Facebook just rolled out Facebook Pay. This makes them a yet-another competitor in the very crowded payment system market. This new service bridges Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. And is now considered a competitor to Apple Pay and Square. It begins rolling out this week (Nov 15) on Facebook and Messenger.

Jack Dorsey: The next decade belongs to Africa as technology ripples through the continent. I agree with him. I was visiting Nigeria and you could see the overwhelming popularity of mobile devices, data plans, AND the growing desire for mobile payments.

Although it was there, you could feel, at least in Nigeria, that there is a controlled effort by the telecoms(?) to resist the push by 3rd party mobile payment operators, instead preferring people to use cash via their telecom branded ATMs. It was very strange. People had to carry suitcases full of nairah (their local currency). But inevitably, apps like Square seem very well positioned to make huge waves in countries like Nigeria because their is a huge yearning for mobile payment methods there.

WorldRemit, a very popular mobile payment app, ironically built by a Nigerian, is used extensively in east African countries like Kenya, but it seems their west countries are still using cash despite a 95% mobile-use penetration rate. Everyone i saw had an iPhone, or some android device. So the consumers are ready, the infrastructure is mature. It just takes the will of a company like Square to cease it because the potential in this market, for this continent, is worth hundreds of $billions.

Quiet board. Guess not too many interested in SQ, even at close to ATH of $154.

I think it's more like not too many interested in Silicon Investor these days.

I know I spend a lot less time here lately, mostly due to life circumstances.

SQ has definitely been a monster stock since the March lows in the low 30's!

Yes, I regret I sold it around $90 ages ago.

Right now, I'm selling cash secured Puts at around $135, hoping for a pullback so I can own it again.
