Square Inc. is raking in profits thanks to the popularity of its mobile payment service. The firm’s Cash App Bitcoin (BTC) revenue for the second quarter rose by 600 percent compared to last year’s figure resulting in a corresponding meteoric rise in its gross profits.

On Tuesday, Square Inc. released its Q2 2020 performance revealing that its Bitcoin revenue has dramatically increased by 600 percent, Bitcoin.com reported. The firm managed to rake in $875 million in revue for the second quarter this year, which resulted in a jump of 711 percent of its Bitcoin gross profit for the same period. Compared to the second quarter result last year, Cash App’s gross profit rose by 167 percent and reached$281 million.

“Cash App generated $875 million of bitcoin revenue and $17 million of bitcoin gross profit during the second quarter of 2020, up 600% and 711% year over year, respectively,” Square wrote in the report.

Square’s s net Q2 2020 revenue, which includes Bitcoin revenue, increased by 64 percent year over year and reached $1.92 billion. Meanwhile, the firm’s gross profit rose to $597 million, up by 28 percent compared to last year’s figure.

“Customers increasingly used Cash App as a way to send and spend money,” Square’s report explained. “In June, Cash App had more than 30 million monthly transacting active customers, with more than 7 million spending on Cash Card,” The company added that “Bitcoin revenue and gross profit benefited from an increase in bitcoin actives and growth in customer demand.”

Square added that Cash App’s performance was boosted by the stimulus payments and unemployment benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which was signed into law by President Donald Trump in March. “We believe this uplift was partly driven by government stimulus programs,” the company wrote. The company noted that some of its customers “direct deposited these payments into their Cash App accounts.”

Meanwhile, Fool.com noted that there are three key factors that drove Cash App’s profits up. These are accelerating customer acquisition, improved product adoption, and increased frequency and volume. The publication wrote that Square added 6 million net new active Cash App accounts in the first six months of 2020.

I know about stolen Bitcoins a little too much and this is because I have been tricked into investing in a Bitcoin company that turned out to be a scam, so I had my bitcoins stolen.

The digital and virtual nature of the cryptocurrency makes it hard to trace hence it is a nightmare when you get swindled of your coins. Losing my 9 BTC to fraudsters last year was agonizing and tortuous as I did not know where to turn. I gave up hope, beat myself up for being dumb but about the evil nature of the criminal fraudsters. I was licking my figurative wounds with a lot of “what ifs”, wishing to turn back the hands of time when I stumbled upon ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM

To be fair, I did not take them seriously at first but I decided to give it a shot as I literally had nothing to lose at the point. Recovering lost cryptocurrency is near impossible but by reporting the situation to ASSETRESCUE01 @GMAILCOM , you give yourself a fighting chance at recovering what was lost. They have the technology to do the near impossible. You can simply send an email or WhatsApp on +1 206 745-0108

I never believed in bitcoin retrieval cos people around me told me it’s not possible. Sometimes last year I fell for a binary option scam which promised a higher return and I lost close to $90,000 worth of bitcoin, I felt so sad and devastated at the same time and lost all hope. Few months ago I read a lot reviewed on bitcoin site how digital currency had helped them recover there stolen bitcoin, as regards a recovery expert and genius so I contact his via his email ultimatefundrecovery At g mail Com, explained my ordeal how I was scammed and he promised to help me get all my bitcoin back to my greatest surprise I got all bitcoins recovered within 48 hours.
