Nexon Snaps Up $100 Million Worth of Bitcoin
South Korea-based video game firm Nexon recently said that it had purchased $100 million worth of Bitcoin, paying on average $58,226 per coin. CEO Owen Mahoney noted that the move would protect shareholder value. He added that BTC offers long-term stability and liquidity too.
Our purchase of bitcoin reflects a disciplined strategy for protecting shareholder value and for maintaining the purchasing power of our cash assets. In the current economic environment, we believe bitcoin offers long-term stability and liquidity while maintaining the value of our cash for future investments.
In December, Nexon's market cap surpassed $30 billion due to increasing demand for gaming. The platform is currently the second-biggest game developer whose shares are trading in Japan, behind only Nintendo.
The $100 million purchase is the biggest cryptocurrency investment of any company listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange so far. It accounts for 2% of the company's cash pile. Earlier in April, Hong Kong-based beauty app Meitu also made another $10 million investment in crypto, bringing its total Bitcoin and Ethereum holdings to $100 million.
Bitcoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The buyers will need to overcome the $56,500 resistance barrier to prevent a drop. Breaking past this line will turn market sentiment positive and push BTC into the $60,000 zone.
