A Bitcoin ATM has been opened in Israel. The ATM was opened on the 30 March at the “Bitcoin emBassy”, a non-profit group based in Tel Aviv.
The new machine, operated by the Bits of Gold company, enables users to purchase Bitcoin credits in exchange for cash.
“I am proud that the embassy has made the first bitcoin vending machine available in Israel. This is part of our mission, to make bitcoins accessible to the general public,” Ayal Segev, Bitcoin emBassy.
The world’s first Bitcoin ATM was installed in Canada in November 2013.
