MicroStrategy Bitcoin holdings stand at $4.65 billion unrealized profit

As per data aggregated by Saylortracker, at current market prices of around $55,840, MicroStrategy’s position now commands a total valuation exceeding $10.79 billion.

This means the company sits on tremendous unrealized profits of $4.65 billion on paper – reflecting a gain of almost 76% yield-to-date from an investment allocation started under Saylor back in 2020.
