The world hits 17,000 Bitcoin ATMs

Tram Ho

In the context of jobs being lost due to Covid-19, people are flocking to virtual money, Bitcoin ATMs also sprouted more and more. This week, Bitcoin Depot deployed 115 more trees installed across 24 US states, bringing the total number of Bitcoin ATMs worldwide to a mere 17,000, accounting for 85% in the US, followed by Canada (7, 7%) and Great Britain (1.17%). Notably, although India is about to submit to the Government a bill banning virtual currencies, there is also a Bitcoin ATM located in the city of Gurugram, southwest of New Delhi.

In fact, Bitcoin ATMs are a generic term for a virtual money ATM, used to buy or sell virtual money in exchange for the local currency where the ATM is located. Users can also send cash from one country to another using two Bitcoin ATMs, similar to overseas Vietnamese sending remittances from abroad.
