Here’s what we got for you today:

  • Healthcare company goes big on Bitcoin 💰

  • Chart of the day: Weekly crypto fund flows 📊

  • PayPal USD now available on Solana 🍪



Semler Scientific ($SMLR), a NASDAQ-listed healthcare company, just went full crypto and decided to stash most of their cash in Bitcoin! 

Forget gold; they believe Bitcoin is the ultimate long-term store of value and the best way to dodge inflation.

Yesterday, they dropped the news that they bought 581 Bitcoin, worth a cool $40 million. The market went bananas! 🍌

A few weeks ago, Semler Scientific disclosed holding $62.9M in cash, which means a whopping 63.6% of their treasury is in $BTC.

We've seen this trend take off since Tesla started allocating part of its treasury to Bitcoin back in 2021.  🛫

The Milk Man can’t help but wonder, what if the biggest 5 companies allocated just 1% of their treasury to $BTC? 

Let's do some quick napkin math:

  • Let's take Apple, Amazon, Meta, Google and Microsoft

  • If we add up all the Cash & Cash Equivalents + Long-Term Investments like stocks, bonds, and real estate, these companies hold about $639.2 billion. (Talk about big bucks!)

  • Now, if they all decided to allocate a very conservative 1% to $BTC, that would be ~93,669 Bitcoin.

  • This would account for about 0.47% of the total circulating supply, without even considering the 6M Bitcoin that’s estimated to be lost for good.

Crazy, right… 

Well, want to hear something even crazier? Let's talk about Metaplanet, better known as Japan's MicroStrategy. 

Metaplanet Inc., a Japanese Bitcoin consulting firm, has seen its shares jump from 41 JPY to 90 JPY (Japanese Yen).

Right now, the company is sitting on 117.7 BTC, worth a cool ¥1.2B ($7.7M USD).

And on Tuesday, Metaplanet's board decided it was time for a little more action, so they announced they’ll be purchasing an extra ¥250M ($1.6M USD) worth of Bitcoin. 

Their stock went up 370% from the initial $BTC purchase, last month, to it’s recent high.

MetaPlanet is on a mission to scoop up Bitcoin like it's the last slice of pizza at a party. 

They've also announced plans to triple their number of authorized shares (aka selling new shares to the public) to accumulate even more $BTC, copying the strategy of American Bitcoin champ MicroStrategy.

Why is this working? The Japanese Yen is tanking, so Metaplanet's Bitcoin stash is a sweet hedge against the Yen's nosedive, with Bitcoin up 173% against the JPY in the past year and hitting new highs.

This is exactly what the Milk Man has been preaching all along: more institutions are adding $BTC to their treasuries, and this rocket ship is just taking off! 🚀

Even public companies from developing countries are joining the party. Take MercadoLibre, the e-commerce giant from Argentina—they've added 150 $BTC to their balance sheet

Why? Because they know that Bitcoin is an amazing shield against currency devaluation and inflation. 🛡️💸

For a deeper dive, catch our latest episode on Milk Road Radio — where we explore Semler Scientific's bold Bitcoin investment, Metaplanet's skyrocketing success and what this means for institutions in the long run.

We gave you a taste here, but the episode spills ALL the details in a snappy 20 minutes.

Hold onto your crypto bags, folks! Last week’s inflows of $1B were hotter than a jalapeño in a sauna. 

That’s the 3rd straight week of inflows! 🎉

Let’s dive into the numbers…

Here’s the scoop:

  • Bitcoin ($BTC): The king of crypto is still on its throne with a staggering $1.01 billion in inflows. After a sluggish April, Bitcoin is partying like it’s 2017 all over again.

  • Ethereum ($ETH): Our beloved $ETH saw inflows of $36 million, the highest since March! 

  • Regional Dominance: The US led the charge with a whopping $1.03 billion in inflows

  • Europe’s Contribution: Germany and Switzerland chipped in with inflows of $48 million and $30 million, respectively. Not too shabby for the lands of precision engineering and chocolate.

  • Asia’s Performance: Hong Kong, once the darling with $300 million in first-week Bitcoin ETF inflows, saw a $29 million outflow. Guess the honeymoon phase is over.

  • Other Action: Solana ($SOL) made a splash with $8 million in inflows. Seems like $SOL just isn’t quite ready for the limelight yet.

Looks like the crypto market is shaking off its Spring sorrows and gearing up for a sunny summer. With Bitcoin leading the pack and Ethereum showing signs of life, it’s an exciting time to be on top of crypto flows!

Will we see a 4th straight week of inflows this week?
