The company which has manufactured the most bitcoin ATMs is Genesis Coin with 3,101 machines at the end of July, an increase of 157 machines during the month. The second-largest manufacturer is General Bytes with 2,661 machines, 103 of which were added in July. Coinsource also added 56 bitcoin ATM machines last month.

The bitcoin ATM operator with the most machines is Bitcoin Depot, which has 791 machines, 46 of which were added in July. The second-largest operator is Rockitcoin with 436 machines, followed by ATM Coiners, Coincloud, Coinflip, and Coinsource.

Bitcoin ATMs were the focus of a recent crackdown by the U.S. government when a $25 million operation was taken down and 17 machines seized in California. The owner was running the operation without complying with proper AML requirements, the Department of Justice said.

In June, news.Bitcoin.com reported that U.S. regulators had been targeting bitcoin ATMs. According to blockchain analytics firm Ciphertrace, 88% of funds that U.S.-based BTMs sent to exchanges in 2019 were sent offshore and users on average sent more funds to high-risk exchanges than low-risk exchanges.
