Square, which was once best known for its little white plug-in credit card swipers—as well as being Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s side hustle—has grown into a major force in payments and banking in its own right. With a stock price that has tripled so far in 2020, Square’s market value has surpassed that of Goldman Sachs. What has investors so revved up? Likely its shiny new banking license (approved in March) and its Cash App, a peer-to-peer payments and cryptocurrency-trading service whose rapid growth has made it a rival to PayPal’s Venmo. Next up: a possible acquisition of Credit Karma’s tax-preparation business.
