Bitstop has recently installed a Bitcoin (BTC) ATM machine on the Miami International Airport. This marks an important milestone as the airport has never had such a machine before, despite how common they are found across the U.S.
According to the company, this was a strategic location to set up a BTC ATM. This is one of the busiest airports in the whole country and it has a lot of international traffic, meaning that people may need to buy Bitcoin, as not everybody wants to buy fiat currency to use somewhere else.
The airport is also known as the largest airport between the US and Latin America, which makes it very important for business in general.
Doug Carrillo, the co-founder and current Chief Strategy Officer at Bitstop has talked about the situation, the new ATM will be very useful for travelers. A lot of people are choosing to use Bitcoin instead of fiat currency these days, especially because more places are accepting it and they are very convenient when traveling abroad.
This is set to be the 130th ATM that Bitstop installed in the United States. The goal of the company is to have at least 500 Bitcoin ATMs in the country before the end of 2020. When we look at the numbers worldwide, there are over 5,750 Bitcoin ATM machines all over the world. The number is set to more than double within the next few years.
Next time you are at the Miami Airport and want to check it out, or if you are there now, the new machine has been installed in Concourse G right next to Gate 16.
