Bitcoin point-of-sale (POS) DigitalMint provider has entered into an agreement with EMoney Commerce to provide more consumers across the Midwest with access to cryptocurrency through ATMs. The first phase of the EMoney launch calls about 10 Bitcoin ATMs at convenience stores in central and southern Illinois. 27 more ATMs have been scheduled to open in the coming months in Illinois and Missouri.
Unlike DigitalMint, EMoney has vast expertise and entrepreneurial spirit in the cryptocurrency market to increase opportunities. DigitalMint's expansion comes around a year after launching its big pilot program alongside Circle K in Nevada and Arizona. DigitalMint uses physical kiosks, ATMs and teller windows to make crypto-currency transactions more open to the general public. Alone in 2019, in addition to Circle K, the company collaborated with a number of other like-minded companies such as Digital Currency Systems, Answers Etc., and SecureCheck Cashing Systems to develop its network of more than 350 locations, spanning 26 U.S. states.
Established in 2014, DigitalMint, a Chicago-based crypto-currency company, allows customers to buy Bitcoin via physical kiosks and teller windows. DigitalMint worked with over 350 brick and mortar outlets across the United States.
