“Bitcoin revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2020 increased by $240.6 million or 367%, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019. The increase was due to growth in the number of active bitcoin customers, as well as growth in customer demand.”

Square CEO Jack Dorsey described a few of the ways that the Cash App has found growth during the COVID-19 crisis.
Par exemple, by making it easy to do direct deposits into Cash App, the firm saw enormous growth, Dorsey said in Wednesday’s earnings call. Direct deposit users were more likely to use more of Cash’s other services, such as peer-to-peer payments and bitcoin purchsaes. Plus loin, Square collaborated with companies like Twitch and Spotify so fans could directly support their favorite creatives.
“We have reached a very mainstream influencer audience,” Dorsey said. “And because of the simplicity, because of how we handled the stimulus check and because of everything you can do within the app including buying stocks and bitcoin and Cash Card, we think we’ll benefit and draft off a lot of trust, a lot of love, for what it offers and what it can do. And word of mouth is definitely our friend here.”
