How Does Bitcoin ATM Machine Work?

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain.

Bitcoin was invented by an unknown person or group of people under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009.

NOTE: WARNING: Bitcoin ATM machines are highly complex and require a high level of technical knowledge to operate. Before attempting to use a Bitcoin ATM machine, please ensure that you understand the risks and security implications of using the machine. Additionally, always be sure to take necessary steps to protect your personal information and funds when using a Bitcoin ATM machine.

Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services.

As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment.
