First Bitcoin Capital Corp (BITCF) Installing Automated Check-Cashing and Bitcoin ATMs Into California High Traffic Markets

Spotlight Companies |

First Bitcoin Capital Corp (OTC: BITCF) and Simple Automated Money, Inc. (SAMCO) announced today that SAMCO will provide automated check-cashing kiosks through BITCF locations in Northern California. SAMCO's Web-enabled automated check-cashing kiosks merge unique and exclusive check cashing capabilities to provide unbanked consumers with a fast and confidential check-cashing experience.

In a pilot test program, BITCF has ordered S.A.M. Kiosks to integrate Bitcoin ATM into self-service check cashing kiosks nationwide. BITCF is conducting the pilot test and studying customer acceptance of the check cashing kiosks with 3 units in Northern California. Company anticipates beginning a national rollout later in 2017. During the pilot, BITCF will offer discounted check-cashing services and will promote the new service through online advertising, in-store signs and special events ... all aimed at consumers who use alternative check-cashing services.

Additionally, BITCF announced that development will begin to integrate Bitcoin buy/sell capabilities throughout a nationwide network of 85 SAMCO kiosks now in place and growing. Services the company plans to integrate will include BITCOIN ATM transactions, money orders and transfers as well as check cashing through touchscreen, bio-metric secure access.

BITCF is an exclusive distributor of SAMCO check-cashing kiosks in California for the medical cannabis dispensaries and is expanding to include other high traffic retail locations, such as C-Stores and supermarkets. It will offer competitive products and services allowing consumers to cash any type of check: government-issued, payroll, business and others. Studies have shown that offering check-cashing services on premises to be an effective method to increase store product sales.

According to FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) recent 2015 National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households, indicates that more than 7 percent of households in the United States were unbanked in 2015. This proportion represents approximately 9 million households. An additional 19.9 percent of U.S. households (24.5 million) were underbanked, meaning that the household had a checking or savings account but also obtained financial products and services outside of the banking system. By offering check cashing, BITCF's ATM Division expects that Kiosk location owners will increase their customer base significantly.

Kiosk use is simple and fast: customers insert an ID card and check, validate their identity through on-board fingerprint technology. The S.A.M. Kiosk validates the information, verifies customer identity, performs an online check authorization and issues an approval or decline back to the consumer before dispensing cash.

"Self-service check cashing kiosks with integrated Bitcoin ATM capability is another innovation in the company's history of defining convenience for customers," said, Bitcoin president.



According to CoinRadar.com, as of 2017 there are only a total of 571 bitcoin ATMs in the entire US. Due to the low number of bitcoin ATM locations nationwide there is a huge demand from customers seeking to buy or sell bitcoins for cash. People seeking to use a bitcoin ATM are willing to drive across entire cities just to use one, so combining a check cashing self-service kiosk with a bitcoin ATM and placing kiosks in strategic high traffic retail locations is win-win for the vendors and consumers.
