  2. Enter your mobile phone number
  3. Enter the unique identifier code texted to your phone
  4. Select the “Sell” option
  5. Select the “BTM” option
  6. Enter the amount you wish to withdraw, in denominations of $20 and $100 (if you use the Coin Cloud Wallet app, you can do all this in advance from your phone)
  7. Scan the QR code that appears on the BTM screen with the camera function on your mobile wallet app

  9. Send the funds to the QR code you scanned
  10. Transactions take approximately 10–15 minutes to process on the Bitcoin network
  11. Once the transaction has fully processed, you will receive a text message informing you to return to the BTM to withdraw your funds (if you use the Coin Cloud Wallet app to set up your sell, the cash will be ready when you arrive)
  12. At the BTM, log in with your phone number once again to retrieve the dispensed cash
