Cointelegraph is proud to announce that it has partnered with Coin ATM Radar, which regularly updates a helpful and navigable Bitcoin ATM map, to get the most comprehensive data about new BTMs as they go online. You can also track the rate of BTM installation across the globe with Coin ATM Radar's handy speedometer widget as well as other useful resources.
According to Coin ATM Radar’s data as of Monday, October 20, there are 273 live BTMs around the world, and that number is growing daily (and at an ever-increasing rate). Below are a few that were installed and began operations last week, starting with the United States, which average one new BTM per day last week.
The new BTMs that went live in the US stretched from coast to coast.
