ATM机网络发展加速比特币普及使用

Coinsource是美国最大的比特币自动柜员机网络平台,在全美共运营着117台比特币自动柜员机。ABC15 Arizona(美国广播公司在亚利桑那州的分支机构)等当地媒体消息称,该平台日前在亚利桑那州又安装了一台比特币自动柜员机。

Coinsource联合创始人鲍比·夏普在接受采访时表示,比特币自动柜员机在初期尝试者和比特币普通用户中受到追捧,但由于比特币不是现实物体,所以在商家间的推广不是很理想。

除此之外,比特币交易平台和服务提供商需要实施和整合严格的用户知悉制度(Know Your Customer,KYC)和反洗钱(AML)系统,要求客户提供可能较难获得的银行对账单和许可证等文件。

 

全球通用

同亚利桑那州等地一样,全球许多地区也安装了比特币自动柜员机。在接受Cointelegraph采访时,韩国的两家比特币自动柜员机运营商就指出,比特币自动柜员机在寻求将比特币转为现金的旅客中非常受欢迎。

由于大多数交易平台要求用户在各自国家的拥有银行账户,所以在不同的地区注册比特币交易并将比特币变现有一定难度。因此,不需要用户其他信息的比特币自动柜员机是旅行者不错的选择。

由于上述原因,大多数的比特币自动柜员机都被放置在商场或热门旅游景点。比特币自动柜员机运营商和制造商已经感受到比特币自动柜员机在那些无法达到交易平台要求的用户中越来越受欢迎。

比特币正在逐步成为银行系统和全球金融系统的替代金融网络,对于许多用户而言,银行凭证和账户的要求条款是一种压力和负担。

合作伙伴

目前,包括Coins.ph在内的一些区域比特币服务提供商也在积极与银行以及银行自动柜员机运营商合作,为用户提供利用比特币自动柜员机将比特币兑现的更好方式。

例如,Coins.ph已经与菲律宾信安银行(Security Bank)合作,允许客户通过全国范围内的银行自动柜员机将比特币变现。在韩国,Coinplug与晓星集团合作,使用户能够通过便利店自动柜员机兑换比特币。

在整个美国和全球范围内,对比特币自动柜员机和支持加密资产的自动柜员机的需求正在快速增长。像Coinsource这样的公司正在不断生产比特币专用的自动柜员机以提高效率,而比特币服务提供商正试图与更多的银行合作,以便利用现有的银行自动柜员机为更多的用户提供比特币自动柜员机服务。

There appears to be an ICO frenzy across the Blockchain industry. Everywhere you look, a new product is created with a corresponding ICO launch.

While there are genuine products and judiciously executed ICOs, there have been reports of insincere setups that only succeed in reaping the masses of their wealth.

Industrial stage of development

Despite noting this as an unfortunate development, Helium co-founder, Jason Cassidy identifies the ICO scenario to be common with other developing industries.

According to Cassidy, whenever a new industry reaches a certain level of market penetration, the floodgates open up and a host of actors enter into the space. While many of these individuals have good products or services backed by good intentions, human nature dictates we will see a mix of participants.

Cassidy notes that the bad actors take advantage of the illiteracy of their victims to exploit them and steal their resources.

Cassidy says:

“Not every one of these people will act in good faith, and whenever there exists a collection of uneducated investors you can be sure the charlatans are lurking close by.”

In order to be safe from bad actors, Cassidy advises new investors to ICOs to keep three things in mind when contemplating investing:

1. What is the technology/platform/currency addressing?

There must be a clear 'need' that is being fulfilled, a market for the solution and ideally the long term vision to get it there. Read the whitepaper, look at the roadmap and research the industry the currency and Blockchain are addressing.

2. Who makes up the team?

At the end of the day, the project will go as well as the team that is behind it giving leadership. Background check the team, look for transparency, previous work experience and signs of emotional maturity. If there is a lack of business experience on the core team, how will they handle adversity or a large increase of wealth (emotional maturity is needed here).

3. Listen to your gut

At the end of the day, one can pour over hours upon hours of research. Smart investors will learn to trust their gut instinct. If it looks like a risky investment, it likely is. This is the Wild West 2.0 right now and one of the emotions such as fear and greed, vet the team and the technologies and you should position yourself for success.
