Bitcoin Depot Targets Bitcoin Treasury Strategy

Demonstrates the Company’s Confidence in the Future of Bitcoin by Strategically Allocating a Portion of Cash Reserves to BTC

ATLANTA, June 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitcoin Depot (NASDAQ: BTM), a U.S.-based Bitcoin ATM (“BTM”) operator and leading fintech company, today announced it plans to allocate a portion of its cash reserves to Bitcoin (BTC). Any future purchases will be opportunistic in nature and will not interfere with cash needs to support the company’s multiple growth opportunities.

This shift in BTM’s treasury strategy follows Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2023-08, which, among other things, allows companies to record gains held on cryptocurrencies. The ASU will apply to all entities with fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024.

"Adopting Bitcoin as part of our treasury strategy underscores our long-standing belief in Bitcoin as a significant financial asset and a store of value," said Brandon Mintz, CEO of Bitcoin Depot. "We have always believed in providing easy access to Bitcoin for everyone, and this move reaffirms our confidence in Bitcoin’s potential for growth and stability. Given the recent accounting standards update, it also allows our shareholders to benefit from future BTC appreciation.”

Bitcoin, as an asset, has demonstrated remarkable resilience and growth since its inception, achieving a market capitalization of over $1 trillion at its peak. Institutional adoption has surged, with numerous companies and even countries recognizing Bitcoin's value proposition. The introduction of Bitcoin ETFs has further legitimized its standing in traditional financial markets, making it more accessible to a wider range of investors. By including Bitcoin in its treasury strategy, Bitcoin Depot aligns itself with other forward-thinking institutions that see cryptocurrency as a hedge against inflation and a strategic asset for future growth.

This news also marks the latest show of momentum for Bitcoin Depot, which holds the largest market BTM share in North America, with over 7,400 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.
