Institutional investors have always been very impactful on the overall cryptocurrency ecosystem. They bring money from the traditional finance sector to the more innovative ones.

The new program from MicroStrategy focuses on selling convertible notes to institutional investors. According to their press release, MicroStrategy will:

“Offer, subject to market conditions and other factors, $400 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2025 (the “notes”) in a private offering to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). MicroStrategy also expects to grant to the initial purchasers of the notes an option to purchase, within a 13-day period beginning on, and including, the date on which the notes are first issued, up to an additional $60 million aggregate principal amount of the notes.”

The press release from MicroStrategy details the legal guidelines of note selling. But the most critical part is their plan for investing the raised money. As mentioned before, the investment company aims to buy Bitcoin with this money. It means the company execs believe a lot in Bitcoin’s future and are expecting a rise in the price.

Regardless of MicroStrategy’s investment result, these kinds of news are very favorable for the cryptocurrency movement. Traditional investors have always focused on other investments like gold, real estate, etc. Bitcoin is now considered a reliable investment, and it seems many business executives are becoming interested in that.

The latest note selling program by MicroStrategy can be a good opportunity for traditional institutional investors, too. Although the return on investment is always dependant on market conditions and other situations, the MicroStrategy roadmap is attractive for many investors. They can rely on the latest investments and returns – especially on Bitcoin – and expect a good return on their bonds.
