Metaplanet Shares Skyrocket 158% on Bitcoin Strategy

The stock rose 127% to 93 Japanese yen in just two days. This rally nearly pushed Metaplanet’s market cap to $1 billion. The exchange-enforced trading halts due to maximum daily price increase rules.

Metaplanet aims to bolster its bitcoin reserves to hedge against Japan’s economic challenges. These challenges include a high debt-to-GDP ratio and a depreciating yen. The company has accumulated 117.7 bitcoins, valued at $7.2 million. Since the Bitcoin strategy announcement, this has led to a 389% stock price increase.
