Currently, there are 200 Coinstar kiosks inside Walmart stores in the US that allow customers to buy bitcoin. A spokesperson from Walmart said.
Walmart has introduced a pilot program to enable customers to purchase bitcoin at their Coinstar kiosk locations. Walmart is now rolling out bitcoin ATMs across their US stores. Customers who want to buy bitcoin can head here and buy them – all you have to do is insert your cash into the ATM-like machine, select which kind of fiat you want, and hit “pay.”
Coinstar, which has been around for a while and is known for its coin-to-cash machines, is partnering with CoinMe to let customers buy bitcoin through one of their kiosks. It’s worth noting that some of these machines will be added to some local grocery stores and other retailers.
Coinstar kiosks are located in the States at Walmart stores that will allow customers to buy bitcoin. While there are still some regulatory questions that need to be answered.
Earlier this month, Walmart was fooled by a cryptocurrency scam after a fake press release announced a partnership between them and litecoin.
Meanwhile, in the past hour, bitcoin has dropped 3.74% and is currently trading at $63,469.14
Bitcoin’s price has recently surpassed $66,000 after the digital currency received significant attention.
A Bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund (ETF) was recently launched on the New York Stock Exchange. This type of financial instrument has electrified demand for cryptocurrency, which reached an all-time high at $66,976.
