Miami-based bitcoin technology startup Bitstop, announced today it has installed Miami International Airport’s first bitcoin ATM. Through the ATM, installed this past Tuesday, customers can now conveniently buy or sell bitcoin for cash while traveling.
This a strategic location for Bitstop, the first and largest bitcoin ATM operator in Florida. Miami International Airport is the third-busiest airport in the United States in terms of international passenger traffic.
MIA is the largest gateway between the United States and Latin America and is one of the largest airline hubs in the United States.
“We’re excited to be working with Miami International Airport on this historic deal. More and more people prefer to travel with bitcoin instead of cash for convenience and security. Miami International Airport is a perfect place for our customers to conveniently exchange their dollars for bitcoin and vice versa when traveling domestically or abroad.”
– Doug Carrillo, Bitstop co-founder, and chief strategy officer
Using bitcoin ATMs has become one of the easiest ways to conveniently buy or sell small amounts of bitcoin for cash. The MIA location marks Bitstop’s 40th bitcoin ATM installation over the last two months and brings Bitstop’s total bitcoin ATM count to 130 machines nationwide.
The demand for bitcoin ATMs has grown and, as a result, Bitstop is on pace to reach 500 bitcoin ATMs installed worldwide by the end of 2020.
