BTM world adoption
Almost everyone who is interested in crypto world has already known that a few days ago the International airport of Amsterdam installed the first airport cryptocurrency ATM in Europe. Now all visitors of Schiphol may exchange their cryptocurrencies for euros.
It is not the first time when an international airport becomes more convenient for cryptocurrency users. This year the Brisbane Airport in Australia announced that now all the merchants and airport terminals accept crypto assets such as bitcoin core, dash, ethereum, etc. Apparently the main reason for this is the growing popular trend of cryptocurrencies and the increasing demand for digital currencies as payment means.
Bitcoin ATM business opportunities
A cryptocurrency ATM is an ideal opportunity for an average person to exchange cryptocurrencies for cash. The whole process is very clear: you put in a banknote into an ATM and then input your receipt with crypto address and get your chosen cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, or many others.
So it’s obvious that the principle of working of a crypto ATM is almost the same as of a regular ATM, but instead of depositing money to your bank account it deposits to your cryptocurrency wallet just in a few minutes.
