Bitcoin ATMs are fast becoming one of the most convenient ways to buy and sell Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the U.S. But how much does it really cost to buy and set up a Bitcoin ATM? What is the average Bitcoin ATM price? And how much is too much? 

Different types of Bitcoin ATMs and what they offer 

Before we dive into actual Bitcoin ATM prices, we have to distinguish between the different types of Bitcoin ATMs. This is important because the specific features offered impact the cost.  

Some key elements to think about include, 

  • One-way vs two-way Bitcoin ATMs. A one-way Bitcoin ATM can only be used to buy cryptocurrencies while a two-way machine allows both the purchase and sale of digital assets. In recent years, two-way machines have become the standard as they provide more functionality. 
  • Cryptocurrencies supported. Bitcoin ATMs differ in the cryptocurrencies they support. There are machines that only let customers buy and sell Bitcoin, while others offer a wide variety of coins – such as, Dogecoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum. 
  • Hardware and software. Manufacturers have significant differences in the hardware and software components they use. Bitcoin ATMs are a long-term investment, so premium quality materials are more likely to pay off in the long run.   

Bitcoin ATM Prices: 

Currently, there is a wide range in price for Bitcoin ATMs. Depending on the model and the manufacturer you choose, the price can vary between $6,000 to even $15,000 for a two-way machine. Given the cost differences, it’s important to do research about what machine best suits your needs.
