Consequently, there’s a wide range of things you can do with your Bitcoin, but the first step is to locate where you can spend it.

How to Locate Places That Accept Bitcoin Near Me

Whichever part of the globe you’re in, you can find places that accept Bitcoin near you with the help of a Bitcoin store locator. Think of it as Google Maps on your smartphone which helps you to navigate and even calculates the time it’ll take you to get there from your current location.

Thus, Bitcoin store locators also have the same mode of operation and cover just about any country where Bitcoin is accepted by even one store. Moreover, they allow these businesses to enlist themselves in order to make it easy for their customers to locate them. Now, the platforms you’ll be accessing to make this possible are Coinmap and CoinAtmRadar.


Coinmap strives to give you a preview of the Bitcoin adoption worldwide. This Bitcoin store locator incorporates businesses that have begun accepting Bitcoin since 2013 to the current day. As of April 15, 2019, it reported of 14647 venues where Bitcoin can be exchanged for goods or services.

All you need to do on the map is grab, double click or zoom in on a continent such as South America and then select the country whose stores you want to access. The platform also uses your location to automatically find these stores around you but then, you have to grant it access to detect your location.

On accessing a location, it shows the total number of stores in the area and on further clicking, you get to see whether it is a restaurant, shopping, or car service that is accepting the virtual asset. It also displays when the business began to accept Bitcoin, its address, and phone number.

The image below is one of Prague where the platform reports of 115 stores in the region.

Also worthy of note, is that you can click on ‘Actions’ and then ‘Street view’ to be redirected to Google Maps where you can actually get a pictorial representation of the street the shop is.


This time around, if you want to locate a Bitcoin ATM near you, then it’s CoinAtmRadar you should give a try. The platform provides a Bitcoin ATM Map where the seven continents in the world have been covered. It shows you where to buy and sell Bitcoin and the best part is, you can search based on an address instead of just spending the extra time to view an entire map.

Asides Bitcoin, CoinAtmRadar also shows you regions whose machines allow you to trade Ethereum, Bitcoin cash, Litecoin, Monero, Dogecoin, Dash, and Zcash. You also get to see if the particular machine allows you to buy Bitcoin only, or to buy and sell as well. Now, head to the platform, use the options menu to customize your search.
