Every day the accessibility of Bitcoin in the US grows as more services expands in its territory. The American bitcoin ATM network has arrived to Washington DC metropolitan area, adding 20 new instalments to the almost 200 machines part of the network.
This incursion into the capital territory means a new milestone to the Texas-based company Coinsure, which just announced the twenty new machines that will be installed across the District of Columbia and Maryland, spread on strategic areas.
In Washington DC restaurants, bookshops and other small-local businesses have been accepting bitcoin as way of payment since 2017. This emergent support makes DC a good shoot to expand the bitcoin and its benefits, and “make it more accessible to the people” as Sheffield Clark, CEO of Coinsource, said
“We are meeting Washington D.C. at an inflection point, where regulators are looking at the value and potential of decentralized currencies and blockchain technology”
According to official the new Washington DC network will be distributed like this: a dozen in Washington DC, five in Baltimore, one in Towson, one in Oxon Hill, and one in Takoma Park. Locations that, according to Coinsource research, are the more accessible to the current bitcoin users in DC.
“All innovation over time has passed through our Nation’s Capital in one way or another, and we are happy to be now servicing Washington D.C. and the surrounding communities so that they can have easy access to buying and selling Bitcoin.”
Coinsource’s network has expanded rapidly over the US territory in the lasts years over 180 machines have been installed in more than 18 states, including the recently added 10 bitcoin ATM Machines in Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts in early February
“We are expanding the Bitcoin ATM market further than it’s ever been in D.C., offering the lowest rates, exclusive remote enrollment and allowing for at-home account registration. This installment is especially significant to Coinsource… As a company I feel that we have been able to provide financial freedom to the underbanked and unbanked, and I am happy to bring our services to D.C.”
