Young people are much more interested in Bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies than any other group of people. But where they get the information? We assume that many are interested from personal searches on the Internet. However, somewhat surprising is that many have had their first contact with the cryptocurrencies through TikTok. TikTok is an application for sharing videos very popular. In it, Square launched a marketing campaign of influence, during December 2019. Something interesting of your marketing strategy is that paid to some of the biggest stars of TikTok to push your Cash App. Square is becoming viral and is introducing millions to Bitcoin and the world of crypto. In addition, this app earned about $ 150 million in revenue for Bitcoin in its last quarter. As reported by Business Insider.

Other companies in addition to Square are developing products and services that will facilitate the way towards the purchase of Bitcoin. Some examples are Facebook and Samsung. TikTok is a social network quite dynamic and their use of marketing on the part of Square is quite innovative to attract young people to the world of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrencies
