The Big Step

The Public Traffic Company SBB sells Bitcoins over her own ATM's. That means at over 1000 ATMs can Peoples only buy Bitcoins in worth from 20.- up to 500.- chf with Telnumber verification 24h/365d. The SBB has 794 Railway Stations and transport roughly 440 Millions Passenger per Year (41'000km2/8Mio Citziens)! Swiss are Worldmaster in Publictraffic using. At the Picture Below you see only the "knots" of the Railtracksystem in real we have a lot more Stations with ATMs.

Bitcoins Suisse was the first Company they realize ATMs in Switzerland. They ATMs are 2 Way also you can buy and sell Bitcoins with Cash

This is the biggest Bitcoin ATM's Infrastructure in the world. It's a true signal towards bitcoin and blockchain technologies. I like

YES!!! The Best is the SBB has too ATMs at the Borader Citys with Railway Connections. You can buy also in Germany, French, Italy, Austria! Im real Wondering how long the Country will Acctept this!! The new Bank Secret for Switzerland!

The service is only available for those with a Swiss telephone number, I suppose that's due to KYC/AML laws.

Yes its only with swiss numbers. but its not a Problem to get a Prepaidcard from swiss Provider that you can use.

It's encouraging to see Bitcoin being made available at so many ATMs! Making it just as easy for people to obtain and use as other forms of money is ultimately what will drive mass adoption and speed growth. There are a few Bitcoin ATMs where I live, in Tokyo, but they are still rare oddities. I hope other countries will follow Switzerland's example.

Yes i be happy that we are not a part of European Union and we can realize such Innovations. Im sure a lot of Peoples from Boarder Country will come to Boarder Citys and Buy Bitcoins. European Union are not so Openminded like us Gouverment. Bt we are in the middel of Europa! No one Restriction from EU will work so long Peoples can buy in my Country without Problems!

Are there any EU regulations that would make this impossible? I think the laws are pretty much harmonized in the EU and "associated" countries (including Switzerland and Norway), the requirement that one should have a Swiss telephone number and the 500 CHF max limit seems to be consistent, if not worse of the requirements applying to many EU ATMs

No EU has no rights in Switzerland. We have a lot Contracts with EU called "Bilateral Contracts" that meets all Trading Goods Taxes Banking EU/EFTA Peoples they like to Study or work by us and much more. But this ATM Suprise present from SBB meets obly Switzerland. I think about it wehn EU make some Restrictions against Cryptocurrency... im Sure EU need much more Time to Accept it. So EU Ppl they live in the near from Boarder will use this service from SBB Frequently.. We have a second Provider for 2 Ways ATM. There has no KYC Rules and it is allowed to sell Bitcoins up to 2500.- chf Cash per day per Wallet!!! No Verification needed

resteem this Content please! Such Good News need go around the World

I admire this bold move from the SBB!
Thanks for putting the references together. I will watch the proceedings of this closely.
