Here is the first bitcoin ATM in El Salvador. It was installed by a local entrepreneur, who hopes that this will be the first of many for his country. El Salvador’s first bitcoin ATM is located at a local coffee shop called Cafe Ciudad. The entrepreneur who installed it is looking to expand crypto-friendly businesses with more bitcoin ATMs in El Salvador, so people can buy and sell cryptocurrency without having to go abroad. Crypto-friendly businesses are where you can easily purchase bitcoin with USD or other cryptocurrencies like Litecoin and Ethereum using fiat currency. The entrepreneur expects that more people will be able to do this with each new installation of BTC ATMs he makes. The first bitcoin ATM in El Salvador is located at the Palmares Mall, and is operated by ATM provider Genesis Coin. As of December 2017, there are over 1,700 bitcoin ATMs worldwide.
The ATM is currently not accepting any deposits or withdrawals. It’s unclear if the machine will be used to trade cryptocurrency or actually distribute it to users of the cafe. The owner of the cafe said he installed the machine because he is fascinated with Bitcoin, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, and wants to help spread awareness about them. At the time of writing, there are only 10 crypto ATMs in all of El Salvador, which indicates a low demand for cryptocurrency. El Salvador’s first bitcoin ATM is operated by Coin2go, a local firm that provides cryptocurrency services to businesses, individuals and tourists. El Salvador has been one of the most crypto-friendly countries in Latin America as it passed a bill that allows for cryptocurrencies as legal tender in February this year.
El Salvador’s Bitcoin ATM was installed in the city of San Salvador, its capital, which is located in Central America. This installation not only makes El Salvador’s Bitcoin the first country in Central America to have such an ATM, but also makes it the latest country in the world to house a crypto kiosk. El Salvador is making a huge step forward in cryptocurrency adoption with its first bitcoin ATM. The machine is located at Global Coin Solutions and will allow users to buy and sell digital currency through cash transactions. Bitcoin ATMs are machines that connect to the internet and allow people to buy and sell bitcoins for cash. The ATM in El Salvador will be connected to a local bank account and will be entirely managed by them.
