Amsterdam Airport’s Bitcoin ATM Allows Travelers To Exchange Euros For Crypto
Schiphol airport has installed a cryptocurrency station in the hopes of making currency exchange more convenient for international travelers
In efforts to make currency exchange more convenient for international travelers, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol introduced a Bitcoin ATM that allows people to exchange leftover Euros from their trip for the cryptocurrencies Ethereum and Bitcoin, or vice versa. The digital coins are deposited directly into the users’ crypto wallet, with a maximum exchange of €100. The installation of the new ATM was made through a partnership with ByeleX Data Solutions BV, a Dutch crypto integration company.
Other airports, like Brisbane, have been looking for ways to include crypto to improve the travel experience; for example, by allowing passengers to use it as payment at terminal retail locations. Including digital currency is a smart move for airports, since it’s becoming a global form of payment that can be used and easily exchanged with any currency.
Schiphol Airport hopes the ATM will provide a useful service and will be testing the demand for the next six months.
