The latest acquisition follows the company’s previous investment of 19.87 Bitcoin, valued at around 200 million Japanese yen, earlier this month.

On April 8, Metaplanet announced its intention to be the first publicly traded company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange to invest in Bitcoin. The firm allocated ¥1 billion (approximately $6.25 million at the time) for their initial purchase.

Similar to MicroStrategy, Metaplanet aims to accumulate more Bitcoin over time. MicroStrategy is well-known for its aggressive Bitcoin investment strategy, repeatedly buying large amounts of Bitcoin and holding them for the long term.
