Coinme, the largest fully licensed cryptocurrency exchange in the US, today announced its launch in Florida with over 300 bitcoin launches. Coinstar® kiosks located in select Winn Dixie, Fresco y Mas, Harveys and other grocery stores throughout the state, from small towns to large cities including Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando and Tampa. For Florida residents, the expansion makes buying bitcoin with cash as easy as going to your local grocery store.
“Our team worked with state regulators to launch Coinme at Coinstar kiosks across the state, and we are thrilled to be licensed to offer cash to buy Bitcoins to Florida residents,” said Neil Bergquist, co-founder and CEO of Coinme. “Through our partnership, we can continue to expand into new areas to meet the ever-growing demand for affordable ways to buy digital currencies.”
A recent survey sponsored by Coinstar® found that 23% of people who would like to buy cryptocurrency would do so at Bitcoin ATMs or kiosks. In addition, almost one in five respondents said they would prefer to buy cryptocurrency for cash, and more than half advised to buy it as an investment.
“The current mainstream demand for bitcoin has attracted many aspiring investors who need easy and secure access to funds to buy it,” said Jim Garity, CEO of Coinstar. “We really wanted to put Coinme in our Florida kiosks and now our customers can easily get it through several nearby Coinstar-backed Coinme outlets.”
