Selling Bitcoin at an ATM to get cash

Before you go...

Bring a mobile phone

You will need to receive a security code via text message.

1. Find a 2-way machine

Although we are moving towards allowing selling at all locations, currently some do not.

Find a location that dispenses cash.

2. Choose the Sell Bitcoin option (or the equivalent for your cryptocurrency)

5. Send coins

An amount of coins and an address (QR code) to send it to will appear on screen. Scan the code with your wallet app and transfer the coins.

If you are selling Bitcoin:
Recommended transaction (miner's) fee = 104 satoshis/byte (0.00104 bitcoins/kilobyte)

We strongly advise against using no/low priority fees when sending your bitcoin as doing so can delay the confirmation of your transaction (and the dispensing of your cash) by several hours or even days when the Bitcoin network is experiencing a back-log of unconfirmed transactions or high transaction volume.

At a minimum, set your transaction priority fee to "Normal", but we recommend "High priority".

6. Wait for confirmation

We're waiting for your deposit to confirm on the blockchain. You may safely leave the machine, but you will soon receive a text message notifying you your transaction has confirmed.

7. Redeem

When you receive your notification, go back to the machine. Press the Redeem button. You will be prompted to enter your mobile phone number again to receive a new security code. Once you receive that code, enter it at the machine and your cash will be dispensed.
