Coinme announced its entry into the greater Sacramento area by adding more than 100 Bitcoin purchase points at Coinstar® kiosks in Safeway, Save Mart and Food Maxx supermarkets. The Coinstar kiosks make up the largest network for purchasing Bitcoin for Sacramento area consumers.
“Sacramento promises to be one of Coinme’s strongest markets for Bitcoin in the United States,” said Neil Bergquist, Coinme co-founder and CEO. “It’s very gratifying to meet the growing customer demand through our relationship with Coinstar, and we couldn’t ask for a better partner to help people access and utilize the power of digital currency.”
“There are 3,000 Coinstar kiosk locations across the country that have the Bitcoin purchase functionality and the consumer response has been very positive. We’re happy that the expansion continues with access now in the Sacramento area,” said Jim Gaherity, CEO of Coinstar.
Coinstar kiosks allow customers to easily purchase Bitcoin. The transaction is done in four simple steps that only require a phone number and cash in U.S. dollars.
