As reported, the company famous, famous for bitcoin in its budget, it would be flooded with orders, including the interest of a large number of hedge funds.
Not only that, MicroStrategy Inc. would also have increased the size of its Junk bond offering to fund the purchase of more Bitcoin . In practice, from the initial $ 400 million, the company confirmed yesterday alone that it had sold $ 500 million worth of notes and that they were the first of their kind in the high yield market.
In essence, the first corporate bonds with proceeds destined for the purchase of BTC issued by MicroStrategy, expect a yield slightly above 6%. Specifically, the report comments as follows:
“It sold the guaranteed notes at a yield of 6.125%, according to a person with knowledge of the subject, lower than the first discussions on prices of 6.25% -6.5%.”
Saylor’s focus on Bitcoin, including making it an official corporate strategy, has drawn the ire of critics. Certainly, the strategy of promoting this type of high-risk but also higher-yielding sell took place in a week when the trading range for BTC is $ 31,188 – $ 39,151.
