The revolutionary movement of the financial industry from fiat into digital currency seems to be on the run as the acceptability and recognition which Cryptocurrency is garnering in various sectors across the world keeps increasing with the campaigns it is getting in the Aviation industry.
Similar to this is the news that unveiled yesterday that a dual functional ATM that permits the traveler to convert Euro into the world top two Cryptocurrency Bitcoin and Ethereum has been installed at the Amsterdam international airport, Schipol.
According to the disclosure which was released on Schipol website, the installed Euro-Crypto ATM machines that grant exchange between Euro and Cryptocurrency will be installed at the airport for trial over a period of six months to determine whether the demand for the service really exist.
The director of Consumer Products & Services at the airport, Tanja Dik in the statement made known that Schiphol is making all effort to provide useful services for customers through various innovations.
“Schiphol is constantly looking for ways to innovate and provide optimum service to passengers.”
“With the Bitcoin ATM, we hope to provide a useful service to passengers by allowing them to easily exchange ‘local’ euros for the ‘global’ cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and Ethereum. That can be beneficial if, for instance, it’s not possible to spend euros in their home country,” Dik said.
While the ATMs were tactically sited at the Arrival Hall 2 to give Departure travelers from Halls 1 and 2 easy access, the ATMs were located not to only serve passengers but also Schiphol Plaza visitors, so that they can also exchange their euros for either Bitcoin or Ethereum.
The release stated that the development was initiated by a joint effort between Schiphol and a Netherlands based company, ByeleX.
“We are excited that Schiphol is willing to join us in exploring ways to introduce passengers to the new cryptoreality,” ByeleX director, Herman Vissia noted.
Known for offering crypto ATM machines, the software solution focused company is said to be initiating the services through its subsidiary, Byecoin which is specialized in crypto technologies and services.
As analyst continues to weigh in on the latest the development as a welcomed achievement that will promote the financial industry, there has also been records of such in the past.
Even though Schipol is regarded as the first European airport to offer this service, Australian based Brisbane Airport is flagged with the milestone of being the first airport to accept Cryptocurrency across the world.
