Cryptocurrency ATMs have seen a surge in interest amid this year’s Bitcoin frenzy, fuelling concerns the machines could be exploited by “money mules” looking to wash criminal cash.
Installed in shops, petrol stations, the machines swap cash for cryptocurrencies or cryptocurrencies for cash, often in exchange for a hefty fee.
As the price of one Bitcoin surpassed $51,000 (£36,800) this month, cryptocurrency ATMs hit their own milestone, totalling more than 15,000 worldwide for the first time, according to Coin ATM Radar.
That compares to the 6,759 cryptocurrency ATMs there were globally this time last year.
