MicroStrategy, the company which first announced last year it would be purchasing more than $250 million in Bitcoin (BTC), has gone on to acquire 105,085 BTC, more than $3.5 billion at the time of publication. Despite the news of a major investment into a company with massive crypto holdings, the price of BTC was seemingly unaffected. Bitcoin has risen 2% in the last 24 hours to reach $33,438.

Last month, the firm announced it intended to "raise $400 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes in private offering" to purchase more Bitcoin. Though MicroStrategy later increased the debt offering to $500 million and bought roughly $489 million in the crypto asset, its stock price briefly fell by more than 2%.
