Lamassu, a bitcoin, and crypto automated teller machine company, today unveiled its new generation. After multiple years of hard work, the company has introduced the ‘Sinatra’ family models which are named after the city on the Portuguese Riviera.
The Sintra family models are defined by their all-glass front panels and ssuboard, a computer board designed exclusively for Lamassu machines.
Key features of the ssuboard include a low-heat and low-power ARM processor, battery backup, OS on microSD, onboard 3G and GPS functionality, tamper sensors and alarm, NFC front door control, and a dedicated microprocessor for watchdog services and power management.
The new base Sintra is a floor standing cryptomat designed for two-way operation but may also be ordered as a one-way machine. The new-gen was produced as a one-piece unit that lowered manufacturing costs. It comes priced at €7,500 for a two-way, and is less expensive than the previous two-way configuration. The base Sinatra does not have an internal vault, so the company recommends it for a secure location.
The Sintra Forte is the vaulted version of the Sintra, it is wider and deeper in size and has a larger display. It’s priced at €8,900 for the basic two-way.
Its vault is composed of 6mm hardened steel and has two electronic lock options, a German Wittkopp lock as the default or an upgrade to a Kaba Cencon. The Cencon is recommended if planning to work with cash collection services such as Garda or Brinks.
The Douro II, priced at €5,200, and is the newest version of the original countertop Bitcoin machine. Its improvements include an all-glass front panel, 12.1″ display, customer-facing camera, and ssuboard.
Operators of Lamassu cryptomats host their own servers and wallets. There is no central Lamassu server. The software is free to run and open source, and Lamassu does not take a cut of operators’ profits. Subscriptions for tech support are available for purchase separately.
Operator ATM admin software supports compliance tools for operators, such as ID verification, phone number collection, sanctions list, terms/conditions, and transaction limits.
