Bitcoin Well (TSXV:BTCW,OTCQB:BCNWF) is a two-business-unit organization providing an ecosystem of products and services to make it easy for everyday people to use bitcoin. The company was established in Canada in 2013, has reached significant revenue growth year-over-year since, and has recently expanded the Online Bitcoin Portal to the US market.

Bitcoin Well earns revenue through its two core business lines, which include:

Bitcoin ATM network: Operating more than 190 Bitcoin kiosks across Canada that accept cash and vend bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin ATMs provide stable cash flows at an estimated gross margin of 15 percent.Online Bitcoin Portal: A non-custodial bitcoin platform that allows Canadians and now Americans to buy, sell and use bitcoin. Launched in Q4 2022 in Canada, Online Bitcoin Portal expanded to most of the USA in Q3 2023, and all 50 states in February 2024. Current monthly revenues exceed $4 million and are currently experiencing high growth. The gross margin is an estimated 1 percent.

Bitcoin Well earns consistent cash flow through its existing fleet of Bitcoin ATMs. The company reinvests this cash flow into the Online Bitcoin Portal, which is a scalable growth product the company believes will see exponential adoption during the bitcoin bull run – which appears to be underway.

The Bitcoin market often makes headlines when it reaches new heights or lows, but it’s shown consistent growth over the long term. The price of Bitcoin surpassed the US$72,000 mark in March 2024 and is expected to continuously captivate investors’ interest as it follows the typical halving price cycle.

Bitcoin Well has passed significant milestones since its establishment in 2013:

The company found success with its Bitcoin ATM business in 2013, generating over US$21 million in annual revenue in 2022 at a gross margin of 15 percent.Q3 2023 ATM run rate revenue: US$25 millionIn Q4 2022, Bitcoin Well began offering a non-custodial Online Bitcoin platform which reached over 17,000 users as of May 2024 and over $4.5 million in monthly revenue.Bitcoin Well has exceeded US$51 million in annual revenue since 2020.

Every product or service offered by the company is wrapped in the security of its non-custodial ecosystem. This is a hot topic right now as multiple custodial exchanges have collapsed in the last few years. The non-custodial ecosystem is widely seen by knowledgeable investors as the safest way to buy bitcoin.

In 2024, Bitcoin Well launched Cash Vouchers, which allow Canadian customers to make cash payments when buying bitcoin from the Bitcoin Portal. Cash Vouchers eliminate the barriers when using digital payments to use the Bitcoin Portal. Bitcoin Well is the only company able to offer this service.

The company intends to utilize its unique positioning of a large network of Bitcoin ATMs and a growing online Bitcoin Portal to begin combining the benefits and set itself out as a true differentiator. These unique differences allow for Bitcoin Well to offer their customer a stickier product with more offerings than other competitors which could open the door for a subscription model or other alternative customer revenue models.
