In 2021, the company purchased $425 million worth of Bitcoin and announced plans to use the Lightning Network to facilitate payments to its customers and employees. 

At the Bitcoin-only event organized by the company, it also announced new products it’s launching to help bring businesses and legacy institutions into the Bitcoin ecosystem and to use Lightning Network.

Speaking about legacy institutions and Bitcoin, there has been increased interest in the largest cryptocurrency, based on market capitalization, in the world. 

BlackRock, WisdomTree, Invesco, and Valkyrie are clamoring for Bitcoin ETFs. While HSBC was granted permission to offer bitcoin ETFs in June 2023.

The attention given to Bitcoin by these legacy organizations is seen as a possible driver for the next bull rull as the next Bitcoin halving is coming in less than one year’s time.
