Allows users to trade bitcoin with the U.S. currency.
The firm Athena Bitcoin has successfully installed the first crypto ATM that operates with Argentine dollars. The ATM, which is already in operation, is located inside the Walmart constituents supermarket in the city of Buenos Aires and allows users to carry out transactions for the sale of bitcoin with the U.S. currency.
According to Matias Goldenhorn, director for Latin America at Athena Bitcoin, at last week’s decentralized conference, the ATM is already operational and using it is as simple as any ATM operation.
We have to register from the ATM, in two minutes with an e-mail and an ID, and that’s it. It indicates to which wallet to make the deposit of cryptocurrencies, the money is entered and in 3 to 5 minutes the crypto assets are credited.
Goldenhorn clarified that the new ATM operates in both pesos and dollars and with Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum.
As for the amounts, there is no minimum to buy crypto, that is, you can deposit a dollar and buy its equivalent in cryptocurrencies. To withdraw the minimum is USD 100.
