MicroStrategy (MSTR) Falls 24%, and Risks a Potential 96% Crash as Bitcoin Remains in Free-fall

Over the last week, the price of Bitcoin has fallen by more than 20%, with the world’s largest crypto dropping to below $30k for the first time in 10 months. MicroStrategy, which holds a stash of 129,218 bitcoin (BTC), has seen its share prices plunge as a result.

MicroStrategy (MSTR) shares fell as much as 24% on Monday to their lowest level since 2020, as Bitcoin and the stock markets went into free-fall.

MicroStrategy Options Hedge Could Plunge by 96%

Although MSTR has recovered from its low of $208, recorded on Tuesday, to take its current price of $228.6 as of this writing, the company’s share prices could  further diminish if Bitcoin sinks further.

In anticipation of further losses, some traders have put options targeting a drop to $10 – representing an approximate 96% decline from its current share prices of around $228. However, there has thus far been little interest in MSTR stock for as low as $40, $20, or even $10.
