BitAccess: ATM Interview
As Bitcoin becomes more and more mainstream, it is also becoming a payment method that people need to actually see, not some “magic internet money” as some people call it. ATM’s and other physical processing units solidify the legitimacy of Bitcoin, offering an interface that people are familiar with, to a currency they aren’t.
BitAccess Inc. produces the world’s leading Bitcoin Automatic Teller Machine (BTM). Our machines allow anyone to deposit cash and instantly receive a digital wallet containing the equivalent in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, or do the reverse and exchange Bitcoin for traditional currency. Currently, BitAccess already has installed Bitcoin ATMs in half a dozen countries, with dozens more launching in the next few months. Founded in November 2013, BitAccess is a privately held company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
