MicroStrategy reportedly amassed 5,445 Bitcoin between August 1 and September 24, as reported on their Form 8-K. It spent $147.3 million buying Bitcoin at an average price of $27,053 over this time.

However, MicroStrategy raised $147.3 million by selling 403,362 class A common stocks. This allowed the company to acquire Bitcoin. Class A ordinary shares of the company might fetch as much as $750 million, as announced by BeInCrypto on August 1.

According to the Sales Agreement that MicroStrategy signed on August 1, it can issue and sell up to $75 billion worth of its class A common stock through Cowen and Company, LLC, Canaccord Genuity LLC, and Berenberg Capital Markets LLC, who are acting as sales agents.

Despite the crypto cold, MicroStrategy has maintained its Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) tactics. The Bitcoin halving is approaching in less than a year, and the crypto industry expects it to spark a fresh bull run. And there are many who predict that within a year, everyone will be calling Saylor a genius.
