This is a distinction without a difference. Acceleration is motion.
To begin moving, acceleration is required. Regardless of the formula (squaring, multiplying, adding), at some point one must accelerate from zero to some velocity >0. But that velocity can always be broken down into smaller units, and one must reach half of any given velocity before reaching that velocity. That process can go on infinitely.
It’s Zeno’s (wrong) argument, precisely.
