Is Bitcoin going big in Ukraine?

If a country shows positive demand for Bitcoin, then that means they will demand more Bitcoin ATMs for their users’ convenience. Is this what’s happening in Austria? News reveal today that more and more Austrians are wanting to have more Bitcoin ATMs installed in their country! Isn’t that amazing? Check out more information about it below.

Kuna Cryptocurrency Exchange and Kuna Bitcoin Agency founder Michael Chobanian has announced that there are 150 Bitcoin automated teller machines (BTM) which are scheduled to be installed in Ukraine in 2017.

Of the total, 20-30 ATMs will be installed in the country’s capital of Kiev by the end of the summer.

According to Chobanian, their decision to install the BTMs was due to a request of a customer, as well as the constant demand from Ukrainian entrepreneurs.

He says:

“By the end of the year, around 150 Bitcoin ATMs will be installed throughout Ukraine. This is at the request of one customer who contacted us. Plus, there is a constant demand from entrepreneurs across Ukraine who want to engage in this business, that is, buy terminals and sell cryptocurrencies.”

The plan

According to Chobanian, the planned 150 Cryptomat BTMs will be able to support the sale of such cryptocurrencies as Ether, Waves, Golos and Bitcoin. Customers in the country will be able to buy the digital currencies using the country’s official currency hryvnia.

Chobanian also claimed that the BTMs do not need user identification and can be used by all types of customers. Anyone who wants to do business in BTMs can also do so without securing any license.

Current state of Bitcoin ATM use in Ukraine

Based on data from the BTM tracker website CoinATMRadar, there is only one BTM operating in the country so far a two-way machine that was installed in the port city of Odessa in southern Ukraine in late April.

There are, however, around 4,000 street terminals that are reportedly selling the digital currency Bitcoin. These terminals are not BTMs, but they sell vouchers that can be used by customers to redeem for Bitcoin on the website of Bitcoin service provider BTCU.
