Block is like square but in 4 dimensions: if you say it in vector's voice, the villian from Despicable Me, it's funny.

I read it in Abraham Lincoln's voice.

Square goes all in on a scam to steal the world's wealth out from under them.

H&R or regular type?

Blockchain is a dead end for long term applications due to the ballooning electricity requirements.  We can't switch over to Blockchain and fight climate change, not to mention that the majority of Blockchain applications are pyramid schemes and scams.
Dorsey & Block should have to buy shrinking carbon credits every year to maintain their technology, I doubt it would be viable.

No, you see, it's going soon to Proof of Stake.  Very soon.  That will solve this problem for good.

Why did a payment processor buy a music streaming service?

Like, I get it, but... it just sounds really dumb. Borderline The Onion, even.

Jack Dorsey is going to take a business that works just fine and run it into the ground following his stupid billionaire ideas.  Square, which he has mostly ignored since he founded it, is just fine as a credit card processor.  Tying it into backasswards blockchain/cryptocurrency/NFT bullshiat is beyond stupid.
