Research of bitcointreasuries.org reveals that at least 42 organizations had injected small portions of their balance sheets into Bitcoin which has today soared for about 65 Billion Dollars. The trendsetter was suggested to be Microstrategy whose 250 Million Dollar Bitcoin investment set up the trend – a trend which later was followed by other companies.
For many, Bitcoin started off as a fashion wherein the majority of people bought Bitcoins without knowing that someday it would be worth something. A lot of them bought as their friends insisted upon them who told them that there is this evolution in fiat sector. However, over the years, fashion started to change its shape and, as of today, has turned into a trend.
It is also said that Bitcoin fashion transformed into a trend by the ongoing pandemic. This meant that that the trend is set up only in 2020 when the pandemic was at its peak.
For most of the companies of the world, bringing Bitcoins into their balance sheet is an adoption of this trend. It is widely believed that the trendsetter was the globally acclaimed tech company called Microstrategy.
The first pile of money Microstrategy put in Bitcoin was US$ 250 Million. Thereafter, a large number of companies, mostly in the US, started to bring Bitcoin within their business’s balance sheets. In the meantime, Bitcoin went on a rally wherein it continued to break several critical price barriers and is presently being bought at US$ 48,505.
However, the year 2020 brought a massive change for Bitcoin without any doubt. After Microstrategy, there were at least 29 companies in whose possession there were a total of 1.1 million Bitcoins approximately. When these companies bought these Bitcoins, the collective value of these 1.1 million Bitcoins was nothing against Bitcoin’s present value.
As of today, holding 1.1 Million Bitcoin would simply mean an amount of US$ 30 Billion approximately as of 28th December, 2020. It was reported that these 29 companies hold about 5.48% of Bitcoin’s supply.
