Bitcoin ATM in Miami International Airport

A Bitcoin ATM machine has been installed next to Gate G16 at Miami International Airport. Doug Carrillo, Bitstop co-founder, and chief strategy officer, said more travelers go from place to place with bitcoin instead of cash as it is convenient and secured.

Miami International Airport is a perfect place for bitcoin holders to conveniently exchange their dollars for bitcoin when traveling domestically and abroad, said Carrillo.

When arriving at destinations such as in Miami, travelers can now buy or sell bitcoin for cash to spend on local products and services where cash is only accepted.
