    I found coinatmradar.com as a good source of information that I am looking for. Any other suggestions?

    Let me state why I loved this interview. It allows me to track the narrative of Bitcoin. Narrative is everything. We have all heard about MicroStrategy and we are all thinking that corporate treasuries will be the next wave of adoption. Bit I wondered: Does the average American care? My thought was the average person will care only after the price goes above $100,00. This interview has shown me that I am wrong. If people in Fargo, ND are buying, then BTC is becoming mainstream and this is massively important. Question: is there any place where I can find data (geographic or time series data) about your company or the whole industry? Is such data available about BTC ATMs? This kind of data would be a phenomenal sentiment read on bitcoin. Have you considered making such data public. Any feedback here would be appreciated.

    Do people go to the ATM, purchase a bitcoin from bank account, and walk away with a physical coin?

      Cash into atm, then it sends Bitcoin to your specified address. Some do both purchases and selling of digital assets- bidirectional atms

      That would be awesome if the ATM could pop out a shiny little orange coin with a chip in it containing the BTC, buy straight into cold storage.
