🎙️Quote of the week

“Jack Dorsey left his CEO role with a bang. His next move will probably be introducing cryptocurrency payments to the product, as he's been well known for his blockchain ambitions. I couldn't think of a better time to do this, taking into account the current condition of the digital payments sector - over 12 per cent total transaction value annual growth - in which Square operates. It might be a great advantage in a market with such fierce competition.”
