During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, transferring money through bitcoin ATMs has gained in popularity by helping people send money instantly while avoiding crowded banks and financial institutions. It is still essential for users to undertake all necessary precautions while using Coin Cloud ATM.

According to the CDC:

“It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, but we are still learning more about this virus.”

First, what is Coin Cloud doing to make sure YOU are safe?

The FDA and several other federal agencies have issued guidelines regarding the disinfectants that should be used to clean an object or a place. Our host partners are in complete alignment with our cleanliness and safety standards during this time. When using a Coin Cloud ATM, you can be sure that the kiosk is being disinfected regularly. Our technicians and hosts have been instructed to focus on “high contact” areas, including the touchscreens and cash transaction mechanisms.


During the #SaferAtHome era, please practice social distancing when using a Coin Cloud Bitcoin ATM. If there are other people near the ATM, remember to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from them. Dr. Fauci (Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) recommends this distance to mitigate the potential for contracting coronavirus from someone who coughs — or even breathes — near you. Take it seriously, please.

Bring those disposable latex gloves.

Regardless of how stunningly clean our ATMs might look to you, be certain about your safety and use a new pair of disposable gloves to operate the Coin Cloud BTM. Our non-expert recommendation: Once you’ve completed your transaction, dispose of the gloves immediately without touching anything else, just to be sure. Help prevent cross-contamination.

Hand sanitizer — the obvious hero. 🦸‍♀️

If you are one of the lucky few who have access to the coveted Purell or any other hand sanitizer brand, please use your FDA-approved hand sanitizer BEFORE and AFTER you’ve made a transaction on a Coin Cloud ATM. Ensure that the hand sanitizer you’re using contains 60% to 95% alcohol content. Also, please read the instructions carefully on the label of your hand sanitizer because we legally cannot tell you how to apply that heroic and life-saving nectar.

One final word:

Bitcoin ATMs like Coin Cloud are providing a safe and far more convenient way to send and receive money during these difficult times. While our team and our host partners prioritize your safety over everything else, it is your responsibility to ensure that you are using our BTM in a cautious and compassionate manner. Think of yourself, your loved ones, and others. We want you to remain safe during this unprecedented time in global history. Please stay safe and be well.
