We tested several different manufacturers until we found a proper partner in ChainBytes. Our clients are extremely happy with the simple process of buy and sell. While we have more control over fine-tuning of operation with Dashboard then what we had with any other manufacturer.

We got our machine from Chainbytes, and once it was set up, the process was very smooth. They took care of our compliance trough BTMcompliance and provided us with instructional brochures to place at the machines. Now it’s pretty simple, just watching the transactions from our dashboard and making sure we have the machine stocked with enough cash and bitcoin
