The recent Bitcoin price drops have provided an excellent opportunity for those with the means to purchase the digital asset at a discount. El Salvador, and MicroStrategy have both taken advantage of this price drop to grow their holdings.

MicroStrategy (the publicly traded company with the highest bitcoin balance) followed El Salvador’s footsteps. The company bought $414 million of BTC.
