i think Europe is also a big supporter of bitcoin, i know so many people who are really using bitcoin and are also good supporter of  bitcoin,
Europe kills crypto atm, this might be news that doesn't really see the real situation that some European countries really support bitcoin, we can see there might be a big game to be able to shake crypto, and there are certain things we don't understand with this big game, but essentially Europe is a bitcoin supporter, it's impossible to destroy it.

It seems you won't be buying bitcoins for cash anymore soon.
A limited amount or if you do a kyc aml:

Being a KYC compliant doesn't mean it will kill the crypto ATM but the EU just want it to make it safe in the future that the illegal people will not be able to easily use the ATM for their illegal activities and i see nothing wrong about that. If you want to buy huge Bitcoin then just do the KYC, there is nothing wrong about that as long as we have nothing to hide and the ATM is legit.

In my opinion, Europeans did not kill the crypto ATM business even though it used KYC, as I did to protect users from being used for money laundering. I see Europe is quite good at welcoming the presence of crypto and making it more developed.

The more that they feel that they have made the system safe for all and kept the Crypto clean of illegal activity, the less overall attention that they will be giving the system. Give them a few feet and then we take a few miles. Little by little it is going to happen.
it is impossible for Europe to kill Bitcoin, because European countries are the main supporters of Bitcoin, what happens is that Europeans may start to register and will closely monitor the use of bitcoins that sell and buy through cash machines, because they might start to monitor crime. it could happen through this money withdrawal machine.

As I have seen in my travels, there is a huge spread of ATMs in some euro countries, where even the normal Bank ATMs will give you Bitcoin. In Austria you can get Bitcoin in every post office too.

The Bitcoin ATMs in my experience do have some flaws like they can often be out of service.

There still is room for lots of new opportunity, like why not have second hand markets accept Bitcoin? This way more people can learn about Bitcoin and trade goods they dont need anymore for Bitcoin (and vice versa). Plus there is no way governments could regulate that and it also eliminates the need for Cash.

Europe is quite friendly with bitcoin so it will not kill the bitcoin atm, the possibility that the bitcoin atm function cannot be comprehensive and seems to need repairs to be used properly.

yes, but on page 30 i see monthly limit of 150 euro and something about 50. thats insane low.

That's true! That's insanely low as a monthly limit. But thank GOD that EU at least has access to the crypto ATMs. In India, people get arrested for installing crypto ATMs. An Indian exchange Unocoin owner got arrested for the same reason.

If you are buying cryptos from a legally registered exchange or ATM, you are expected to pass KYC and comply with the norms of AML framework. Unless the ATM is run by a gangster from his own safehouse, you can't remain anonymous if you use crypto ATMs. Anonymous crypto ATMs look good in imagination but not in reality! What EU is trying to do is similar to slow poisoning the entire game! But the situation should recover in 2019 as more countries will open up their doors to cryptocurrencies.

Europe is supported to cryptocurrency so it will not kill the bitcoin or any crypto coins. After the KYC verification, you can use the ATM machine. This technique is used for stoping the illegal users. When the crypto increase then the Crypto ATM also increase around the world. CBANX has Also launched the Bitcoin ATM.

Noticed the OP is over 2 years ago, and fast forward to 2019 we're entering full implementation of the 5th Anti Money Laundering Directive that will include cryptocurrency-related financial institutions. Doubt this has any real impact on Bitcoin ATMs in Europe, but you know, it's still the biggest location of ATMs outside of North America.

Just looking at the biggest one (Gen Bytes) in my area (15 mins away and actually the only one in my city), you can still buy EUR 5,000 without need for verification. That's more than I'll ever need from a machine, tbh!

My opinion is that if this service becomes popular, they will reconsider the restriction on the purchase of Bitcoin.
P.S. And KYC is not so terrible as everyone is afraid of him ...

Correct, OP posted last two years ago, now we are in the year of 2019 and probably the country of EUROPE having improvement in buying Bitcoin since they are now friendly and supported on cryptocurrency(Bitcoin). Besides, Berlin in Europe is the Bitcoin capital of the country and there's an owner of a company there introduced Bitcoin payments in 2012 (probably until now) and has been fascinated by cryptocurrencies for a very long time. So, there's no reason they are killing crypto ATM's businesses there as long as you can be passed the KYC verification.

do you mean we need to pass the kyc verification before we can use these btc powered atm's ?  ouch , that might feel bad especially if you dont have the necesary i.d's needed  .   at first ,  i though that atm's are automatic in which you only need to insert your card and the money will dispense according to your inputed amount   .

europe might be banning cryptos but this cant affect too much on the price because majority of the countries nowadays are now legalizing the use of cryptos .   crypto atm business can still grow and will be used by many people aside from europe  .

Government acceptance for bitcoin/cryptocurrency related projects and so on will require a maximum amount of team effort. General numbers of countries won't accept bitcoin and will keep on regulating it to avoid decentralization well, in fact, it would highly affect the economy of each country if they will support the project without the economy benefitting from the project and being centralized. SO in order for the cryptocurrencies to be accepted, the first thing to do is to make it at least fully regulated and secured and in order to do that we have to initiate it.

This is already concluded that Europe is really not against Bitcoin ATM that they are just taking some preventive measures thats its look like  KYC documents to ensure that people who used the ATM are legit people. In fact more and more Bitcoin ATM are being installed and more nations in Europe are supporting Bitcoin and the whole crypto currency.

I actually posted a discussion about it on reddit;
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/afiu34/eu_bitcoin_atm_operators_not_in_compliance_with/

So far it it still gives atm operations the option for anonyms transactions, but I would set is as low as 250 EUR for buy per crypto addr and 150 for crypto to cash per btc addr - I am still waiting for laywer to confirm that this would be a good estimation without getting into trouble - I am also awaiting my member state to impl. the AMLD5 into local laws, so I can see if they make it stricter or if they write is as vague as possible, just like the EU Directives :/

Well, hopefully we can say good bye to fiat and forget about the EU Directive some day - if you read the EU future plans then they want businesses and people to register at central database with their BTC addresses, the EU are being morons - FIAT is the problem, not our transparent bitcoin...

I was wondering why a continent that is at the front of bitcoin support would be clamping down on what it is supporting. Bitcoin ATM is a push to make bitcoin usage more viable to people and make it more close and accessible.

Europe is forced to impose reasonable restrictions that would prevent the use of cryptocurrency for illegal purposes, including the possibility of financing terrorism. Recently, the countries of the European Union have been periodically subjected to terrorist attacks and the measures taken are generally justified.
However, the states of Europe are very tolerant and friendly towards the implementation and legalization of cryptocurrency.

@Falgorn: Just so you understand what you are saying, this is the future EU you want to be in:
*Buying a new coffee maker* Cashier: Sir, due to current global situations, we request that you show us your personal documents and stand still for 10 seconds for a selfie with your ID card, thank you - here is your change back...

Fiat(paper) != traceable
Bitcoin = pseudo-traceable.

So less reason to ask for KYC when dealing in crypto, there is public traceability, compared to Fiat where none is.
(Btw; != means; NOT - Math is important, stay in school  Wink)
