Miami International Airport Gets First Bitcoin ATM
Bitcoin maximalists in Miami can now put their seatbelts on as the Miami International Airport (MIA) recently received its first Bitcoin ATM, marking a giant step toward the widespread adoption of the oldest and most prominent cryptocurrency. The Bitstop Bitcoin ATM is located in concourse G, next to Gate 16, the press release reads.
The decision to install a Bitcoin ATM in MIA is a strategic one from Bitstop’s perspective given the fact that it is the third-busiest airport in the U.S. in terms of international passenger traffic. Bitstop, the largest Bitcoin ATM operator in Florida, is looking to capitalize on the huge traveling crowd that frequents Miami as it also acts as one of the largest gateways between the U.S. and South America.
