The Mexican Senate building gets its own Bitcoin ATM as the country prepares to regulate cryptocurrencies.
Bitcoin is becoming more widely accepted around the world and the number of cryptocurrency ATMs is increasing despite the crackdown.
Mexico has gotten another Bitcoin ATM, this time in its Senate building.
On April 26, a Bitcoin (BTC) ATM was installed in the Senate building in Mexico City.
The country already had thirteen other ATMs of this type in Mexico City, Tijuana, Cancun, Guadalajara, Aguascalientes, San Miguel de Cozumel, and Culiacan.
Indira Kempis, Mexican senator, shared on her Twitter account a photo of the new ATM, saying that its installation is a sign of “financial freedom, inclusion and education in Mexico.”
The initiative was praised by the cryptocurrency ecosystem on social networks, with some senators even pointing out that it was already possible to buy and sell bitcoin in the ATMs installed in the Senate.
Legislators agree that now is a good time to “modernize” the economy of the future.
Bitcoin is still a young technology. But adoption happens everywhere and in some cases even in places where you would not think it could ever happen.
