MicroStrategyspent roughly $489 million to purchase an additional 13,005 bitcoins, the company announced Monday.

MicroStrategy said Monday it spent roughly $489 million to purchase approximately 13,005 bitcoins for an average price of about $37,617 per coin. Bitcoin has fallen sharply in recent days and dropped 8% on Monday to $32,590.
The last time MicroStrategy announced a large bitcoin purchase was in February, when the company purchased approximately 19,452 bitcoins for about $1.026 billion in cash at an average price of $52,765 per bitcoin, inclusive of fees and expenses.
The recent dips in bitcoin haven't undermined Saylor's steadfast bullishness. Last week, MicroStrategy filed to sell as much as $1 billion in common shares in part to fund additional bitcoin purchases. The company also completed the sale of $500 million in high-yield senior secured notes, offered so it could buy more bitcoin.
Shares of MicroStrategy were down 7.65%, trading around $596, shortly after the opening bell on Monday.
