Bitcoin Depot Purchases Roughly 2,300 Kiosks to Meet Increased Retailer Demand

Purchase of Kiosks Solidifies Leading Market Share in North America

/EIN News/ -- ATLANTA, April 18, 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 purchase of approximately 2,300 Bitcoin ATMs. The Company plans to strategically deploy these kiosks as part of its ongoing expansion efforts throughout 2024 and beyond.

The purchase of approximately 2,300 Bitcoin ATMs comes at a greater than 50% discount in cost per-kiosk compared to the Company's typical per-kiosk cost. The majority of the kiosks are scheduled to be delivered to Bitcoin Depot over the next two quarters. This purchase will bring the total number of kiosks in Bitcoin Depot`s fleet to over 10,000 kiosks after all of these kiosks are delivered. This rapid expansion of the Bitcoin Depot fleet helps the company meet the growing demand from retailers for its Bitcoin ATMs. Year to date, in 2024, Bitcoin Depot has signed over 2,000 new retail locations.

“This purchase will expand our fleet to over 10,000 kiosks and provides a cost-efficient opportunity to continue our expansion this year and further grow our industry-leading market share,” said Bitcoin Depot CEO Brandon Mintz. “Our pipeline of expansion opportunities remains strong and we look forward to deploying these kiosks into new locations throughout the year as we remain well-positioned to support mass crypto adoption as the world's leading Bitcoin ATM network.”

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 marks the latest show of momentum for Bitcoin Depot, which holds the largest market BTM share in North America, with over 7,300 Bitcoin ATM locations. The announcement follows several recent milestones and expansions for the company, including its first partnership with a major grocery chain as well as the advancement of its newly launched profit share program in April 2024. The company also recently surpassed its goal of signing 8,000 BTM locations ahead of schedule to achieve the largest installed fleet of locations in its history and announced expansions into new markets, including Puerto Rico and Australia.
