The idea was born in early 2017 by Adam who wanted to merge crypto technology with old-school arcade systems. After months of development and financial support from Scott (BittyBot) Adam had modified a once defunct 1999 arcade claw machine into a bitcoin accepting, fully working machine and CryptoGrabber was born. CryptoGrabber was showcased at CoinFestUK on April 7th & 8th 2017. The machine was well received and we had some awesome feedback. Over 30 people played the machine (many winning apparel!).
