The number of Bitcoin ATMs installed worldwide has exceeded 6,000; about 6,004 (at the time of the report).
According to the new data from Coin ATM Radar, an online cryptocurrency ATM installation tracker, the United States accounts for the highest number of ATMs, with a whopping sum of 3,834 machines, while Canada follows with 642 machines.
The new figure for crypto ATMs in the world today also includes the first machine installed in Venezuela in October. The report further noted the geographical distribution of new devices, with a section reading:
The United States continues to top the countries list with 239 new machines (6.6% increase) in October. The United Kingdom was second with 10 new installations (4% increase) followed by Greece with 7 new machines (13.5% increase)
Per the report, 5,999 of the machines support Bitcoin (BTC), 3,565 support Ether (ETH), 4,101 support Litecoin (LTC), 2,053 Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and 1,304 support Dash (DASH), including Monero, Zcash, and Dogecoin.
The percentage of Bitcoin ATMs supporting any other than Bitcoin cryptocurrencies increased, and now it is 70.4%. Dash was the most added coin in October with 194 (17.77% increase) followed by Litecoin with 192 (5.01% increase) and Bitcoin with 164 (2.87% increase)
The top manufacturers as of October include Genesis Coin, General Bytes, and Bitstop.
Genesis Coin made about a 5.8% increase with 99 new machines, followed by General Bytes, which produced a 5.3% increase with 96 new installations, while Bitstop made 41.9% increase with 13 new devices.
Unlike this year’s progress, there were roughly 4,000 ATMs installed as of November last year, and 1,800 in November 2017. The huge difference, of course, signals a massive interest and adoption of cryptocurrencies every single year.
On October 16, Coinfomania reported that one of the busiest airports in the United States in terms of international passenger volume, Miami International Airport (MIA), installed a crypto ATM designed for Bitcoin.
