Last month, Macrostrategy received a $205 million BTC-backed loan from Silvergate Bank to buy more bitcoin.

Microstrategy reported that Silvergate Bank “has given a $205 million term loan to Macrostrategy LLC under its Silvergate Exchange Network (SEN) Leverage program.”

“The interest-only term loan is secured by specific bitcoin maintained in Macrostrategy’s collateral account with a custodian mutually authorized by Macrostrategy and Silvergate” according to the company.

The company’s most recent BTC purchase prior to Tuesday was 660 bitcoins in February.

BTC has long been a favorite of Saylor’s. “I see signs of a lot more institutional adoption, increased adoption among macro and other hedge funds,” he stated during his company’s Q1 earnings call. We’re excited about the next wave of institutional adoption, which I believe will be fueled by people becoming more informed and aware of what digital property is.”
