Bitcoin Depot Announces Expansion Into Australia With 125 Bitcoin Atms


(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) Bitcoin Depot plans to install BTMs in Retail Locations Across Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane

ATLANTA, April 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitcoin Depot (NASDAQ: BTM), a U.S.-based Bitcoin ATM (“BTM”) operator and leading fintech company, today announced that it plans to expand its footprint internationally into Australia and ship 125 kiosks to the country in Q2 2024. The Company eagerly anticipates further expanding its global presence by offering its cash-to-Bitcoin services to individuals across the biggest metropolitan cities in the country, such as Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. This announcement follows closely on the heels of the Company's expansion into Puerto Rico in March.

"This strategic expansion into Australia marks a significant step for us, bringing our Bitcoin ATMs to more of an untapped market with significant growth potential and lower competition," said Brandon Mintz, CEO of Bitcoin Depot. "Our goal is to offer a simple, quick, and convenient process for converting cash into Bitcoin. We see immense opportunity for growth in Australia and are excited to work with new retail partners, serve a broader customer base, and introduce Bitcoin to new users across the country. With this announcement, Bitcoin Depot will be operating in at least three countries in 2024, and we believe there is potential for further international expansion.”

Bitcoin Depot sees immense potential for Australia due to the country's roughly 27 million-person population and its current BTM kiosk count of roughly 950 BTMs amongst only 10 operators, according to data from Coin ATM Radar . This presents a unique opportunity for the Company to capitalize on this gap in the market and the growing demand for accessible Bitcoin services in the country.

Bitcoin Depot's products and services provide an intuitive, quick, and convenient process for converting cash into Bitcoin. This allows users to access the broader digital financial system, including using Bitcoin to make payments, transfers, remittances, online purchases, and investments.

"When I founded Bitcoin Depot seven years ago, my vision was to make cryptocurrency accessible to all. Today, I'm thrilled to see the significant strides we've made, particularly with our geographic expansion into Australia. This move not only enhances accessibility but also underscores our commitment to providing exceptional convenience and service in as many retail locations as possible," said Mintz.

This news adds to the Company's momentum, following recent expansion announcements and surpassing its goal of deploying 8,000 Bitcoin ATMs . Bitcoin Depot now boasts the largest installed fleet of BTMs in its history, solidifying its position as the leading BTM operator in North America. Despite market turbulence, the Company went public on a major U.S. stock exchange in 2023, earning recognition in Forbes 30 Under 30 and Deloitte's 2023 Technology Fast 500.
