The number of Bitcoin ATMs increased from 954 in January 2016 to 2,053 by January 2018. Most Bitcoin ATMs, as of January 2018, were located in the United States and Canada. The Bitcoin ATMs located in Europe constituted 20.42 percent of the global ATM market share. The leading ATM producer worldwide as of January 2018 was Genesis Coin, with 36.01 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 online payment means. As of August 2017, roughly 40 percent of the Americans were willing to use Bitcoin for transactions and making purchases.
