萨尔瓦多的第一台比特币ATM机现已投入使用

2020-2-14 17:06

 

拉利伯塔德(La Libertad)市的可可咖啡馆(Cafe Cocoa shop)现在是萨尔瓦多第一家有比特币ATM的咖啡店。该ATM还允许游客在El Zonte海滩旅游区的商店买卖比特币现金和莱特币。


这台加密ATM由总部位于芝加哥的雅典娜比特币公司(Athena Bitcoin)运营,该公司目前在美国和南美运营着近100台比特币ATM。该系统允许用户在无需银行账户或信用卡的情况下购买数字令牌。


使用移动比特币钱包可以在90秒内完成一次交易,不过也有一些限制:每笔交易2950美元,每笔交易2000美元,每天最多9900美元。交易是通过该公司的点对点交易、BitQuick和MercadoAthena进行的。


自动取款机是雅典娜希望扩大现有密码用户基础的一个标志。“雅典娜比特币支持使用比特币作为一种货币来改善各地人民的生活。我们的雅典娜比特币ATM网络在美国和拉丁美洲继续扩展。


店里安装的机器是劳恩斯硬币(Genesis Coin),这种型号的硬币已经在全球2272个地点使用,而且是在美国制造的。该系统包括所需的反洗钱和KYC保护身份验证和防止欺诈。


萨尔瓦多推出了首台比特币ATM机,这是拉美国家对此类产品需求增加的又一例证。例如,最近,BBVA、Tauros和Dash在墨西哥的合作使得全国11000台BBVA atm可以用Dash加密货币换取菲亚特。


在美国,比特币ATM机的数量也在增长:比特币仓库最近在其网络上超过了500台机器,其竞争对手ATM运营商Coinsource刚刚突破600台。

 

The Café Cocoa shop in the city of La Libertad is now the first location in El Salvador with a Bitcoin ATM. The ATM also allows people visiting the store in the tourist area of El Zonte beach to buy and sell Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin.

 

The crypto ATM is operated by the Chicago-based Athena Bitcoin, which currently operates nearly 100 Bitcoin ATMs across the United States and South America. The system allows users to purchase the digital tokens without the need for a bank account or credit card.

 

A purchase can be made in just 90 seconds using a mobile Bitcoin wallet, although there are some limits: $2,950 per purchase transaction, $2,000 per sale transaction, and a maximum daily total of $9,900. Exchanges are made through the company's peer-to-peer exchanges, BitQuick and MercadoAthena.

 

The ATM is a sign of Athena's desire to expand the existing base of crypto users. "Athena Bitcoin supports the use of Bitcoin as a currency to improve the lives of people everywhere. Our network of Athena Bitcoin ATM is continuing to expand in the US and Latin America," Athena Bitcoin CEO and co-founder Eric Gravengaard told Decrypt.

 

The machine installed in the shop is the Genesis Coin, which is the same model already in use at 2,272 locations globally and was built in the United States. The system includes the required anti-money laundering and KYC protections for identity verification and fraud prevention.

 

El Salvador getting its first Bitcoin ATM is yet another example of the increased demand for such products in Latin America. Recently, for example, a partnership between BBVA, Tauros, and Dash in Mexico enabled 11,000 BBVA ATMs nationwide to receive Dash cryptocurrency in exchange for fiat.

 

In the United States, Bitcoin ATMs are similarly on the rise: Bitcoin Depot recently surpassed 500 machines on its network, and competing ATM operator Coinsource just crossed the 600 mark.
