The Boost promotion gives Cash App users instant cashback and can be activated from the Cash Card tab on the application.
Square states on its website that it is always “experimenting with new Boosts” and that means on occasion Boost can expire or be replaced with “new and exciting offers.”
Why It Matters: Square’s revenue from the apex cryptocurrency rose a whopping 1100% in the third quarter with Cash App Bitcoin revenue touching $1.63 billion.
Square made a $50 million investment in Bitcoin in October this year, which JPMorgan analysts said was a “strong vote of confidence for the future of bitcoin.”
That investment nearly doubled to $104.67 million last week, as Bitcoin journeyed towards new highs.
Price Action: Square shares closed nearly 2% higher at $235.45 on Friday and gained 0.42% in the after-hours session. Bitcoin traded 2.06% higher at $23,859.55 at press time.
