Amrita Ahuja, the chief investment officer of payment company Square, recently told Financial News that there were no plans to buy more Bitcoin:
We don’t have any plans at this point to make further purchases. There’s no plans at this point to re-evaluate where we are from a treasury standpoint.
Ahuja also claims that Bitcoin’s carbon footprint has to be addressed:
There’s a broader supply chain question around how renewables and clean energy become a greater part of the blockchain in general, and a greater part of the overall mining and transaction network…It’s the overall fixed footprint of the network that we need to address.”
Square reported a $20 million impairment loss on its Bitcoin investments in early May, but the value of Bitcoin it holds far exceeds its carrying cost..
