#4 - Square (NYSE:SQ)

Square logoSquare (SQ) could be the first established payments company to fully integrate Bitcoin technology into their payments platform.

Square helps small business owners around the globe accept credit cards through point-of-sale systems and mobile card readers. Business owners might flock to the platform if they become the company that allows them to easily and seamlessly accept Bitcoin. Just about every business owner in the world wishes they had bought Bitcoin five years ago, and owning some that the receive as payments for their business will help business owners feel like they're part of the cryptocurrency mega-trend. 

Square CEO Jack Dorsey has previously called blockchain the "next big unlock" and the company is actively testing Bitcoin payments in its marketplace app, Square Cash. If Square becomes the company that makes it easy to buy Bitcoin and use it for payments, it could benefit from a first-mover advantage and generate significant fee revenue from people using their platform to buy and sell the cryptocurrency.
