YES! Aruba has a Bitcoin ATM. I was happy to hear that our good friends at Linda’s Dutch Pancakes had a Bitcoin ATM located inside. So i headed over there for some BTC!
Update 17 July 2019 – Bitcoin News Aruba has been informed that this ATM is not working at the moment please visit Bitcoin ATM at Local Store Post
Before i give you a step by step, however, a short introduction of a Bitcoin ATM is important.
A Bitcoin ATM is much like the traditional ATM that dispenses fiat currencies where you use your debit card to withdraw USD, EUR, INR etc. However, unlike the traditional fiat ATMs, some Bitcoin ATMs actually allow you to withdraw bitcoins from it. Some help you convert your bitcoins into fiat currencies, while there are also some that help with both! The one on the island you can only BUY at the moment.
Quick Step by Step:
- Press buy Bitoins on the screen
- Scan you Bitcoin address (If you don’t have, make an address from here)
- Insert USD bills. (This machine only accepts USD)
- Click send Bitcoins.
And your wallet will be credited! it is that easy.
