In February, the company issued more than $1 billion in debt securities and reinvested the funds raised in cryptocurrency.

In June, the organization invested another $489 million in the first cryptocurrency, buying 13,005 BTC, an additional $177 million in August, and purchased another 5,050 BTC in September.
Nasdaq-listed enterprise mobile software developer Phunware followed MicroStrategy's example. In November, the company announced an additional purchase of 398 BTC worth ~$23.8 million.
