Despite officially entering the crypto market in 2020, the company has made a series of moves to buy BTC in large quantities. On August 11, 2020, MicroStrategy confirmed it had purchased 21,454 BTC for $250 million. At this point, the average value of each BTC bought is about $11.6k.

With the price of Bitcoin at $4,500 (as of May 18), the business has doubled since it started investing in the crypto market, according to data from Coinbase. Of course, this number certainly does not stop in the near future.
