MicroStrategy Bitcoin holdings stand at $6.43 billion unrealized profit

As per data aggregated by Saylortracker, at current market prices of around $65,000, MicroStrategy’s position now commands a total valuation exceeding $12.57 billion.

This means the company sits on tremendous unrealized profits of almost $6.5 billion on paper – reflecting a gain of almost 104% yield-to-date from an investment allocation started under Saylor back in 2020.

As the prominent business leader consistently acquires additional coins, MicroStrategy continues to lower its cost basis while greatly expanding its exposure to Bitcoin in the process.
