Bitcoin (BTC) adoption will see a new turn in the United States from a recently announced partnership between the provider of BTC automated teller machines Bitstop and Simon Malls, the largest operator of shopping malls in the U.S. The partnership will see Bitstop install BTC ATMs in many of the mall’s branches.
According to Bitstop co-founder and CEO Andrew Barnard, the decision to do this now is deliberate as it coincides with the holiday season, allowing hundreds of customers transact business and exchange fiat for Bitcoin.
“With the strategic timing of this new installation of Bitcoin ATMs at Simon Mall locations, customers can conveniently buy Bitcoin while doing their Black Friday and Christmas holiday shopping. Bitcoin is the perfect gift for family and friends this holiday season. Our Bitstop Bitcoin ATM mall locations are at the forefront of a trend as Bitcoin and digital currencies become part of the mainstream culture.”
Barnard also added that this new partnership with Simon Mall is just another step in its drive to spread BTC adoption which it began earlier. Bitstop currently has a BTC ATM at the Miami International Airport with more than 130 others in different parts of the country. To further its efforts to create more convenient locations for customers, the company has a goal to install BTC ATMs in over 500 locations by the end of next year.
Paxful and CoinLogiq have previously also pushed for Bitcoin adoption by entering a partnership to install Bitcoin ATMs across Peru and Colombia.
