There has been a lot of hub-bub about the new Bitcoin ATM startups promising instantaneous bitcoin exchanges, which is a HUGE advancement for the Bitcoin movement because it will provide convenience and accessibility to the general public for Bitcoin exchanges.

If a Bitcoin ATM is located in your town, would you rather:

A) Go to (or similar), fill out a form with your personal information, print the form, take it to a local MoneyGram location to pay?


B) Head over to a Bitcoin ATM and buy/sell Bitcoins with the push of a few buttons.

Additionally, bitcoin ATMs will not charge a commission fee, whereas most fixed-rate exchangers charge 4-10% per exchange!

What if you're lazy, and want to purchase bitcoins from your home? allows you to link your bank account to their exchange so you can buy/sell bitcoins without leaving the house, but the process takes up to a week, and requires you to trust a 3rd party with your bank account.

Furthermore, true decentralization would start to occur because people wouldn't have to rely on major trading platforms to purchase their coins.

TL;DR: Bitcoin ATMs are faster, cheaper, and more anonymous than all other US-based bitcoin exchanges.
