The same story continues on. Michael Saylor’s MicroStrategy has purchased another ~$147.3mil worth of Bitcoin at an average price of $27,053. The MicroStrategy buys have been short term bearish for the past two years. This is mainly because when Michael Saylor first used MicroStrategy’s treasury to purchase Bitcoin the thesis was that other companies would quickly follow suit and also use their treasuries to purchase Bitcoin. This outcome has not come to fruition. The only other companies that have purchased Bitcoin are Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Tesla and both have since diversified back out of Bitcoin. Until some large competing entity shows up in the market, MicroStrategy purchases now tip the scale towards Bitcoin falling into an uninteresting, unusable state.
To be fair, MicroStrategy is very far away from owning the majority of Bitcoin in circulation, but the lack of any new large buyer creates negative sentiment in the market. However, on the other hand, were another major company to use its treasury to purchase Bitcoin this would create the opposite effect. Finally, another buyer! This would surely flip the sentiment in the market around Bitcoin.
In this mean time, the price continues to consolidate. For technical analysis please read last weeks newsletter (nothing has changed).
