More Options to Buy Bitcoin in Argentina

For those looking for the bitcoin ATM’s, Buenos Aires has the only ones currently in Argentina. Currently, the fee’s don’t appear attractive when buying or selling bitcoin using the few ATM’s in the country. The company is planning to add up to 30 bitcoin ATM’s in Argentina, what their timeline for that is still vague.

The Argentina bitcoin meetup group has 6,000 members, some of whom will probably sell bitcoin to people like a back alley drug deal.

There is also the possibility to buy bitcoin in Brazil like people in Colombia, Venezuela and Peru do from time to time.
