Thursday 2 December 2021 11:59 CET | News

Square has announced it is renaming itself Block as it focuses on technologies such as blockchain and expands beyond its original credit card-reader business.

As part of the Square rebrand, Square Crypto, a separate part of the company dedicated to advancing Bitcoin, will change its name to Spiral.

According to an official statement, the name Block has many associated meanings for the company — building blocks, neighbourhood blocks and their local businesses, communities coming together at block parties full of music, a blockchain, a section of code, and obstacles to overcome.
