As the Bitcoin ATM revolution continues to change markets, industries, and the masses’ relationship with digital currency, one company has established itself as a vital component to cryptocurrency adoption; that company is Bitcoin Depot. Cash is no longer king, as crypto-ATMs are looking to convert physical fiat into decentralized cryptocurrency, money that puts the power into the hands of the people rather than institutions.

TokenGen’s main two “competitors” provide the most comprehensive contact form on the market alongside a requestable UI (Rocket courtesy of EtherParty) and an escrow contract (dubbed Tabby Pay and brought to you by BlockCAT).
