Coinsource plans to turn the market by deploying twenty new ATMs in D.C. metropolitan area - twelve in Washington D.C., five in Baltimore and one each in Towson, Oxon Hill and Takoma Park. This move will instantly make Coinsource the largest Bitcoin ATM operator in the region.

“We are expanding the Bitcoin ATM market further than it’s ever been in D.C., offering the lowest rates, exclusive remote enrollment and allowing for at-home account registration.This installment is especially significant to Coinsource, as the philosophy behind decentralized currency is and has always been about giving freedom back to the people. As a company I feel that we have been able to provide financial freedom to the underbanked and unbanked, and I am happy to bring our services to D.C.”, said CMO of Coinsource, Bobby Sharp

First quarter of this year was quite busy for the company – they installed 10 new machines in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Also, last week Coinsource deployed eight new machines in Denver, Colorado.
