MicroStrategy’s $4 billion Bitcoin investment turns profitable

Michael Saylor's Bitcoin investment by MicroStrategy is now in profit as BTC jumped above $30,000 for the first time since June 2022.

Michael Saylor’s bet is starting to pay off. Despite all the criticism he had to face since early 2022, MicroStrategy’s $4 billion investment in Bitcoin has become profitable. 

Good news for MicroStrategy

Shares of MicroStrategy (MSTR) are up around 7%, following almost an 8% increase on Monday. The current upswing is boosted by Bitcoin’s jump above $30,000, showing a high correlation. 

Microstrategy’s stock chart, source:

MSTR stock is up 131% so far this year, outperforming Bitcoin, which is up around 85% in 2023. The company continues to accumulate Bitcoin although it already has a portfolio of approximately 140,000 bitcoins.

Bitcoin daily chart, source:

MicroStrategy purchased 6,455 BTC in late March and bought an additional 1,045 BTC in early April, with an average price of $29,803 per Bitcoin. With Bitcoin being $30,142 at the time of the writing, this makes their multi-billion dollar crypto investment profitable.

That means one out of every 151 bitcoins is owned by the firm, giving them a 0.66% stake in the total Bitcoin supply of 21 million. Michael Saylor, a former CEO of Microstrategy, is a vocal advocate for Bitcoin due to his belief that it is the safest and most trustworthy store of value currently available. 

The company has incorporated a dollar cost averaging (DCA) strategy to gain a better entry and avoid timing the market. The total value of the company’s investments is about $4.17 billion, but MicroStrategy is just up 1%. 

Final thoughts

If Bitcoin manages to return to the all-time high (ATH) level of $69,000, MicroStrategy will have an open profit of 133%, or more than $5.5 billion. That would mean their Bitcoin holdings would be worth close to $10 billion when Bitcoin reaches ATH.
