What Is the Cheapest Bitcoin Machine?

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.

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. Bitcoin can also be held as an investment.

NOTE: WARNING: Investing in Bitcoin is a risky venture and you should always do your research before investing. The cheapest Bitcoin machine may not necessarily be the best option for you. Be aware that some machines may contain hidden fees and other risks associated with them. Do your due diligence to ensure that the machine you select is safe, secure and reliable.

According to research produced by Cambridge University in 2017, there are 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin.

The first bitcoin ATM was installed in October 2013 in Vancouver, Canada. The machine allowed customers to exchange bitcoins for Canadian dollars.

As of February 2014, there were over 700 bitcoin ATMs worldwide.
