A tweet was posted today on Twitter on behalf of MicroStrategy’s CEO announcing a new bitcoin purchase for $400 million.

Actually it is not the official profile of Michael Saylor, but the usual fake @Crypto_Bitlord profile pretending to be someone else, as already done a few days ago with Peter Schiff.

In fact the official Twitter profile of Michael Saylor is @michael_saylor, and also has the blue check mark next to the verified profile name.

Instead next to the name „Michael Saylor“ of the @Crypto_Bitlord profile the blue tick is not there.

Also, the short biography of @Crypto_Bitlord says that it is „all in“ on One Bitcoin a Day since 2012, while MicroStrategy is not all in on Bitcoin, and only started buying BTC in 2020. Additionally @Crypto_Bitlord is a trading profile that promotes a trading platform.

Instead, @michael_saylor’s short bio says that the founder, president and CEO of MicroStrategy, and he believes Bitcoin is a hope.

Therefore, the news that today MicroStrategy would buy more bitcoins by investing another $400 million is false.

The truth was reported a few days ago by Michael Saylor, who revealed that in recent days MicroStrategy has purchased about 2,574 BTC, investing another $50 million and buying them at an average price of about $19,427.

MicroStrategy, the $400 million is not about Bitcoin.

It should be noted, however, that yesterday Saylor also shared the news that MicroStrategy announced a private offer of its own for $400 million in convertible bonds.

In fact, the company intends to offer the market senior convertible bonds with a maturity of 2025, aimed in particular at institutional buyers qualified under Rule 144A under the Securities Act.

It will also grant them a purchase option, valid for a period of 13 days from the date the bonds are issued, for an additional total nominal amount of up to $60 million.

These bonds have nothing to do directly with the company’s bitcoin purchases, but it is possible that their launch on these days was chosen precisely to take advantage of the notoriety gained from the news about their BTC purchases.
