Chinese crypto journalist Colin Wu and Chinese blockchain news outlet 8BTC have posted Twitter threads about Meitu—the Chinese tech company that acquired Bitcoin and Ethereum earlier this year and put crypto on its balance sheet.

It was the first public company in China to invest in BTC and ETH.

Meitu buys Bitcoin and Ethereum

Meitu's investment has shown an over 40 percent rise in Bitcoin and Ethereum after dropping by June 30 due to the major correction of the crypto market.

In March, Meitu bought the flagship cryptocurrency Bitcoin and the second most popular crypto, Ethereum, using its cash reserves. The board of the company agreed to buy up to $100 worth of crypto to put it on the balance sheet.

Meitu runs a popular photo-editing app with a 456 million user base.

Meitu loses 17 million RMB on crypto but then sees 40% rise

Now, Colin Wu has tweeted that by June 30 (according to the semi-annual earnings report), the worth of their crypto investments shrunk by a total of 17 million yuan.

In early March, Bitcoin was trading in the $49,500 range and Ethereum was changing hands at approximately $2,400 per coin.

By June 30, as a result of a substantial correction of the market, Bitcoin dropped to the $35,000 level and the price of Ethereum decreased slightly to the $2,238 zone.

According to Wu's tweet, the total amount of losses on Meitu's crypto investments by June 30 was 17 million yuan.

8BTC cites the Meitu report, stating that on June 30, the fair value of Meitu's Bitcoin investments was $65 million, and they held $32.2 million worth of Ethereum.

By now, the worth of the tech company's crypto investment has soared 40 percent.
