Luckily, the main International airport of the Netherlands will now allow its passengers and visitors to convert those “leftover euros” for Bitcoin and Ethereum. As to serve better traveller’s needs, the airport has installed Bitcoin ATM.
New Bitcoin ATM at Airport Schiphol, the Netherlands International Airport
The World’s 11th busiest airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has released a Press Release on June 20, that it the airport has installed ATM machine which offers both BTC and ETH. However, Schiphol is the first ever European airport to offer crypto exchanges over an ATM.
The director of Consumer Products & Service at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Tanja Dik said;
“Schiphol is constantly looking for ways to innovate and provide optimum service to passengers. With the Bitcoin ATM, we hope to provide a useful service to passengers by allowing them to easily exchange. Thus the ‘local’ euros for the ‘global’ BTC and ETH. That can be beneficial if, for instance, it’s not possible to spend euros in their home country”.
However, the ATM machines are located at the Arrival Hall 2 in the Schiphol Airport and also from walkway to Departure Hall 1 and 2, and the Schiphol Plaza.
This new approach has been introduced in partnership with Dutch Company, ByeleX Data Solutions BV. Moreover, the company provides cryptocurrency payment integration services to businesses.
Herman Vissia, Byelex director quoted;
“We are happy that Schiphol is willing to join us in exploring ways to introduce passengers to the new cryptoreality”.
The province supports world one fifth total ATMs, although the vast majority remains in North America. However, the Netherland has 20 operational crypto ATMs at present.
Earlier in May, Australia based Brisbane Airport has begun accepting various digital assets and labeling it has a one of the friendliest crypto airport globally.
