Atlanta has many nicknames:
"The Empire of the South" | "Hotlanta" | "ATL" | "The-A" | "City in the Trees"

Here's something you may not know: Over 70% of American credit card, debit card, and gift card transactions are processed in Atlanta. Organizations such as FinTech Atlanta, a nonprofit coalition developed in 2015, and Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) were founded to help recognize Atlanta as the global capital of the FinTech industry.
