In the fourth quarter of last year, the company reported $1.76 billion in bitcoin revenue and $41 million in gross profit. Bitcoin costs in the same period were $1.71 billion.
“The increase was due to the market price of bitcoin, growth in the number of active bitcoin customers, as well as volume per customer,” the company wrote in its earnings release. “The amount of bitcoin revenue recognized will fluctuate depending on customer demand as well as changes in the market price of bitcoin.”
Additionally, Square announced Tuesday it had added 3,318 BTC to its bitcoin treasury.
