Metaplanet spends an extra ¥400 million in Bitcoin


Metaplanet informed that it has increased its reserve by 42.47 Bitcoin, thereby increasing its total holding to more than 200 BTC.

Metaplanet disclosed a 20.20 BTC acquisition on July 1, the same day it changed its treasury management strategy, thereby increasing its Bitcoin reserve to 161.2677 BTC. The Japanese firm’s holdings rose to 203.734 BTC (~$11M) as a result of the recently announced ¥400 million (~$2.5M) investment in Bitcoin.

The company’s July 1 statement verified its transition from real estate and hotel administration to the accumulation of Bitcoin as reserve assets. Two subsequent statements, issued on July 1st and July 8th, verified that the firm’s total BTC holding had now exceeded 1.6 billion Yen.

Simon Gerovich, President of Metaplanet Inc., disclosed at the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders on June 28 that the organization was employing Bitcoin to “increase shareholder value.” The Japanese company subsequently issued a series of statements that announced its complete entry into the digital asset market, with a primary emphasis on Bitcoin.

The company confirmed that it was adhering to an industry trend by employing BTC as a reserve asset to withstand economic challenges in Japan. Metaplanet declared its intention to invest an initial 1 billion JPY in its innovative financial strategy, which has as its fundamental objective the integration of finance and innovation.

Investors and collaborators provided assistance to enable the Japanese organization to implement its ambitious digital asset strategy. Gerovich expressed his eagerness to guide the organization into the future of treasury assets. He also noted that the company was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange under the symbol 3350 and could now be transacted readily through major brokers such as Interactive Brokers.

Gerovich asserted that the most straightforward approach to “hedging against” a volatile, depreciating Yen was to purchase Bitcoin, a strategy that Metaplanet would implement in the future. The Bitcoin Conference confirmed on June 28 that Gerovich will be a conference speaker in Nashville from July 25-27 to discuss Metaplanet’s investment strategies.

Gerovich disclosed on July 1 that the election of five new directors to the Metaplanet Board was a component of the company’s broader strategy for crypto investments. The Japanese company’s statement on July 1 also underscored the 10:1 consolidation of the company’s shares, which are now 65 million, to be active on August 1.

The fourth agenda item is to elect five new directors who will help us take advantage of new possibilities, grow into related industries, increase our company’s worth, and strengthen our management team.”

The Japanese company also disclosed the launch of its new website, which it promised would provide valuable insights on the adoption of Bitcoin, as well as other resources related to economics and Bitcoin. On June 25, Metaplanet issued an additional statement that verified the company’s intention to establish a wholly-owned subsidiary in the British Virgin Islands as part of its international expansion strategies.
