The company repeatedly purchase more and more bitcoins throughout 2020 and 2021, turning itself into a Bitcoin Treasury company (Bitcoin-ETF). Investors who desire to have Bitcoin exposure but do not know how to buy Bitcoin simply purchase Microstrategy shares in the equity market and let Microstrategy handles the duties of purchasing and holding bitcoins. This concept is perfect for investors with no digital assets knowledge but want exposure in Bitcoin. Although bitcoin is a new asset class with trading volatilities, some investors give value to portfolio diversifications into many asset classes including digital assets.
