Data analytics giant Palantir is considering adding Bitcoin to its balance sheet and now accepts BTC as a form of payment
Data mining company Palantir, which was co-founded by billionaire Peter Thiel, adopted Bitcoin as a means of payment based on data provided during its earnings call, CNBC reports.
The Denver-based data analytics giant is also considering adding the largest cryptocurrency to its balance sheet:
"Adding Bitcoin to our balance sheet is on the table. On the other hand, we accept it as payment ”.
Palantir had its long-awaited initial public offering last September. The company's shares were down more than 9 percent in pre-market trading, and the Bitcoin news didn't save the day.
Bitcoin is currently trading at $ 56,881 on the Bitstamp exchange.
