Purchasing Bitcoin? Follow These Steps.

Step 1: Get a Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum Wallet

We recommend the following easy-to-use wallets:


Ledger Wallets

Hardware wallets, Multi-Currency, Multi-Apps, Built-in Display, FIDO® Certified U2F, Top-notch Security, Backup & Restoration


70+ coins (incl. BTC, LTC, ETH)

Android only; iOS coming soon


Bitcoin (BTC) only

iOS, macOS; Android, Chrome; Windows, Windows Phone; Linux

You'll need to take this wallet (or a printed QR code) with you, to the machine.


Step 2: Purchasing your Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum

  1. Tap the machine's touchscreen, then read the on-screen prompt.
  2. Select the cryptocurrency you'd like to purchase: Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum.
  3. In your wallet, find your address' QR code
  4. Hold it up to the machine's camera; the machine will scan it.
    This tells the machine where to send your Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum, once you've confirmed your purchase.
  5. After scanning the QR code, insert your CAD or USD* bill(s).
    * Only our Niagara location accepts USD bills
  6. Confirm the amount on the screen to complete your purchase.

Please note that there will be a service fee, which varies based on the Bitcoin market.


Step 3: Receiving your Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum

Once you've confirmed your purchase, your Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum will be sent to the address you provided*.

Transactions are usually instantaneous, but may take anywhere between 10–30 minutes, or even 1–2 hours in rare cases**.

Transactions at our ATMs are 100% anonymous.

* If you are going to send funds to another person, we recommended sending it to your own wallet first—especially if you do not know them personally.
** It is recommended that you wait for at least one confirmation on the Blockchain before spending or sending your purchased funds.
