ATLANTA, Dec. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitcoin Depot (NASDAQ: BTM), a U.S.-based Bitcoin ATM operator and leading fintech company, today announced that founder and CEO Brandon Mintz has been recognized on Forbes' 13th annual Under 30 List for the Class of 2024, a prestigious set of lists recognizing 30 notable people under 30 years of age across various industries. Mintz received recognition in the Finance category for establishing Bitcoin Depot. As the world's largest crypto kiosk provider, Bitcoin Depot boasts over 6,000 Bitcoin ATMs across North America, commanding a market share of over 20%.
"In founding Bitcoin Depot seven years ago, my aim was to bring cryptocurrency within easy reach of the average person. Today, I am thrilled to see the significant progress we've achieved this year, not just in expanding our presence but also in delivering outstanding service to our clients, even amidst challenging market conditions," Mintz stated.
