A press release by Finextra on Monday 15th October stated that clients can now buy Bitcoin with all over the 100,000 Genmega ATMs in the US. This is being done in partnership with LibertyX. LibertyX is US’ largest nationwide networking aiming to help Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies become mainstream by enabling and equipping local stores to be able to deal in them. Prior to this, only 2,327 ATMs in the US allowed Bitcoin purchase as such the additional 100,000 ATMs is a quantum leap.
Speaking on the development, LibertyX CEO Chris Yim said “We have been working tirelessly to make it easier for the past five years and now are bringing simplicity, convenience and trust to cryptocurrency purchasing through the timeless ATM.”
The company also tweeted about it on their Twitter handle;
