Facebook hasn’t announced a massive Bitcoin purchase that many were expecting during its earnings call.
As reported by U.Today, multiple Twitter accounts started posting about the social media giant possibly holding BTC on its balance sheet. The unconfirmed rumor even made it to Fox Business on Apr. 28.
With a market cap of $876 billion, it would be the biggest company to add the top cryptocurrency to its balance sheet, potentially opening the door to broader corporate adoption.
In February, e-car maker Tesla became the first S&P 500 member to embrace Bitcoin, and other major companies were expected to follow suit.
Even though it steers clear of Bitcoin, for now, the social media behemoth is not new to crypto. Diem, which is the watered-down version of the shelved Libra stablecoin, will be reportedly piloted by the Facebook-backed Diem Association later this year.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg publicly expressed his interest in cryptocurrencies for the first time in January 2018.
