Its such a beautiful way of sending money worldwide, but to actually get that bitcoin unless someone is sending it to you is very difficult. A bitcoin ATM lets you insert your cash into this teller machine and you receive bitcoin instantly.

There is just one ATM in Germany (in Berlin). Compare that to 15 in Canada. Almost every single Canadian province is now having a Bitcoin ATM. There are 3 in British Colombia, 5 in Alberta, 2 in Quebec, 2 in Ontario and one each in Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Yes. Canada is the world leader as far the Bitcoin ATMs are concerned. The first ever ATM was established there, and right now they have the largest number of them. The US only have 8 ATMs. And there are no Bitcoin ATMs in mainland China, as it is banned there.

Wasn't there supposed to be a bunch of these ATMs in UAE recently? I was really looking forward to the oil kings cashing out and sending money back home to their families and such. I would think getting one of these on every major college campus across the US and the world would be great for priming the next generation for cryptos, similarly to what's going on at MIT albeit w/o the freebies. Tho, after the merits of the MIT case study can be analyzed, that may be the way to expand use too.

There is at least one Bitcoin ATM operating from the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. More ATMs are planned in Sharjah, as well as in other major cities within the Emirates.

I'm glad to hear it!
 I believe that Canada and the U.S. are  the best countries for the development of Bitcoin.  Therefore it is necessary to develop a system of ATMs  in these countries first of all.
