Crypto slowdown and tightening regulations slow ATM installations

Since the beginning of the year, the trend has been spiraling downwards with figures for Feb and March falling to 757 ATMs and 739 ATMs respectively.

ATM installations hit a peak of 2,037 last Aug as crypto adoption increased, accelerated by El Salvador’s adoption of bitcoin as legal tender.

But recently, tightening regulations have impacted numbers. In March, the U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) shut down all crypto ATMs in the country.

And this week, Belgium has also mandated crypto exchanges and wallet providers, including ATM operators, to register with the Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA). 

In terms of global players, the United States tops the chart with the most number of ATMs at 32,973. The U.S. is followed by Canada (2,443 locations), Spain (229 locations), and El Salvador (204 locations).
