US-based Bitcoin ATM manufacturer Coinme has partnered with Coinstar to offer Bitcoin redemption vouchers from Coinstar kiosks across 3 different states of America. The vouchers may be redeemed for BTC from Coinme’s website.
The mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies is rising slowly but steadily. The government may be trying to crack down on them in India, but in other countries a number of measures are being taken to make them as mainstream as possible. For instance, we’ve seen how newspaper selling points in Australia turned into the points of purchasing cryptocurrencies, and now something similar is happening in US too. A Bitcoin ATM manufacturer based in the country has partnered with the makers of popular coin-to-cash conversion machines to offer Bitcoin in major malls and stores across United States.
Coinme CEO Neil Bergquist said about the partnership in a press release:
“We’re excited to team up with Coinstar to give consumers a convenient and easy way to buy bitcoin during the course of their daily routines. Bitcoin is now accessible at your local grocery store via Coinstar kiosks, and this offering will make it even easier for consumers to participate in this dynamic new economy.”
Coinstar CEO Jim Gaherity also said that they’re happy to team up with Coinme as their company always keeps looking for new ways to offer value to the consumers. The US-based Bitcoin fans also seem to have liked the combination as pictures of people collecting Bitcoin vouchers from Coinstar kiosks have started doing the rounds of internet. Now it will be interesting to see how successful this experiment remains and how Coinme further boosts adoption of cryptocurrencies in US.
