Currently, there about 280 Bitcoin ATMs worldwide. This number was reached in less than a year. Some Bitcoin enthusiasts compare Bitcoin ATMs with bank ATMs but forget to mention that there are more than 2 million of them available worldwide. It took 40 years to arrive at this impressive number. Rome was not built in a day.
With advent of new digital currencies such as Bitcoin, their acceptance rate is growing rapidly with each passing day. People are even starting to use bitcoins not only for online purchases, but also in the offline world. For example, in many places you can now pay for a hotel room or cup of coffee in a café with bitcoins. According to coinmap.org, there are currently around 5,000 offline places where you can spend your bitcoins, and that number is quickly growing. Bitcoin software development is also moving forward by leaps and bounds, with many different wallet applications available today.
