There is a general buy process at a bitcoin ATM:
- Verification step (optional and may vary substantially depending on machine’s type)
- Provide bitcoin address for deposit (optionally can be generated and printed/emailed at some ATMs on the fly, but better to have your own with you before using a machine)
- Insert cash into the ATM
- Confirm operation (bitcoins sent to your bitcoin address at this moment)
This process may vary from ATM to ATM, and this is what we describe for every of the mentioned above bitcoin ATM types. It is important to understand that even when machine’s software/hardware support compliance procedures, they are not necessarily activated, as it depends on the operator of every particular machine.
