MicroStrategy to buy another $1 billion of Bitcoin

“We intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of any class A common stock offered under this prospectus for general corporate purposes, including the acquisition of bitcoin, unless otherwise indicated in the applicable prospectus supplement.”

MicroStrategy currently has a market cap of just $6 billion on gross profits of $400 million a year, $80 million of it being net income.

They have 91,326 bitcoin in possession prior to this new $1.5 billion stock and bond offering, worth about $3.6 billion at the current price.

Tunisia to legalize Bitcoin after teen arrest

“I will change the law, we cannot put a Tunisian young man in prison for buying Bitcoin.”

Bitcoin is not banned in Tunisia, but the police there arrested a 17 year old gamer for making a bitcoin transaction, ostensibly confusing it with money laundering. Tunisian Mustapha Boufares, Founder of DFI Blockchain, says:

“This arrest was carried out not because of an offense committed, but only because of the total absence of law concerning the use of cryptocurrencies in Tunisia. This young man was arrested because the police accused him of money laundering, after having been unable to determine the exact origin of the funds.”
