This brings MicroStrategy's total bitcoins to 70,784, valued at more than $ 2.28 billion at current prices.
The company's bitcoin bet has been an excellent move so far.

MicroStrategy made its first bitcoin purchase in August last year. At the time, company CEO Michael Saylor said that bitcoin investments are part of a new capital allocation strategy to maximize long-term shareholder value.
Later, in an interview with The Block, Saylor said that bitcoin is "the best money ever created". Saylor compared bitcoin to gold and the U.S. dollar and said that cryptocurrency is a superior asset to the company's treasury, as it has a real shortage in the digital world.
