Cryptocurrency ATM Lands in Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport

The Airport of Schiphol, located in Amsterdam, is installing a cryptocurrency ATM in their installations, as informed by themselves in a press release released today. With this new addition, the Schipol Airport seeks to be always at the edge of the technology to serve passing travelers carry their money safely in cryptocurrency to other destinies.
The Schipol Airport is the biggest airport in all the Netherlands and one of the biggest traveler hubs in all Europe; with more than 60 million passengers passing through every year. With more of 20% of the passenger going out of Europe, the airport has installed this cryptocurrency ATM as an easy way for travelers to change their euros for cryptocurrencies before abandoning Europe. Tanja Dik, director of Consumer Products & Services at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, stated.

” WITH THE CRYPTOCURRENCY ATM WE HOPE TO SERVE TRAVELERS BECAUSE THEY CAN EASILY EXCHANGE ‘LOCAL’ EUROS FOR THE ‘GLOBAL’ BITCOIN OR ETHEREUM. THIS CAN BE USEFUL BECAUSE THEY CAN NO LONGER MAKE USE OF EUROS IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY.”

To achieve this, the airport partnered with a cryptocurrency services company called ByeleX, ofDutch origin. A subsidiary of ByeleX, called Byecoin was the one that manufactured and installed the ATM, that will be on a trial run for six months; to count the number of travelers that use the service and evaluate if one ATM is enough to satisfy the demand. ByeleX director Herman Vissia stated that they were really delighted to work with the airport to introduce travelers to these new alternative currencies.
The cryptocurrency ATM will be installed in a very busy part of the airport, right in front of the departing gates, where passengers get to catch their flights. With this new service, the Schiphol Airport is the first airport in all Europe to feature a cryptocurrency ATM, but ATMs have been on the rise lately. Even in the Prague Subway, 10 cryptocurrency ATMs were installed last month.
