Business intelligence company, MicroStrategy Executive Chairman Micheal Saylor announced that his company had purchased 301 BTC for about $6 million, each averaging $19,851. Holding 130,000 BTC as a crypto stockpile, the firm has thus become the only public company to own such a huge number of BTC.
US Securities and Exchange Commission filing further confirmed the purchase was made between August 2 and September 19.
Galaxy Digital Holdings competes with MicroStrategy as the second publicly listed company to hold such a high number of Bitcoin. As per their balance sheet, the company currently owns 40,000 BTC.
In the private sector, Mt Gox also holds a high number of BTC, around 141,686. However, in light of the Mt Gox bankruptcy trial, the trustees will reportedly distribute their assets to creditors.
In addition, another private company owning the highest number of BTC is Block.one. Bitcoin Treasury statistics reveal that Block.one currently holds approximately 140,000 BTC.
