The world’s eleventh-busiest airport has installed a “test” Bitcoin ATM in a move officials say will better “serve” travellers’ needs.
Schiphol Offers Bitcoin, Ethereum
In a press release on its website June 20, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport confirmed the installation of the machine, which will offer both Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Schiphol thus becomes the first European airport to offer cryptocurrency exchange options via an ATM.
“With the Bitcoin machine we hope to serve travelers because they can easily exchange ‘local’ euros for the ‘global’ Bitcoin or Ethereum,” Tanja Dik, director of consumer products and services commented.
