The number of Bitcoin ATMs increased from 954 in January 2016 to 5,719 by October 2019. Most Bitcoin ATMs, as of September 2019, were located in the United States and Canada. The Bitcoin ATMs located in Europe constituted 21 percent of the global ATM market share. The leading ATM producer worldwide as of September 2019 was General Bytes, with approximately 32 percent of the market share.
However, the future of this virtual currency is yet unknown. If the most important difficulties are overcome, especially those related with regulations on the cryptocurrency market, and people all over the world start to trust in Bitcoin, it might become one of the most popular choices for online payments. As of May 2018, only two percent of Americans owned Bitcoin, but 26 percent said they may buy it in the future.
