Business intelligence software company MicroStrategy, the largest corporate holder of Bitcoin (BTC), has announced plans to raise $500 million specifically for Bitcoin acquisitions. This move highlights the company’s continued commitment to increasing its Bitcoin holdings as part of its broader investment strategy. 

MicroStrategy Committed to Expand its BTC Portfolio

The $500 million will be raised by issuing senior secured notes, a common method for companies seeking substantial capital. These notes will be offered to qualified institutional buyers, providing MicroStrategy with the funds necessary to further invest in Bitcoin. Notably, this strategy aligns with Saylor’s firm belief in Bitcoin’s potential as a long-term store of value and a hedge against inflation.

In addition to the funds raised from these secured notes, MicroStrategy also plans to utilize the revenue generated from a new stock sale to purchase additional Bitcoin. This dual approach of raising capital through debt and equity demonstrates MicroStrategy’s aggressive stance on expanding its Bitcoin portfolio.
