Bitcoin ATMs are the easiest way to access cryptocurrency, for investing and spending anywhere. Let us take a look at how a Bitcoin ATM works and how these machines can help you buy bitcoin..

What Is a Bitcoin ATM?

A Bitcoin ATM is similar to cash ATMs that you would use to withdraw and deposit Australian dollars into the bank. Bitcoin ATMs, Sydney, allow you to take cash and immediately purchase Bitcoin. As a result, you will receive cryptocurrency with the same value as the cash you insert into the machine in less time than it takes to buy crypto on an online exchange.

Bitcoin ATMs are an alternative to buying  Bitcoin online via an exchange or to mining bitcoin, which is expensive and time-consuming. Mining is a labor-intensive process that requires a substantial financial investment so that you can get the tools necessary to mine bitcoin.

Many first time bitcoin buyers, use an online exchange to buy crypto using a credit, debit card or a bank transfer to purchase bitcoin. People choosing to purchase Bitcoin online, find that exchanges take, on average, 2 hours to 2 days to identify and verify the source of income before they allow you to buy bitcoin.  This can be frustrating, time-consuming, and it could mean you miss big short-term gains. Bitcoin ATMs in Sydney  resolve this issue.

Using a Bitcoin ATM is a secure process that takes place in person. It is also immediate, taking five minutes to three minutes at most to verify and buy bitcoin. Once you verify by mobile and add your ID, you can scan your wallet QR and then insert cash to complete the buying process and within two minutes to fifteen minutes you can see the Bitcoin in your hot or cold wallet app.

How Do You Use Bitcoin ATMs in Sydney?

Using a Bitcoin ATM is a straightforward process. All you need to do is walk up to the machine and add your mobile number and then scan your driver’s license, verifying your identity and allowing you to begin the buying process.

You can then open the mobile app for your hot wallet  on your Smartphone. Scan the QR code that appears in the app to tell the Coinguide ATM wallet to send your bitcoins   to your wallet address. If you don’t have a Smartphone, that’s okay- you can also use a printed QR code or a QR code image on your phone to connect to your Bitcoin wallet.

Follow the steps detailed on the machine and insert cash into the blue flashing slot. You’ll receive Bitcoin of equal value to the money that you inserted, which completes the process, and don’t forget your printed receipt before you leave. Now all you need to do is check your wallet, where you can confirm your transaction is completed, and you will see your value in bitcoins. 

You also can use bitcoin ATMs to convert Bitcoin to cash. The process works both ways. Verify with your mobile phone, then click SELL, scan your wallet QR code, tell the machine how much cash you want, and wait for it to give you a QR receipt. Once Coinguide receives your Bitcoin; which can take two (2) minutes to twenty minutes (20) then, you can scan the QR receipt printed from the machine, which allows the machine to dispense the cash amount in exchange for the bitcoin you sold.
