Bitstop ATMs Charge 13.5% Fees

Bitstop’s product is a Bitcoin-focused Automated Teller Machine that provides the services of exchanging cash into bitcoins across the United States. It requires users to register with an ID document or a mobile device for verification. Users, after completing the required verification will scan QR codes for deposits to be made.

It takes only about 3 secs for bitcoin to be bought with Bitstop ATMs, however, the downside of the affair is a 13.5% charge on using such machines. This is significantly higher than the transaction fees charged on bitcoin exchanges. Also, the high transaction fees are a norm across major ATMs which makes them a less favorable option for buying bitcoin.
