A Bitcoin ATM is a kiosk that allows a person to purchase Bitcoin by using cash or debit card. Some Bitcoin ATMs offer bi-directional functionality enabling both the purchase of Bitcoin as well as the sale of Bitcoin for cash. In some cases, Bitcoin ATM providers require users to have an existing account to transact on the machine.
Bitcoin ATMs are on the rise as evident about or report about 306 new Bitcoin ATMs being installed last month. This was the highest monthly growth since the last year and net growth of 228 globally. DigitalMint itself has over 250 locations in 25 states.
