Its portfolio already spans banking, health, technology, wellness and art. Now Greenpro will use its subsidiary, exchange CryptoSX, to acquire bitcoin. CEO CK Lee said he's instructed Greenpro investment bankers to raise debt in Q1 up to $100 million for BTC investment, and also plans to invest Greenpro's cash in BTC. 

The firm's stock, GRNQ, saw a considerable bump after the announcement broke last night, moving from $1.38 to $2.39. It has since fallen to $1.68, according to TradingView.

Publicly traded IT company Microstrategy made similar moves in 2020, purchasing millions of BTC with funds raised through convertible debt.
