Lamassu announced at the beginning of the year that it has relocated its operations to Switzerland in order to avoid regulatory issues. Co-founder Zach Harvey stated that the Swiss banks were both aware and happy with the business model of the cryptocurrency ATM:

“Just as we arrived in Switzerland we had a nice chat with a small bank in Canton Aargau and now we have a full account at a bank that is completely aware of our business model and happy to have us on board. In fact, you should expect to see one of our cryptomats in their headquarters early this year.”
