BTMs represented a quantum leap forward in the evolution of cryptocurrency. Over the past few years, they have helped drive adoption by offering a seamless portal between cash and bitcoin. This was (and still is) especially valuable for people that may not otherwise be able to access cryptocurrency. Despite the major downturn in crypto prices during 2018, use of our BTMs remained steady throughout the year, with an median buy and sell amount of $100 and $250 since March ’18.
During this time, the Faa.st and BTM projects remained separate. But our long-term goal was eventually to combine these two products into what we have built today: a complete, frictionless ecosystem for buying, selling and allocating cryptocurrency by linking the fiat and digital asset worlds together— all while cutting out centralized exchanges to the maximum extent possible.
Clearly, the public has not lost faith in cryptocurrency, and that’s why we made the decision to make more digital assets available to our customers on our BTMs.
