Bitcoin Depot ATMs Are Back Online After The Hard Fork

bitcoin depot

Bitcoin Depot ATMs were offline yesterday due to the Bitcoin Blockchain hard fork.The hard fork created Bitcoin Cash, a new cryptocurrency, when a group of miners “forked” from the main bitcoin blockchain. Basically, the miners switched to a new, incompatible software that changed the rules by which the network would function. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced during this brief outage. For now, Bitcoin Depot does not plan on selling Bitcoin Cash at its ATMs, but if demand increases enough this could change.
