Heliopay Installs General Bytes Bitcoin ATM In Christchurch

Bitcoin ATMs keep popping up all over the world, even though most of them are located in the United States and Canada. That is not a big surprise, considering most of the Bitcoin efforts are originating in this area as well. But on the other hand, there are companies like Heliopay, who want to bring more of these devices to locations in the United Kingdom. Their latest Bitcoin ATM has recently been installed at the Blushh Bar in Christchurch.

HelioPay Installs New Bitcoin ATM in Christchurch

Rolling out a network of Bitcoin ATMs across the United Kingdom is not an easy feat, but that is not keeping Heliopay from working hard to achieve that goal. The company has been making a name for itself as the go-to place for digital currency solutions, ranging from staff training to Bitcoin ATMs and point of sale devices.

One of those Heliopay Bitcoin ATMs has made its way to the Blushh Bar in Christchurch, United Kingdom. For some reason, there seems to be a lot of interest from restaurants, bars, and takeaway places who all want to install such an ATM at their premises. This makes a lot of sense, in a way, as these locations attract a lot of foot traffic during the day and evening.

General Bytes are the manufacturers of this particular Bitcoin vending machine, which will give Blushh Bar patrons access to buying Bitcoin in exchange for fiat currency. These devices are attractive in their design, and offer a very intuitive user interface that makes it easy to complete a purchase in a matter of mere minutes.

Novice users who do not own a Bitcoin wallet will be eligible to purchase digital currency from this device as well. All Heliopay Bitcoin ATMs come pre-installed with wallet software, and this particular device is running the Airbitz wallet. As far as mobile wallet solutions go, Airbitz is one of the preferred options for both iOS and Android users all over the world.

As is usually the case with Bitcoin ATMs, they are not available 24/7. But the Blushh Bar in Christchurch offers long opening hours to customers, ranging from 11:00 AM to 12:30 AM Sunday-Thursday, and 11:00 AM until 03:00 AM on Friday and Saturday. Especially their recurring Open Mic Night on Thursdays could prove to be popular evenings for this Heliopay digital vending machine over the next few months.
