Pushing Cash App to mainstream Millenials
Square teamed up with TikTok in order to push Cash App to mainstream Millennials and also to introduce millions of users to Bitcoin via a viral video and song called Cash App.
In an interview with CNBC, Square chief financial officer Amrita Ahuja said that Cash App’s marketing strategy is reaching a wide demographic.
“The way this team thinks about innovation is not just in the classic way that you innovate and watch a product and then optimize it as you see consumer results. But we also think about innovation in terms of how we reach our customers, whether that’s acquiring a customer, engaging with a customer, messaging with a customer,” Ahuja said as cited by the online publication the Daily Hodl.
The CFO continued and explained that “TikTok and some of the efforts there, along with other efforts, is really just an extension of how we think of innovation within the Cash App team.”
Co-founder and CEO of Twitter and Square, Dorsey has been an advocate for Bitcoin since the early days. Having launched a crypto division of Square early this year (called Cash App - which helps newcomers buy Bitcoin), Dorsey is now making plans to lead the way to mass BTC adoption in Africa.
