Square’s Users Can Route Stimulus Payments To BTC-Friendly Cash App
Square’s Cash App is allowing U.S. citizens and residents who don’t usually file a tax return to direct forthcoming government stimulus payments to the mobile payments application. Square’s Users Can Route Stimulus Payments To BTC-Friendly Cash App
The move comes after the company failed to convince the United States Treasury to let it distribute the stimulus funds to segments of the U.S. population.
Cash App Users Can Request Stimulus Payments To App
Within hours of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) green-lighting the distribution of stimulus funds to citizens who don’t file tax returns on April 10, Square users can accept payments issued under Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act directly into their Cash App balance.
A post on Square’s website explains that the app will provide “routing and account numbers that you can use to deposit your stimulus payment directly to your Cash App balance.”

On the same day, Square launched an online portal to make it easy for non-tax paying users to request payments to their Cash App account from the IRS. A similar portal will be rolled out on April 17 to also allow taxpayers to request that the payment is made to their Cash App balance.
At the end of March, executives representing Cash App and fellow digital payments platform, Venmo, engaged the U.S. Treasury to discuss how they can assist in disbursing the stimulus package.
Cash App reports increased Bitcoin engagement during March
Amid the global economic downturn, Square noticed an increase in engagement with Bitcoin (BTC) on its Cash App.
During an investor call on March 21, Square CFO Amrita Ahuja stated that “adoption and engagement of fractional equity investing in Bitcoin have accelerated in recent weeks” citing “recent market interest and volatility.”
BTC is increasingly becoming a cornerstone of Square’s revenues, with a shareholder letter published in late February announcing that half of the firm’s Q4 2019 revenue came from Cash App’s Bitcoin services.
Square Dollar Cost Averaging Lets Users Repeat Buy Bitcoin In Cash App
Bitcoin and stocks are now on the menu for Cash App users wanting to minimize the “impact of market swings,” the payment network says.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s Square now allows its users to buy Bitcoin (BTC) automatically in the latest push to boost uptake of the largest cryptocurrency.
Confirmed by Dorsey on Twitter on May 18, Square’s Cash App now supports automated BTC purchases at set time intervals.
Square Shielding BTC Buyers From “Market Swings”
Square already includes a Bitcoin wallet and has rolled out the feature, properly known as Auto Invest, to its stock purchases as well.
“You don’t need perfect timing if you’re thinking long-term,” the company’s website explains about the new feature.
Auto Invest lets you set it and forget it by dollar-cost averaging, which is an investing term for regularly buying small amounts over time. By spreading purchases out, you can minimize the impact of market swings.
New BTC Flows To Square
Dollar-cost averaging is a conspicuous move towards turning Cash App users — regular investors as opposed to large volume or even technically-minded ones — into Bitcoin-minded savers.
Using the DCA calculator from market resource dcaBTC, a $10 weekly buy for the last three years has produced around 65% profits — from $1,570 to $2,588 as of May 15.
Cryptocurrency usage has already mushroomed thanks to the wallet implementation and one-off buy functions. As Cointelegraph reported, the majority of Square’s $528 million Q1 revenues came from Bitcoin.
Together with investment giant Grayscale, Square consumed over half of all the BTC mined in the first quarter of the year.
Auto Invest currently allows an account holder to commit to daily, weekly, or monthly purchases, subject to a minimum amount of $10. The display page can also be switched to satoshis instead of BTC for easier navigation with smaller amounts.
Stripe Will Offer Bank Accounts, With Help From Goldman Sachs And Citi
But only for vendors, so retail users will have to wait.
Online payments giant and Cash App owner Stripe is stepping into a new realm of financial services for vendors.
Per a Wall Street Journal exclusive on Thursday, Stripe is looking to offer customers bank accounts and debit cards. However, these financial products will be limited to vendors and merchants for now.
The new initiative will also involve collaboration with banking giants Goldman Sachs and Citi, which is part of a broader push from both to incorporate online business services and new technologies.
In 2015, Stripe was an early payments platform to onboard Bitcoin (BTC) functionality, which it dropped three years later.
Last year, Stripe made headlines for seeing a valuation of $35 billion following a funding round.
Stripe Inc. is teaming up with banks including Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. to offer checking accounts and other business-banking services, the startup’s latest attempt to become the internet economy’s financial supermarket.
Stripe, which processes payments for millions of online businesses and e-commerce platforms, will soon give its customers the option of offering insured, interest-bearing bank accounts, debit cards and other cash-management services. These products aren’t meant for consumers. Rather, they are designed for the merchants and vendors that do business with Stripe’s customers.
Among the early adopters of Stripe’s new banking services is Shopify Inc., which, starting early next year, will offer Shopify Balance accounts to many of the hundreds of thousands of merchants that use its software.
Shopify Balance accounts will be held at Memphis, Tenn.-based Evolve Bancorp Inc., but Stripe is also partnering with Goldman in the U.S. and with Citigroup and Barclays PLC internationally to store and move customer funds.
Digital banks like Square Inc.’s Cash App and startup Chime Financial Inc. have recently earned big followings—and multibillion-dollar valuations—by providing consumers with alternatives to checking accounts. Stripe, on the other hand, is focused on automating business banking, specifically for platforms that themselves have existing ties to scores of other businesses.
A number of financial-technology companies offer banking and lending services alongside their signature products. Square, for example, offers commercial loans to users based in part on signals about creditworthiness gleaned from processing payments, a business that Stripe also entered last year.
For their part, banks have also looked to partnerships with tech companies as a more efficient way to gather deposits than mailed-out offers or branch traffic. Starting next year, Alphabet Inc.’s Google will allow users to open checking and savings accounts at Citigroup and other banks through the Google Pay app.
Coronavirus stay-at-home orders and shutdowns have boosted Stripe this year. More than 500,000 new businesses have signed up for Stripe services since March, and existing Stripe customers like Shopify and DoorDash Inc. experienced a surge of demand.
“If you are a Goldman Sachs or a Citi or one of these firms, you are watching the fact that new businesses live their lives online,” said John Collison, Stripe’s co-founder and president. “For the partner banks we’re working with, our intent for it is to be a shockingly effective customer-acquisition channel for them where they end up with many, many more customers.”
Square’s Cash App Now Lets Customers Get Bitcoin Back On Purchases
Cash App, the cash-transferal app of payments giant Square, is now allowing customers to get bitcoin back on every transaction.
* Previously, Cash App had only allowed clients to get U.S. currency back on transactions.
* In November, in the company’s Q3 earnings report Square said Cash App generated $1.63 billion of bitcoin (BTC, -5.26%) revenue, up 11 times from the year-ago period.
* The move is another sign of the growing mainstream acceptance of bitcoin and the increasing importance of the leading cryptocurrency to Cash App and to its parent.
* It’s also likely a move to stay a step ahead of rival PayPal, which recently dove head first into the cryptocurrency arena.
* Cash App’s upgrade is the latest in a continuing trend of bitcoin-back rewards product offerings, after cryptocurrency lending firm BlockFi announced its partnership with Visa to launch a bitcoin-back credit card in early 2021, per CoinDesk’s prior reporting.
Square’s Cash App Briefly Halts Buying AMC And Nokia Stock
“This was not Cash App’s decision – we disagree with this move wholeheartedly,” tweeted the service.
Cash App, the Bitcoin-friendly mobile payments app from U.S. financial services firm Square, restricted buys from some of the stocks connected to the Wall Street shorts for more than four hours today.
According to an announcement from Cash App, its clearing broker, Axos, halted the app’s ability to complete purchases of stocks for Gamestop, AMC Entertainment, Nokia, and Koss Corporation — at least three of the stocks pushed by retail investors on the r/Wallstreetbets subreddit in their fight against hedge funds’ shorts. However, the app later tweeted that the broker has restored trading for AMC and Nokia.
Cash App initially said that it “wholeheartedly” disagreed with Axos’ actions and added it would attempt to allow users to purchase all the affected stocks “as soon as possible.”
The platform has not mentioned any change in the status of trading Gamestop and Koss Corporation stocks, but the price of GME fell under $100 for the first time in a week, reaching reaching $99.50 at the time of publication.
Though it appeared the Cash App was trying to distance itself from any possible allegations of market manipulation in the wake of the GameStop short sells, the restrictions on buys was similar to those imposed by other trading apps last week.
Robinhood announced on Jan. 28 that it had suspended buying for GameStop stock and others after many of the stocks surged. The trading app has since lowered these restrictions, but its users are still limited to buying one GME share as of yesterday.
Many on social media seemed to place the blame for restricting trading on Axos rather than Cash App, but still expressed their frustration after the parallels with Robinhood.
“Thank you for the transparency,” said Twitter user Phoenix Williams. “Robinhood was under the same situation but they chose to lie.”
Square founder and CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted a message to his 5.2 million followers in response to the trade restrictions essentially telling users to hold their assets amid the chaos in the market.
Square Announces Additional $170M Bitcoin Buy
Square And Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey
The payments giant announced in advance of its fourth-quarter earnings call Tuesday that it had purchased 3,318 more bitcoins.
Payments giant Square has added 3,318 bitcoins to its treasury.
The company announced in advance of its fourth-quarter earnings call that it had added to the 4,709 bitcoins it purchased in October 2020, which were worth $50 million at the time. Currently, that investment is worth $224 million and the company’s total value of BTC (-12.25%) on Square’s balance sheet is $394 million.
Square’s $297M Stake In Tidal Could Unlock DLT Features, Analyst Says
Square’s majority stake in Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal will potentially help artists grow their fan bases using blockchain technology, a Gartner analyst said.
Square’s majority stake in Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal could potentially result in some blockchain-related functionalities on the platform, according to one analyst.
Avivah Litan, a technology analyst at consulting company Gartner, suggested that Square’s $297 million investment could push Tidal to start taking advantage of new technologies like blockchain and cryptocurrencies, Reuters reports Friday.
With Square’s help, Tidal would specifically benefit from the technology of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, which allows artists to certify ownership for photos, videos and other digital content, the expert noted. NFT technology could easily track the provenance of autographs and memorabilia, potentially making them even more valuable for fans, Litan said.
Square officially announced that the company entered into an agreement to acquire a majority ownership stake in Tidal on Thursday, claiming that Tidal will continue operating independently within Square, alongside its Seller and Cash App ecosystems.
CEO Jack Dorsey subsequently hinted that Square will focus on the critical needs of artists and growing their fan bases in a similar way that the firm has been doing for Cash App clients, stating:
“Square created ecosystems of tools for sellers & individuals, and we’ll do the same for artists. We’ll work on entirely new listening experiences to bring fans closer together, simple integrations for merch sales, modern collaboration tools, and new complementary revenue streams.”
Square did not immediately respond to Cointelegraph’s request for comment.
Available in 56 countries, Tidal is an entertainment platform owned by some of the world’s most famous celebrities like Kanye West, Beyoncé, Madonna, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. The platform has sought to distinguish itself from other popular streaming platforms like Spotify by committing to providing sound quality to listeners and a greater share of revenue to artists. Jay-Z bought Tidal for about $56 million in 2015 from Norwegian entrepreneurs.
Square CFO Says There’s ‘Absolutely A Case’ For All Balance Sheets To Have Bitcoin
Ahuja said her company sees bitcoin and cryptocurrency as “expanding access to financial services” particularly on a global scale.
The chief financial officer (CFO) of payments giant Square, Amrita Ahuja, believes more companies need to get on board with cryptocurrency.
In an interview with Fortune Magazine’s new CFO newsletter on Sunday, Ahuja said her company sees bitcoin (BTC, +4.13%) and cryptocurrency in general as “expanding access to financial services” particularly on a global scale.
“There’s absolutely a case for every balance sheet to have bitcoin on it,” said Ahuja in relation to user adoption and an emerging trend by large firms to pick up the nascent asset class.
Square is the company behind the peer-to-peer payments platform Cash App, which allows users to purchase cryptocurrency and store them in a digital wallet. The company has made multiple bitcoin purchases over the last six months – a move that has continued to pay off, according to earnings estimates.
“The investment that we made on our balance sheet for bitcoin represents about 5% of our cash,” said Ahuja. “We intend to hold for the long term here.” The CFO also said Square would assess its strategy on an ongoing basis based on how “the bitcoin ecosystem evolves,” according to the report.
Square Adds Bitcoin Policy Lead From US Chamber of Commerce
Julie Stitzel was at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness prior to joining Square.
Julie Stitzel, the former vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness, has joined payments startup Square as a bitcoin policy expert.
Stitzel started Monday as the bitcoin policy lead at Square’s Cash App, a spokesperson said Tuesday. She was previously part of the U.S. Chamber’s Technology Engagement Center, where she represented the trade organization before Congress, and senior manager for federal advocacy and policy at Etsy.
“Julie will advise teams within Cash App on the evolving bitcoin policy sphere, will help Square advance our strategic and long-term thinking on crypto issues and will help drive education and engagement with outside parties who work in this space,” the Square spokesperson said via email.
Square, one of the two companies founded and led by Twitter creator Jack Dorsey, has been getting more involved with the bitcoin sector over the past few years. Its Cash App payments app allows users to buy or sell bitcoin, and the company recently produced a report claiming that increased bitcoin mining might incentivize the use of renewable energy sources.
Square itself has a substantial amount of bitcoin on its balance sheet, having bought over 8,000 BTC between last October and this past February. As of press time, Square’s bitcoin holdings are worth a little over $441 million.
