Crypto Collapse Impact On MicroStrategy

Meanwhile, it is worth noting that the recent cryptocurrency market collapse also hurt Microstrategy stock. Notably, in the second quarter of 2022, MSTR recorded quarterly revenue of $122.1 million against expectations of $126 million.

The company also recorded almost a billion loss due to the market downtrend that started in May. Notably, about $918 million of the loss was attributed to its Bitcoin holdings. At the time of publication, MicroStrategy’s Bitcoin holdings are valued at almost $3 billion, against the acquisition value of about $4 billion.

Furthermore, MicroStrategy’s revenue fell 2.6% year-over-year to $122.07 million. As a result of the massive loss, Saylor announced his resignation as the firm’s CEO. Notably, Saylor will assume the role of an executive chairman, focusing more on the company’s Bitcoin acquisition strategy.     

“I believe that splitting the roles of Chairman and CEO will enable us to better pursue our two corporate strategies of acquiring and holding bitcoin and growing our enterprise analytics software business.”

Saylor said.
