MicroStrategy, the Virginia-based enterprise software company, has eclipsed e-commerce giant Amazon in trading volume.  

According to Bloomberg senior ETF analyst Eric Balchunas, MicroStrategy’s trading volume soared to $8 billion, outpacing Amazon for the first time in its history. 

This surge is attributed to the broader enthusiasm in the equitized Bitcoin complex, which now sees over $20 billion in daily trading volume.

MicroStrategy’s latest offering 

Earlier today, MicroStrategy announced the pricing of its offering of $525 million in 0.875% convertible senior notes due 2031, an increase from the initially planned $500 million. 

This strategic financial maneuver is part of the company’s broader commitment to investing in Bitcoin. 

As reported by U.Today, it recently purchased an additional 12,000 Bitcoin for $821.7 million, funded primarily through convertible note sales. 

This latest acquisition brings MicroStrategy’s total Bitcoin holdings to approximately 205,000 tokens. 

Crypto market volatility 

Despite increasing institutional adoption, the cryptocurrency market remains highly volatile. 

Following a sharp decline in Bitcoin’s price to $65,848.20 earlier today, MicroStrategy and other cryptocurrency-related stocks, including Coinbase, experienced significant trading volatility. 

MicroStrategy’s stock has seen a dramatic increase since its pivot to Bitcoin, but the market’s unpredictability serves as a cautionary tale for investors.
