The city of Williston sets up Bitcoin ATM in airport after cryptocurrency payment adoption

North Dakota’s City of Williston continues its exploration and adoption of the cryptocurrency industry with the installation of a crypto automated teller machine (ATM) in its international airport.

The city’s administration officially announced the installation of the “government-hosted cryptocurrency kiosk” at the Williston Basin International Airport, allowing passengers and non-travelers to buy and sell 40 digital currencies. The list of supported coins includes Bitcoin, Ether, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu (SHIB).

For the initiative, the City of Williston partnered with the crypto service Coin Cloud, which provided its digital currency machines (DCM) to the city. According to the firm, a DCM is “more than just a Bitcoin ATM” as it allows users to buy and sell not only Bitcoin but also 40 other digital assets with cash. “Old school Bitcoin ATMs can’t do all that,” Coin Cloud asserted.
