If you’re looking for somewhere to purchase (or sell) bitcoin, you need look no further than the nearest Bitcoin ATM.

While these machines are in lots of places — convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, casinos, smoke shops and more — finding them isn’t necessarily any easier than finding a phone booth. (Well, actually, pretty much anything is easier than finding a phone booth these days … but I digress!)

How to Find a BTM

One way to find the nearest Bitcoin ATM, or BTM (a.k.a. Cryptocurrency Kiosk or Digital Currency Machine) is to type into Google: “Bitcoin near me.”

That will bring up all types of geographically close bitcoin machines, including unidirectional (one-way) kiosks that let you buy cryptocurrency with cash, as well as full bi-directional (two-way) machines that allow you to buy AND sell (or “cash out”).

Currently, less than 23% of all crypto ATMs in the USA are bi-directional, according to Coin ATM Radar. But 100% of Coin Cloud machines are. With Coin Cloud being the largest operator overall in the States, it turns out that over 54% of the bi-directional American machines are Coin Cloud Blue Boxes.

Imagine a regular banking ATM that wouldn’t let you withdraw your money. It would kind of be like playing Space Invaders on an Atari instead of Fortnite on a PS4.

Save Time Searching

If you know you want the full experience, and the choice of whether to buy or sell a variety of digital currencies, you can narrow down your search and accomplish it more quickly with the Coin Cloud BTM locator map.

Every single digital currency machine it shows you will let you buy AND sell Bitcoin and 28 altcoins with cash. So unlike other maps, you don’t have to second-guess it.

Ease of Use

If you’ve never used a Bitcoin ATM before, it’s a lot like a regular banking ATM in terms of user experience. The main difference is you don’t need a bank account or debit card to use a Bitcoin ATM! You just need a mobile phone number, plus one form of ID if you want to trade higher amounts. So, you get all the familiarity of a machine you know with the modern aspects of cryptocurrency. Plus, the convenience of using cash.
