Bitcoin Depot ATMs allow you to connect to your wallet and, after verification, exchange fiat for Bitcoin, Litecoin or Ethereum. The company also launched a service for purchasing digital assets through a mobile app.
Bitcoin Depot has implemented a tiered compliance system that involves disclosure of additional details for large transactions.
According to CEO Brandon Mints, after entering the stock market, the company may consider options for acquiring competitors.
Recall that in August, the online broker Robinhood agreed to reduce the acquisition price of Ziglu startup by 58% due to deteriorating market conditions.
Earlier, Galaxy Digital refused to fulfill the agreement on the purchase of BitGo.
