Square’s Cash App has slowly become one of the most popular ways for U.S. citizens to transfer value and send payments to each other.
But that’s not all Cash App wants to do. It also wants to become the primary wallet solution for its customers to use the app to purchase and sell digital assets.
That is the reason why the company, which comes under the umbrella of Square Inc., is slowly making its way into the cryptocurrency sector. Since August 2018, it’s been allowing its users to use Cash App to buy bitcoin in all 50 states. And it does so without levying additional trading fees.
The process is simple and easy, which makes it a great way to delve into the cryptocurrency world especially if you are new to it. Here is a breakdown of the procedure to help you understand how to buy Bitcoin with Cash App.
