FORT LEE, NJ, Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – GD Entertainment and Technology (OTC: GDET) (“GDET” or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the CBD, Blockchain, and Luxury Retail markets, is very excited to announce the establishment of a forthcoming agreement (the “Agreement”) to install and operate the Company’s first full-service cryptocurrency ATM. The location is a large retail marketplace with high-volume foot traffic in Austin, TX. The Company will provide the physical ATM as well as all related logistics involved in operating the ATM at the location.
“We truly love this line of business as a high-probability, high-ROI bet, and the installation of our first full-service crypto ATM is a huge step toward actualizing this extraordinary opportunity,” commented Anil Idnani, CEO of GDET. “While we cannot fully disclose the identity of the counterparty at this time, we can state that this is an ideal location in terms of foot traffic and cultural context. We have engaged a prominent, local retail solutions provider and a finalized agreement is expected within the coming days.”
Management notes that the Company is working as fast as possible to finalize the Agreement, but all details must continue to remain private at this point until the finalized Agreement has been executed by all parties, at which time, the Company will disclose all relevant details and involved parties.
The Company believes the Crypto ATM market is an underappreciated market opportunity with explosive potential. A recent report from MarketsandMarkets Research Private Ltd. concluded that the crypto ATM market will reach $144.5 million by 2023 from $6.8 million in 2017, representing a CAGR of 54.7%. Importantly, this aggressive growth rate is regarded as less vulnerable to broad economic cycle factors than most major commercial markets due to the countercyclical dimension generally attributed to cryptocurrency-related products and services.
Mr. Idnani continued, “This is not only a much bigger market than most people realize, but it’s also much more resilient. It’s extremely rare to have a market opportunity that offers both massive growth potential and low expected volatility of returns. The market for convenient cryptocurrency access and transactability is growing fast, and that’s unlikely to be impacted by macroeconomic factors. Once installed, we expect our first Crypto ATM location to be immediately profitable on an operating basis. We are already working toward establishing our second location.”
The Company will disclose additional details as the Agreement is finalized.
