bookmark_borderMore Bitcoin! Michael Saylor’s MicroStrategy just keeps buying BTC

Michael Saylor announced MicroStrategy’s acquisition of another $15 million worth of Bitcoin as MicroStrategy continues to dollar-cost-average into BTC.

MicroStrategy’s Bitcoin buying spree shows no signs of slowing after CEO Michael Saylor announced the purchase of another 328 Bitcoin (BTC) on Monday. The acquisition, which was paid for in cash, cost the firm around $15 million and equated to an average coin price of $45,710 at the time of purchase.

The investment takes MicroStrategy’s total Bitcoin holdings to 90,859 coins — a haul worth $4.3 billion based on the current price. The firm has essentially dollar-cost-averaged into Bitcoin over the course of the past five months, leaving the average price of each of its Bitcoin purchases at $24,063 per coin. Saylor tweeted on Monday:

MicroStrategy has purchased an additional ~328 bitcoins for ~$15.0 million in cash at an average price of ~$45,710 per #bitcoin. As of 3/1/2021, we #hodl ~90,859 bitcoins acquired for ~$2.186 billion at an average price of ~$24,063 per bitcoin. $MSTR

The firm first acquired Bitcoin in August 2020 when it made an initial $250 million outlay on 21,454 coins. MicroStrategy continued to buy more BTC at various points toward the end of 2020, eventually accumulating over 70,000 coins by the turn of the year.

In February, the business intelligence firm announced that it would raise an additional $900 million for further Bitcoin purchases — a sum that eventually exceeded $1 billion when an additional 19,452 coins were purchased last Wednesday.

MicroStrategy’s total outlay on Bitcoin stands at $2.18 billion, while current coin prices would value the firm’s holdings at $4.3 billion, meaning the firm would have made over $2 billion in five months were it to sell. However, there is little reason to suggest this will happen any time soon. Saylor previously said buying Bitcoin was one of the firm’s two corporate goals, along with growing its analytics software business.

bookmark_borderTezos gets new oracle through Wolfram Blockchain Labs integration

Wolfram Blockchain has fully integrated Tezos, bringing data to and from the blockchain.

Wolfram Blockchain Labs, the cryptocurrency-centric division of popular computing engine provider Wolfram Alpha, is adding support for Tezos on its platform, providing a two-way interface with the blockchain.

Announced on Monday, the integration adds support for Tezos blockchain data within the Wolfram Language, which allows developers to obtain analytical data from the blockchain. The language specializes in advanced statistical queries that analyze smart contract activity, and the integration primarily aims to ease the deployment of smart contracts on Tezos.

In addition, Wolfram Blockchain has developed an oracle for Tezos that would supply its smart contracts with data available from Wolfram Alpha. The data also includes the pricing of assets, one of the primary use cases for oracles today. This would make Wolfram the third oracle provider on the network, following Chainlink and Harbinger, a Tezos-native solution.

Wolfram Blockchain collaborated with TQ Tezos, one of Tezos’ ecosystem development companies, for the integration. The company said that the oracle contracts were formally verified through the Mi-Cho-Coq framework developed by Nomadic Labs. Formal verification allows creating a mathematical proof guaranteeing that a certain program behaves correctly. Tezos is specifically focusing on making this process easier, sharing the focus with Cardano, another project supported by Wolfram Blockchain.

Recently, Tezos has made a number of moves aimed at attracting smart contract developers and decentralized finance projects. In November 2020, a network upgrade reduced transaction fees by 75%.

The Wolfram integration adds an important component to a smart contract developer’s toolkit, simplifying analytics for smart contracts. Still, the integration remains in its early stages and has a relatively basic set of features. The CEO of Wolfram Blockchain, Jon Woodard, said:

“We have plans to extend these capabilities in several key areas within the Tezos ecosystem: analytics, computational facts delivery and blockchain educational information.”

Wolfram Blockchain Labs is also exploring the possibility of becoming a Tezos “Baker,” its term for stakers. The blockchain is one of the largest by amount of capital locked in staking.
