Interview with Chris McAlary, the CEO of Coin Cloud

In this podcast, you will hear Mike Townsend interviewing Chris McAlary, the CEO of Coin Cloud, which is the world’s largest Bitcoin ATM Company with over 800 machines (and growing), all of which allow two-way transactions of Bitcoin and 29 altcoins.

Being that Coin Cloud has a plan to overcome the 1000 ATMs margin in the next couple of months, it is logical that their plans are also related to expanding overseas. According to Chris, their next country will be Brazil. As he explains, it is especially suitable for Crypto ATM business because of its cash-intensive economy, where more than 50% of people get their income in cash, whereas in the United States that percentage is around 10%. Of course, the United States continues to be the priority of all Crypto ATM operators because of the extensive adoption of cryptocurrency by the customers and regulators as well.

CASH INTO CRYPTO – Bitcoin ATM’s and The Coin Bros

In this video, you will see the first part (out of two) of the interview with Cory from CoinBros. In this part, he will talk about the CoinBros as a company and explain how Bitcoin ATMs work.

After telling a story on how he started to gain interest in Bitcoin while he was a paramedic and finally started a Bitcoin ATM business in 2017, Cory was asked to explain how is cryptocurrency stored in the machine.

He explains that you can link the ATM directly to the exchange via API or you can use the cold storage wallet. Linking directly to an exchange is less risky because you buy or sell crypto live and that way you cannot become a victim of volatility.
