The Denver-based data-analysis 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 side of that, we do accept it as payment.   

Palantir had its much-anticipated initial public offering last September. The company's stock is down over 9 percent in pre-market trading, with the Bitcoin news failing to save the day.            

Bitcoin is currently trading at $55,379 on the Bitstamp exchange.
