Bitcoin Drives Square’s Revenues Up
Square revealed that the second most-utilized account application on Google Play, Cash App, recorded $178 million in incomes from Bitcoin buys during the final quarter of 2019, the organization said in a letter to its investors.
The firm posted gross benefits of over $3 million, speaking to a half increment from the past two quarters.
BTC buys on the Cash App rose by 240% since Q4 2018, as indicated by information from Messari. During that time, just $52.4 million in income began from its Bitcoin administrations
Now, the company is projecting between $705 and $715 million in “transaction-based costs and Bitcoin costs” for Q1 2020.
Square’s involvement in the cryptocurrency industry is growing at a fast rate. In fact, the firm recently announced that it is building a development kit to make it easier for developers to deploy their applicators on top of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network.
Gartner analyst Avivah Litan believes that Square could position itself as one of the leading global Bitcoin payment processing companies now that it is penetrating some of the fastest-growing economies in Africa.
