If you're simply looking to maximize your exposure to Bitcoin through the equity market, here are some candidates to consider since they all hold a significant amount of bitcoin on their balance sheets. Another factor to consider is the value of the bitcoin held in relation to the total value of all the shares in the company (market cap). The higher that number is (% BTC), the more influence the price of Bitcoin will have on the price of that stock.
