Shoppers in the United States can now buy Bitcoin (BTC) conveniently with cash in stores and Pharmacy chain, through a network of Bitcoin ATMs, cashiers, and kiosks operated by Bosten-based LibertyX.
Going by the announcement, LibertyX that launched its first Bitcoin ATM in about 6 years ago, created a means for people to purchase “Bitcoin on every block” at big chains and small merchants.
Any shopper that manages to download the firm’s store locator app gets means to navigate to the closest store to buy BTC.
The co-founder of LibertyX, Chris Yim, acknowledges Bitcoin (BTC) as one of the most exciting innovations over the past 10 years, pointing out that the company has a keen interest in expanding its reach to give crypto enthusiasts the means to buy BTC conveniently.
“Bitcoin is one of the most exciting innovations over the last decade, but adoption has been limited by trust and accessibility. We wanted to expand our footprint so anyone can buy bitcoin at familiar locations they drive or walk by daily. Now, everyone is only a few miles away from owning bitcoin and becoming part of its global community. Buying bitcoin is as easy as scanning a barcode while shopping for groceries.”
According to Yim, LibertyX also runs conventional ATMs that offer Bitcoin integration, allowing consumers to buy BTC using debit cards.
“At its core, bitcoin is a global and inclusive technology. Anyone with a mobile phone and an internet connection can store, send, receive, and transact value with bitcoin. To that end, LibertyX is proud to offer 20,000 cash-accepting retail locations and 5,000 debit-accepting ATMs across its network. No matter your payment preference, you can conveniently purchase bitcoin from a trusted local store,” Chris Yim added.
