Walmart Silently Starts Hosting Bitcoin ATMs

The world’s largest organisation by revenue, Walmart is letting customers purchase BTC at dozens of its stores located in the United States. Buyers can purchase the digital assets at Coinstar machines inside the retailer’s stores.

Walmart communications director Molly Blakeman mentioned,

“Coinstar, in partnership with Coinme, has launched a pilot that allows its customers to use cash to purchase bitcoin. There are 200 Coinstar kiosks located inside Walmart stores across the United States that are part of this pilot.”

Coinstar is best known for permitting shoppers to exchange digital assets for paper bills or gift cards. The ability to purchase BTC is enabled by Coinme, a virtual asset wallet and payment company that specializes in BTC ATMs.

The virtual currency ATM industry is ballooning at a quick pace, partially fueled by the coronavirus outbreak. Coinstar declared plans last year to double its fleet of thirty five hundred Coinme Bitcoin ATMs amid a surge in usage.

Of late, Coinstar, which began adding BTC-purchasing services with Coinme in early 2019, added three hundred BTC-enabled machines at Winn-Dixie, Harveys and other grocery stores across Florida.

The compliance director of Bitcoin ATM provider DigitalMint, Seth Sattler said that large-scale Bitcoin ATM rollouts could bode well for espousal, however, there are apprehensions about money laundering.
