    MicroStrategy’s Bitcoin Strategy 

    MicroStrategy’s aggressive purchase of Bitcoin is in line with CEO Michael Saylor’s long-term belief in Bitcoin. Saylor holds Bitcoin as the ultimate exit strategy and ranks it as superior to other traditional assets. The company also prioritizes the management of its Bitcoin holdings, with 98% of its holdings entrusted to Fidelity Custody. Fidelity Custody is known for its robust approach to security. 

    MicroStrategy also utilizes the services of Coinbase Prime, using a dual custodial strategy to enhance the security of its crypto assets. 

    Bitcoin ETF Impact

    Michael Saylor is also unconcerned about the potential impact of the recently approved Bitcoin ETFs on MircoStrategy’s stock (MSTR). MicroStrategy’s stock gained an impressive 1.71% following the news of the company’s latest Bitcoin purchase. Additionally, the surge in the value of Bitcoin in 2023 and 2024 has also played a crucial role in MSTR’s impressive performance in the market. The stock has seen an increase of 39% over the past month and has reported an impressive increase of 316% since the beginning of 2023.
