During its earnings call for the first quarter of 2021, Palantir said it was accepting Bitcoin payments and would consider the cryptocurrency as a reserve asset.
In addition, the firm is mulling following in Tesla’s and MicroStrategy’s footsteps by adding BTC to its balance sheet, saying the crypto asset was “definitely on the table. ” Palantir likely has more than $2 billion in cash on hand for investments.
The car manufacturer later sold 10% of its crypto holdings “to prove liquidity of Bitcoin as an alternative to holding cash on balance sheet. ”
In April, PayPal-owned payments platform Venmo introduced crypto trading for BTC, Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
