This historic milestone will truly represent a reinvention of the ATM after more than 50 years of great service to millions of customers across the world.”
The new API App model for ATMs will see customers transacting seamlessly through mobile apps, with pre-staged transactions, including cash withdrawals or cryptocurrency exchanges, taking under 10 seconds.
