MicroStrategy got a $205 million loan from a crypto lender called Silvergate Bank last month to buy more bitcoin. These new acquisitions come at the same time as that. The three-year term loan is backed by about $820 million worth of bitcoin, which is worth a lot.
Michael Saylor, the CEO of MicroStrategy, has been a big fan of bitcoin for a long time and has no plans to sell it at this time. He recently said that bitcoin is the only thing in the world that can't be made, and gold, real estate, and "everything else" that can be made didn't even come close.
He thinks bitcoin is "magical" because there are only 21 million tokens that can be made, unlike other assets that can be made as many times as people want to buy them.
MicroStrategy, a company that makes software for businesses, is one of a number of companies that are adding bitcoin to their balance sheets.
Heat up? Is the BTC Rally going to get better?
Bitcoin's rise has been helped by institutions buying bitcoin, which has helped push the market in the right direction. At the time of this writing, the price of bitcoin was $46,674.09.
Bitcoin prices rose 1.31 percent on the daily chart after MicroStrategy said it was going to buy it, which gave it a small boost. In March, the price of BTC reached $48,200, the highest level it has been at since 2022.
Some of the recent rise in the price of Bitcoin has been caused by big businesses buying it. The Terra community also bought BTC, which helped make BTC strong. At the start of April, the Terra community had bought 30,727 BTC in order to boost their stablecoin reserves even more.
During the short term, the king coin could see a big rise if institutions keep pushing people to buy BTC in the market
