Block’s($NYSE:SQ) stock has been lagging behind other fintech companies in recent weeks, due in large part to the impact of bitcoin on its results. While the company reported solid overall results for the quarter, the market has been focused on the weak revenue numbers due to the collapse in bitcoin transaction revenues. This has caused the stock to trade below the levels where it traded back in 2018. Looking ahead, it is uncertain how long the market will remain focused on Block’s bitcoin-related issues. If the company can continue to post strong results despite the headwinds from bitcoin, then the stock may eventually rebound.

However, if bitcoin transaction revenues continue to decline, then Block’s earnings and market share could be adversely affected.
