplanet’s website, follows the shift in investment dynamics post-COVID. Metaplanet, often dubbed the “MicroStrategy of Japan” seems to be adopting the playbook of the Michael Saylor-led company.
