Coinme offering available via Coinstar and MoneyGram
Founded in 2014, Coinme is a US licensed cryptocurrency cash exchange that powers thousands of Coinstar and MoneyGram locations in 49 states, offering the cash purchase of seven cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, Chainlink, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Polygon and Stellar Lumens.
In April, Coinme announced its cash-to-bitcoin network grew by 185% year-over-year to over 21,000 locations nationwide, thus oupacing any bitcoin ATM network in the U.S.
Coinme has recently partnered with Circle to integrate USDC into Coinme’s global cash onramp and offramp ecosystem. The ability to cash in and out of USDC has been made available at thousands of Coinme-enabled locations in the U.S. and, soon, throughout Latin America.
According to the firm, this integration will offer 79 million Americans and 70% of Latin Americans who are unbanked or underbanked a new option to access a vital pathway into digital finance and financial inclusion.
Sending USDC via the Coinme App is free for peer-to-peer transactions and provides near-instant payments, but users can also cash out of USDC via cash pickup locations.
