How to Buy Bitcoin at a Coin Cloud DCM

One of the easiest and most convenient ways to buy Bitcoin is with cash at a self-serve kiosk, like a Bitcoin ATM or Crypto ATM. But for an even faster transaction, with more options and more coins to choose from, upgrade to the more advanced experience of a Coin Cloud Digital Currency Machine (DCM).

Step 1: Find a Machine

Before you can do anything else, you’ll have to find a Coin Cloud DCM near you. Luckily, we provide two easy and efficient ways to do this. You can either visit the Coin.Cloud website or download the Coin Cloud Wallet app, which has a built-in map feature to show you the DCMs near you.

Step 2: Visit Your DCM

Once you’ve found the closest Coin Cloud DCM, press the Start button on the screen. The first thing you’ll see is the terms and conditions of use. Read through these and accept them.

One term we want to highlight is that our machines are not meant for sending digital currency to anyone. The wallet you use to buy or sell must be your own. Of course, after you have purchased your coin and it’s in your own wallet, you can send it to anyone you like. 

Step 3: Get Your Code

Next, you will be prompted to enter your mobile phone number. After you type it in, you will receive a unique identifier code by text message. Type this code into the Coin Cloud DCM screen and press “Proceed”.

Step 4: Buy Bitcoin

You will see four options on the screen: Buy Bitcoin, Sell Bitcoin, Altcoins and Increase Limits. You will be selecting “Buy Bitcoin”.

Now you need to scan your digital wallet’s QR code. To do this, show the QR code to the camera at the top of the machine. You will then be able to enter your cash into the machine. Insert the desired amount of funds you want to transact.

Once your bills have been entered, just press “I’m done” to complete your purchase. The coin you bought will start to process on the blockchain, which usually takes 10 minutes for Bitcoin.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Bitcoin!

Once your coin has been processed on the blockchain, you will receive another text on your mobile device. This acts as your digital receipt and confirms that your new Bitcoin is in your digital wallet.
