The advantage of owning a Bitcoin ATM over just buying Bitcoin is that the ATM business is not sensitive to bitcoin price volatility. The same percentage per transaction is charged if bitcoin is $1,000 or $10,000, as such Bitcoin ATM revenue is not directly correlated to Bitcoin price. Additionally, the ATMs support multiple cryptocurrencies, so if Bitcoin were to fall out of the spotlight, it is always possible to offer other popular cryptocurrencies.
The amount of time to ROI varies depending on a variety of factors (how much news there is surrounding bitcoin, how long the ATM has been in place, bitcoin price, etc), on average it takes around 8 months. Some locations do very well and investors see ROI within the first month or two. If you are not making money on the Bitcoin ATM then neither are we. If a certain location isn’t performing after a period of time, then we will likely relocate it to a better location.
EasyBit has been around since Dec of 2013. DPP LLC is the operating arm of EasyBit for the USA. DPP LLC is a Delaware corporation which is registered to do business in over a dozen states (everywhere that we operate Bitcoin ATM’s).

Yes, we currently offer opportunities to invest in Bitcoin ATMs in the United States. It is possible for people to invest from any country. You can still get involved in profiting in the Bitcoin ATM business by investing in one of our Bitcoin ATM machines and we will find a great business location to place it, within the U.S. We currently have a waiting list of business owners looking to host one of our Bitcoin ATMs at their location.
Bitcoin ATMs owners receive 33% of the profit of each machine (the net monthly revenue) for the life of the machine. Additional details are outlined in the Investor Agreement.
While in general we prefer to choose the locations, investors who have a location(s) in mind, should make that clear in the beginning when contacting us. We prequalify all of our hosting locations based on hours of operation(12 hrs min.), easy access to location, parking and, whether the location is in a crypto friendly area.
The ATMs can offer Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and, Ethereum.
Profits and investor payouts are calculated each month on the first business day of the month. Payments are then made on the 5th. There are two options for payment:
Investors will also receive a statement via email each month showing their total income as well as some other statistics (number of customers, etc).
We have a long waiting list of locations that want machines, so matching a location to an investor is immediate. Due to manufacturer backlog, machines usually ship 3-4 weeks after the order is placed.
The markup between the large exchanges and Bitcoin ATMs varies, but is usually around 10-15%. The main determining factors for the price are market volatility and demand.
End users can transact as little as $5 and as much as $9,000 a day using our Bitcoin ATM machines. If there is a request for a higher transaction amount, we require additional information from the end user to verify their probity and integrity. We adhere to strict KYL/AML regulations as a Bitcoin ATM Operator.
