Japanese Firm Bolsters Bitcoin Holdings Amid Market Shifts

Japanese Firm Bolsters Bitcoin Holdings Amid Market Shifts

Often called the Asian version of MicroStrategy, Metaplanet has recently become more bullish about Bitcoin.

The company’s decision to buy $1.59 million worth of the digital currency has attracted many investors and sent its stock soaring.

In a filing dated June 11th, 2024 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Metaplanet purchased 23.351 BTC at an average price of $65,365 per coin meaning that now they hold $9.6 million in BTC.

This move comes following another announcement made on May 28th where the company said they were doubling down on their bet for Bitcoin.

By making Bitcoin a major part of its reserves strategy, Metaplanet wants to stand out among other financial technology (fintech) companies in Japan and make itself a leader in the adoption of cryptocurrencies.

Despite current market conditions which saw prices fall below $68k per 1BTC, this bold step by Metaplanet may take advantage of price swings so as to yield high profits over time.
