Square’s Bitcoin Service Powered by Private Brokers

A recent regulatory filing shows that Square (SQ) offers its bitcoin trading service through private brokers rather than public cryptocurrency exchanges. Working with private brokers instead of public exchanges may help Square minimize risks in its bitcoin trading business, particularly by ensuring more predictable bitcoin prices. Partnering with private brokers may also make Square’s bitcoin trading service look more professional and secure, which may, in turn, help the company attract more traders to its platform.
