On April 5, it became known that MicroStrategy, a company whose shares are traded on Wall Street, acquired an additional 253 bitcoins, paying an average of $ 59,339 for each of them.

Another important sign of large purchasesbitcoins was that at the beginning of the week, on April 5, bitcoins totaling $ 257 million were withdrawn from the American crypto exchange Gemini in just 10 minutes.
