Cash App sees huge growth in Bitcoin revenue in 2021

Cash App sees huge growth in Bitcoin revenue in 2021 as the popularity of the platform increases drastically. The platform was developed by Block (formerly known as Square) and has generated a Bitcoin revenue of $10.1 billion in 2021. The gross profits were at $218 million, which is a 124% increase as compared to 2020. At the same time, the BTC revenue from the platform surged by 119%. All in all, Cash App did really well in 2021, especially in the Bitcoin segment.

Cash App and Bitcoin

In a recent quarterly report, Block reported about the performance of Cash App in Q4 2021. The numbers were not surprising at all, considering how much the platform and its CEO embrace Bitcoin. In Q4 2021, the total revenue from Bitcoin was $1.96 billion, and the gross profit stood at $46 million. Both of these numbers were up 12% and 14% on a year-year basis.

The company growth on a quarterly scale from Q3 2021 was also on the positive side in Q4. This is because of the increasing volatility of Bitcoin, which often results in more trades and increased profits for companies. The total revenue of the company and gross profits in Bitcoin stood at $10.1 billion and $218 million, respectively.

Confusion around revenue

After the reports were out, there was also some confusion regarding the revenue of Block. The CEO of FTX asked Block to “stop calling this revenue.” So, Block cleared it out, saying that the total Bitcoin revenue meant the total sales of Bitcoin in 2021. And the costs are the total Bitcoin they purchased. This means their difference can be used to calculate the profits.
