The company’s total bitcoin purchase now stands to more than $1 billion. Senior convertible notes are generally debt securities that can be converted into the shares of an issuer. In early December, the company held a $650 million convertible senior note sale to raise funds. The company used all the proceeds from the funds raised for its latest bitcoin purchase.
