On the 12 of septembre, was installed in Madrid, a cash dispenser of this criptodivisa - the third party in the capital, that has been made by the Spanish company BTC Facil, whereas ATMs Bitcoin Exchange has been the manager of his installation.

The management of the Shopping Center La Castellana 200 assures that in a beginning “they” “were not” “knowing” the possibilities that the cashier could offer of bitcoins for the clients, but as soon as “they” “investigated” on the product, it looked like to them a “positive” offer.

” Still today most of the population does not know the bitcoin or considers it to be distant, but we were not conscious of the number of public inspectors that already it has this virtual currency “, they affirm from the Shopping Center and make clear that, for this reason, they decided ” to try and since it is installed always there are people playing “

Also they indicate that “still it is early” to realize an estimation brought near on the use of the cashier, but they stress that they are ” very satisfied ” with the taken decision bearing in mind ” the interest that BTC Facil generates ”  they underline in the document that they send to the companies that request his services that ” to destroy the bitcoin would be so complicated like to destroy Internet “

The ‘bitcoin’, in phase of (slow) growth

One of the founding partners of  BTC Facil,  Miguel  Ortuño, makes clear that the criptodivisa is still in ” an early phase “, as it happened ” in the 90s with the use of the fax and the unknown e-mail of the epoch “.

Likewise, the company recognizes the disadvantage of bitcoin for his illicit use to realize tax evasions, thefts and swindles, though it affirms that this use is ” very minority ” and that they are realized like with ” money in metal-worker “.

From this type of cashiers, the clients can withdraw the money of his account or digital purse of bitcoin in the shape of Euros or deposit money in Euros to turn it into virtual currency.

The high value of the currency does not suppose ” any difficulty ” for the payments of small quantities, assures Ortuño, since the bitcoin can divide ” in hundred million parts ” and supposes a “revolution” for the new models of business, provided that the payments work without commissions.

” As soon as they begin to know the advantages of the bitcoin it will be of common use and it is something that also we want to show in the cash dispensers, which they include tutoriales of how the currency works “, has added the founding partner of BTC Facil
