Mining expert Salter looks at the problem from the other side. “I think our industry is actually driving the expansion of renewables. Not just in Scandinavia, but especially in developing countries.”

That generally depends on the amount of foot traffic your location has on a daily basis. The rule of thumb goes like this. 3% – 5% of the foot traffic that actually sees the ATM machine will use the ATM.
So let’s figure that you have a total of 300 people a day coming through your doors, and let’s say that you are charging a $2.25 surcharge per valid withdrawal. If you take the middle road that 4% of the people that see the ATM machine will use it.
It could also mean that thousands of retail stores could sell crypto just like candy bars. It’s already happening. LibertyX has deals with retailers CVS, Rite Aid, and 7-Eleven to enable bitcoin purchases at selected stores.
A customer uses a LibertyX smartphone app to punch in the amount he or she wants to buy, up to $500 per day. A barcode appears on the phone’s screen. A clerk scans the barcode and the customer hands over the cash.
It’s instantly added to the customer’s bitcoin account, less a $4.95 transaction fee.
