Square experimented with letting merchants accept bitcoinin 2014. Since then, San Francisco-based Square has said it's introducing Bitcoin trading for nearly all users of its Cash App, which lets users send money to friends and family.

A spokesman for Square told Reuters that the company does not have figures to share on Dorsey's bitcoin and cryptocurrency holdings. "And that's why we're working with [Lightning Labs]", said Dorsey.
According to Dorsey, the team had a working solution within a week. Again, the focus was on totally seamless, nearly invisible Bitcoin payments.
He stated that it was indeed possible that Square would act as stepping stone for future projects, but felt that what they were doing was an important step in the current climate.
"The internet deserves a native currency; it will have a native currency", he said. It will have a native currency. "I don't know if it'll be Bitcoin or not". I hope it will be.
