Bitstop recently announced that it has installed Bitcoin ATMs in five major malls in the US operated by Simon Property Group. The company previously installed a Bitcoin ATM at the Miami International Airport.
Just in time for Black Friday
Customers who need to buy more Bitcoin on Black Friday can do so with new Bitcoin ATMs at five major malls in the US. Three of these malls are located in Florida, namely Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, Miami International Mall and The Avenues in Jacksonville. One is in Buford at the Mall of Georgia, and the fifth is located in Carlsbad Premium Outlets, near San Diego in California. The machines were installed last month.
The Miami-based company’s CEO Andrew Barnard said,
“With the strategic timing of this new installation of bitcoin ATMs at Simon Mall locations, customers can conveniently buy bitcoin while doing their Black Friday and Christmas holiday shopping.”
All 5 malls are operated by the largest mall operator in the country, Simon Property Group. The S&P 100 company runs a host of malls in the US, Asia, and Europe. The group earned over $5.7 billion in revenue last year.
