Everything I see anBout this company and its growing ecosystem suggests to me we have a behemoth in the making. Like two other holdings I have (SHOP & PYPL)it seems like SQ has developed an insidious way to wiggle into small business all around the world and lock themselves in in a way that is hard to extricate from. And I say that in a positive. The disruptive potential (payroll, lending, invoicing) is astounding. People want one stop shopping and SQ has a lot to offer.

So while some see pypl as direct competition, it seems like there are some synergies that would make the two of excellent partners. Add shop to the mix and it seems consumers and vendors both win n one large ecosystem that does everything. Especially if each is able to reduce costs of duplicative services they all currently offer.

Call me crazy, but I think I want to be around to see how all of this washes out.
