MicroStrategy, the largest corporate Bitcoin holder, boosted its holdings, buying 14,620 BTC at an average price of $42,620 between November 30 and December 26. This purchase brings their total to 189,150 BTC, valued at over $8 billion at current prices.

Michael Saylor, founder of MicroStrategy, announced the move in an X post on Wednesday, saying:

MicroStrategy now controls approximately 1% of the circulating Bitcoin supply. With Bitcoin currently trading at around $43,000, the company’s unrealized gains exceed $2 billion.

MicroStrategy has been a leading Bitcoin advocate. In an interview with Bloomberg, Saylor stated that recent Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement actions could pave the way for Bitcoin’s dominance in the market. He added that Bitcoin stands apart from other cryptocurrencies, notably because SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has not classified it as a security.

The purchase came ahead of the upcoming decision on spot Bitcoin ETFs. So far, Bloomberg ETF analysts have remained optimistic about the SEC’s decision on spot Bitcoin ETFs, placing a 90% chance of approval by January 10.
