The Rise of the Cryptocurrency ATM

Last time you walked into a gas station, you may have walked past a Bitcoin ATM without realizing it. Cryptocurrency ATMs looks similar to your average bank ATMs, but they exchange cash for cryptocurrency and vise-versa. There are now over 3,400 cryptocurrency ATMs installed around the world, with more popping up each day.

The Pros of a Litecoin, Ethereum, and Bitcoin ATM

With the popularity of cryptocurrency ATMs on the rise, here are some of the major reasons cryptocurrency ATMs are revolutionizing the world of digital currency.


Increased Access to Cryptocurrency

Investing in cryptocurrency through an online exchange involves going through a lot of trouble, sorting through websites, and learning their processes. Cryptocurrency ATMs, on the other hand, are familiar and easy to use. They’re in locations that we commonly visit, like gas stations and convenience stores, which make them easy to access. Furthermore, the interface resembles that of a traditional banking ATM. Because the interfaces are so similar, using them is more intuitive.


Decreased Banking Barriers

Nearly 2 billion people worldwide don’t have a bank account according to the World Bank's Global Financial Inclusion database. Whether it’s because they lack ID or the physical access to a reliable bank, they can get around this barrier with increased access to cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency ATM access increases alongside the growth of the cryptocurrency market, and therefore continually works to eradicate banking barriers across the globe.


Reduced Foreign Transaction Costs and Hassle of Currency Exchange

Recently, a cryptocurrency ATM opened in the Amsterdam Airport. This makes it easy for travelers out of the Netherlands to exchange their euros to cryptocurrency when headed to destinations that don’t accept euros. This avoids foreign transaction fees on their credit cards, as cryptocurrency isn’t centralized by a third party or government. Furthermore, it saves travelers the stress of exchanging their local currency to foreign currency. They’re charged for that exchange and are left to use that currency only where it’s accepted. Cryptocurrency has no borders and can be continually purchased and exchanged at cryptocurrency ATMs around the world.
