The mainstream adoption of Bitcoin and digital assets has been one of the main goals that the crypto industry set. There have been a lot of moves in this direction, and the crypto space is on the right track.
It’s been just revealed that another Central American nation is seeing the arrival of the first-ever crypto ATM machine.
According to the latest reports coming from the online publication the Daily Hodl, local firm TGU Consulting Group installed the machine called “la Bitcoinera” in an office tower in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.
“The machine allows users to purchase Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) using the lempira, the official currency of Honduras. Users will have to scan their official identification and input their personal data such as a phone number to buy the crypto assets,” according to the same online publication mentioned above.
TGU’s 28-year-old chief executive, Juan Mayen, said that before the installation of the machine, Hondurans had no automated way to buy digital assets.
