Block plunges to loss as bitcoin boost fades

Reuters- May 5, 2022

Block Inc, the payments company led by Jack Dorsey, on Thursday reported a loss for the first quarter as demand for bitcoin softened due to a decline in cryptocurrency prices.

Bitcoin revenue more than halved in the first three months of 2022 as the euphoria around the biggest digital currency subsided after last year’s frenetic rally, which was fueled by growing mainstream acceptance of the cryptocurrency and favorable tweets from Elon Musk.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders came in at $204.2 million, or 38 cents per share, compared with a profit of $39 million, or 8 cents per share, a year earlier.
