He accepted that the introduction of the cash app was a difficult and contentious on especially within the company. “But it is important to do things instead of waiting for things to happen to you first”, he commented later in the interview.
According to him, the two major user of the app is Walmart and McDonalds. Given the market clout of the two giants, the app is sure to make major headway in coming days. The aim of the app is to make the transaction fast and quick like the Bitcoin itself.
