ARK’s funds had bought over 85,000 shares of the company on Tuesday and over 65,000 shares on Monday. The company is set to report its third-quarter earnings on Thursday, according to its website. 

Shares of Block closed over 7% lower on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve’s hawkish stance roiled markets.

Interestingly, in May this year, Dorsey outlined his vision for the company’s Bitcoin BTC/USD-centric future saying it no longer wants to be seen as a single-product company.

Other Buy: Wood also bought over 343,000 shares of Robinhood Markets Inc HOOD via two different ETFs — the ARK Fintech Innovation ETF ARKF and the ARK Next Generation Internet ETF ARKW valued at over $3.9 million based on Wednesday’s closing price. Wood’s funds had bought over 30,000 shares of Robinhood on Tuesday.

The company reported third-quarter revenue of $361 million, up 14% sequentially. The revenue total beat a Street estimate of $355.27 million. In the third quarter, Robinhood had 12.2 million monthly active users, down 1.8 million from the prior quarter.
