According to data by the crypto ATM monitoring site Coin ATM radar, the number of Bitcoin ATMs scattered around the globe has doubled since January 2021.

The monitoring platform pegs the total number of Bitcoin ATMs globally at 30,000 scattered in over 70 countries. Reportedly, the surge is a result of the rise in crypto prices experienced in 2021.

Coin ATM Radar reports that as at January 2021, 14,016 registered locations were supporting automated teller services for leading cryptocurrencies. As of Oct. 27, the number has hit a staggering 30,011.
