What is Bitcoin and How Does it Work?

Share This Article

Cryptocurrency, particularly Bitcoin, has become a buzzword for the 21st century, and just like any widely accepted currency or asset, it requires accessible platforms for exchange. Enter the Bitcoin ATM, commonly termed as BTM. These machines, although resembling traditional ATMs, have unique functionalities tailored to cryptocurrency. Wondering how it all works? Let’s unpack what they’re all about. 

Understanding the Bitcoin ATM (BTM)

A Bitcoin ATM, or BTM, is a physical kiosk, not entirely unlike the regular ATMs you’re used to. But, instead of dispensing cash, it enables users to engage in cryptocurrency transactions. Depending on the machine, you can buy Bitcoin (and sometimes other cryptocurrencies) or even sell them.

Types of BTMs:

  • One-way BTM (Buy only): This machine operates in a single direction. You can insert your cash and receive Bitcoin (or other supported cryptocurrencies) in return, which is then sent directly to your digital wallet. It’s essentially a digital vending machine for Bitcoin.
  • Two-way BTM (Buy and Sell): This is a more versatile machine that allows for transactions in both directions. In addition to purchasing Bitcoin, you can also sell your Bitcoin in exchange for cash. So, if you ever find yourself in need of physical cash and you have some Bitcoin to spare, our two-way BTM has you covered.

Navigating the Bitcoin ATM Experience:

  • Scan Your Wallet QR Code: You’ll need a digital wallet to store your Bitcoin. Scanning its QR code provides the BTM with the necessary address to send your Bitcoin.
  • Insert Cash: Deposit the desired cash amount to initiate the purchase of Bitcoins.
  • Confirm and Receive: Once you’ve reviewed the details, confirm the transaction. The BTM will then send Bitcoin directly to your wallet.
