Attributes of Bitcoin ATM Kiosks
Although cryptocurrency can be bought and sold via an online exchange, it can take three days or more for transactions to settle. In the case of a sale, that means you may not have access to your funds as needed. A Bitcoin ATM allows for instant settlement. In the case of a purchase, transactions are credited to your wallet immediately. In the case of a sale, you’ll have cash in hand immediately.
For cryptocurrency users, Bitcoin ATMs offer:
- Easy purchases
- Instant conversion to cash
- Increased user satisfaction
KIOSK has developed a set of standard bitcoin kiosk models, with over 1000 units deployed to date. Operators and ISVs utilize KIOSK’s Hardware Integration Module to facilitate seamless software integration and secure operation. Internal components are fully secured with hardened exterior door locks. The cash vault is contained within a separate locked vault, isolating cash components from the rest of the serviceable transaction devices.
