What is it: This shows bitcoin's ROI vs other potential inflation hedge assets.

Why it matters: As with the historical bitcoin price table, we see bitcoin's extreme outperformance vs other assets here as well. Bitcoin's relatively small size, plus fundamental properties, yield extreme outperformance when even relatively small funds-flows find their way to BTC.

MicroStrategy Announces Purchase of $10mm More in BTC


 

MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor announced the purchase of 314 BTC for $10.0mm this morning for their corporate treasury, bringing the company's total BTC holdings to ~70,784 BTC, worth about $2.3B (Jan 22 2021).


The SEC form 8k for the sale, dated Jan 22 2021, noted that the BTC was purchased at an average price of $31,808 suggesting MicroStrategy saw yesterday's BTC price drop (from ~$35,000 to briefly under $30,000) as an opportunity to add to their position.

tldr

  • MicroStrategy has converted the vast majority of their corporate treasury to bitcoin.
  • Additionally, the company recently issued a debt offering in order to purchase yet more BTC. The offering was over-subscribed.
  • MicroStrategy views holding BTC instead of other liquid instruments in their treasury as a prudent hedge against monetary debasement and inflation.
