Bitcoin Depot Completes Purchase Of Roughly 400 Additional Bitcoin Atms For Q1 2024 Expansion


(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) Bitcoin Depot targets to have roughly 8,000 Bitcoin ATMs installed by the end of 2024

ATLANTA, Feb. 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitcoin Depot (“Bitcoin Depot” or the“Company”) (NASDAQ: BTM), a U.S.-based Bitcoin ATM (“BTM”) operator and leading fintech company, today announced the completion of a purchase of roughly 400 additional Bitcoin ATM kiosks, which the Company plans to deploy by the end of Q1 2024. To date, in 2024, Bitcoin Depot has committed to a total purchase of 900 kiosks between this purchase of 400 kiosks, and the previously announced 500 kiosk order. Bitcoin Depot intends to have the largest installed fleet of Bitcoin ATMs in its history, with roughly 8,000 kiosks installed by the end of 2024.

“We plan to expand aggressively in kiosk count in 2024 to attempt gain significant market share,” said Bitcoin Depot CEO Brandon Mintz.“According to coinatmradar , the number of BTMs in the Bitcoin ATM industry in the U.S. is still significantly lower than what it was at its peak in August 2022 at 34,626 because as of February 1st, 2024, the number of BTMs in the U.S. stood at 29,401 BTMs. Much of this 15% decline was related to two major BTM operators that are no longer in business, and Bitcoin Depot is well positioned to take advantage of the lack of supply of BTMs in the U.S. market.”

Bitcoin Depot's products and services provide an intuitive, quick, and convenient process for converting cash into Bitcoin, giving users the ability to access the broader digital financial system, including using their Bitcoin for purposes of making payments, transfers, remittances, online purchases, and investments.

This news comes as the latest show of momentum for the Company following a string of recent expansion announcements and operational developments . In early 2022, Bitcoin Depot took over the #1 market share position to become the largest BTM operator in North America, and in 2023 – despite the turbulent cryptocurrency market the past couple of years – the Company became the first BTM operator to go public on a major U.S. stock exchange. Bitcoin Depot and its leadership have since been recognized and celebrated for the Company's industry-leading growth in Forbes 30 Under 30 , Deloitte's 2023 Technology Fast 500 , and, most recently, the 2023 Inc. 5000 .
