Setting up your Bitcoin ATMs
Once your machines are purchased and delivered to your business, you can now focus on setting them up.
- ‘Plug and Play’ machines, like the ones that ChainBytes offers, allow customers an easy and accessible way of setting up machines. This means no specific technical knowledge is required for getting your machines in operation. Be careful about this though, as not all manufacturers are the same in this regard!
- You will also need to make sure that you have a steady supply of Bitcoin and cash to meet customers’ needs once you’re up and running.
- To secure a supply of Bitcoin to sell through your machines, you will want to set up a “hot wallet”. Your hot wallet holds the supply of Bitcoin available for customers to purchase through your Bitcoin ATMs.
Take care of compliance issues
Maybe the most intricate part of operating Bitcoin ATMs is compliance. Rules and regulations in respect to cryptocurrency are rapidly changing. This can make it tricky to keep up with compliance obligations. But don’t worry! If you’re not well-versed in crypto law, there are businesses dedicated exclusively to solving these problems.
When you purchase your machines from ChainBytes, you can choose a federal compliance package offered by BTMCompliance, a leading Bitcoin ATM compliance solution provider.
This service not only helps you manage necessary registrations with financial authorities, but also helps you file reports and monitor for suspicious transactions.
Operate your Bitcoin ATMs
Now that your machines are plugged in, filled with cash, connected to your hot wallet, and in compliance with necessary regulations – there’s surely nothing left to do, right?
Well, yes and no!
While operating your Bitcoin ATMs won’t require a lot of time and effort from your part, there are still some everyday tasks you will need to carry out. With companies like ChainBytes, the machine’s dashboard will help you easily monitor the status of your machines along with all activities and transactions.
