BIGtoken® Inc., the first privacy focused, opt-in data marketplace where people own and monetize their data, will host a webinar on Thursday, May 13, 2021 to discuss bitcoin and corporate treasuries.
On August 11, 2020, MicroStrategy announced that it had made bitcoin its primary treasury reserve asset and purchased $250 million of bitcoin to hold in its treasury, instead of cash. Since then, MicroStrategy has announced multiple additional purchases of bitcoin. Both MicroStrategy’s shares and the price of bitcoin have risen by more than 5X. More importantly, MicroStrategy has led the charge for other publicly traded companies to leverage bitcoin as a treasury asset. In addition to providing resources for corporate treasuries at Hope.com, MicroStrategy hosted a “Bitcoin for Corporations” conference in February that attracted over 8,000 attendees. Four days after the conference, Tesla announced it had purchased $1.5 billion of bitcoin for its treasury. There’s even a website, BitcoinTreasuries.Org that lists 35 publicly traded companies that hold bitcoin in their treasury. But that’s less than 1% of the investable stocks listed on U.S. markets, per the Wilshire Index.
So why don’t the other 99% of publicly traded companies own any bitcoin? What’s holding them back? What don’t they get? What other efforts are out there to educate companies about bitcoin? What’s the outlook for 2021 and beyond? And what impact will corporate treasuries have on the price of bitcoin?
Get those answers by joining BIGtoken CEO Lou Kerner, crypto evangelist Jay Gould, and experts Jeff Ramson and American HODL on May 13 for a discussion on the future of bitcoin and corporate treasuries.
