MicroStrategy may explore ‘future yield generation opportunities’ on 95,643 BTC holdings

Business intelligence firm MicroStrategy said it will consider opportunities for yield generation on 95,643 “unencumbered” (BTC) held by its subsidiary MacroStrategy.

In MicroStrategy’s report for the first quarter of 2022 released on Tuesday, the firm said it “may conservatively explore future yield generation opportunities on unencumbered MacroStrategy bitcoins” as a consideration following a $205 million BTC-collateralized loan issued by Silvergate Bank in March. As of March 31, MicroStrategy held a total of 129,218 BTC, which the firm reported had a carrying value of roughly $2.9 billion, reflecting cumulative impairment losses of more than $1 billion and an aggregate cost of $4 billion.
