Business intelligence firm MicroStrategy is gearing up to make an additional purchase of $1.03 billion worth of Bitcoin.
In a new post on the company’s website, the publicly-traded firm announces that is wrapping up its offering of convertible notes in an effort to acquire more funds to buy Bitcoin.
