Two of Athena’s founders - CEO Eric Gravengaard and CCO Gil Valentine - were featured in the first episode of a new series focusing on the Bitcoin ATM industry. Peter McCormack hosts the hour long discussion as part of his What Bitcoin Did podcast. Topics discussed were:
How Athena got started
Basic operation and compliance issues
Differences between US and South American markets
Challenges facing ATM operators
How ATMs can push the fringes of crypto awareness to the people who need it most
Venezuelan / Colombian border
Typical ATM use cases
Fees and costs in the industry
Our thanks to Peter for shedding some light an often misunderstood segment of crypto and exploring how we and other operators are getting bitcoin into the hands of a very different clientele.
