How to Buy Bitcoin: Satoshi & Genesis ATMs

Step 1 – Press “Buy Bitcoin” and select the amount from the transaction tiers
Step 2 – enter your mobile phone number into the ATM using the pin pad

Step 3 – If this is your first time visiting the ATM you will get a text with a code to access the ATM. Then you will set up your private PIN number. The ATM may ask you a few questions at this point like your name and address or to scan the barcode on the back of your ID using the infrared scanner next to pin pad.

Step 4 – Select where you want your Bitcoin to be sent. You have 3 choices:

  1. Scan your digital wallet. You can generate a QR code to scan the address of the digital wallet on your smart phone to the infrared scanner next to the PIN pad on the ATM.
  2. Create a new paper wallet. The ATM will generate a receipt with two QR codes (top is public key, bottom is the private key). You can fund this paper wallet at the ATM and download the Bitcoin to a digital wallet at a later time.
  3. Manually enter an address. You can key in your Bitcoin address manually using a keyboard on the touch screen.

Step 5 – Insert cash and take receipt. Your Bitcoin will be sent to the destination you provided.
