The total number of bitcoin cash machines worldwide exceeded 3,000 in May, averaging six daily installations.

There are just shy of 2,000 bitcoin ATMs located across the United States, according to the latest statistics.

The stats show that bitcoin ATMs have been popping up globally at an alarming pace over the last 18 months.

At the beginning of 2017, there were just 1,000 machines located around the world. Less than 15 months later, this figure has tripled to 3,134 machines across 70 countries, comprising 437 operators and 31 producers.

In 2014, Coin ATM Radar released a forecast which anticipated that there would be approximately 2,900 bitcoin ATMs installed worldwide within seven years (by 2020). This figure was reached two and a half years early.

The bitcoin ATM industry has matured a lot over the last year. Growing prices during 2017 brought a lot of new users into the cryptocurrency sphere, which was a stimulus for growth of service providers to obtain their first bitcoins or other altcoins. Buying it for cash with the help of bitcoin ATMs is one of the easiest ways. The industry saw a rapid increase in installations from top operators, which allowed them to significantly increase their networks of machines further.
