Virginia-based software firm MicroStrategy has added to it’s bitcoin holdings, revealing that it now holds a staggering 152,800 BTC, amounting to an investment of $4.53 billion. The NASDAQ-listed company made the announcement in their second-quarter financial results released Tuesday, adding that they intend to further increase their bitcoin holdings using proceeds from sales of common stock amounting to $750 million.

MicroStrategy (Nasdaq: MSTR) has demonstrated a strategic commitment to the asset. During Q2, the firm purchased an additional 12,800 bitcoins for $361.4 million, averaging a price of $28,233 per BTC. This announcement ups the firm’s total holdings to 152,800 bitcoins, acquired for an average price of $29,672 per BTC.

The software giant also unveiled plans to introduce Lightning Rewards, an enterprise platform aimed at incentivizing employees and customers by rewarding them with satoshis, or “sats”, (the smallest unit of bitcoin) for taking certain actions. Expected to launch in Q3, the platform underscores MicroStrategy’s broader agenda of integrating Bitcoin into its business operations.

Aiming to further grow its bitcoin reserves, MicroStrategy has moved towards implementing a plan to raise funds by selling shares of its class A common stock. As per the documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the company has entered a sales agreement with three undisclosed companies. The terms of the agreement stipulate that the companies will have the option to purchase MicroStrategy’s common stock, up to an aggregate offering price of $750 million.

MicroStrategy’s plans for the proceeds are clear: they will be put towards general corporate purposes, which, besides operational costs and potential debt repayment, most crucially include the acquisition of additional bitcoin. This initiative reflects the company’s bullish stance on bitcoin and its dedication to incorporating the asset into its financial management.

The new announcement showcases the company’s unwavering commitment to bitcoin and its readiness to play an integral role in the evolving intersection of digital currencies and mainstream corporate investments. The world watches as MicroStrategy blazes an unprecedented trail, bolstering its bitcoin portfolio and carving a path for other corporations to follow in the digital asset space.
