Bitcoin Daily: Circle K To Add Bitcoin ATMs To Stores; Data Shows 51 Pct Of UK Consumers Would Take Crypto-Backed Loan

There will soon be new ATMs available in New York City at Circle K locations, a report from The New York Post says.

“Our goal is to provide as much access as we possibly can for consumers by putting more ATM machines in all 50 U.S states, including throughout New York,” Brandon Mintz, CEO of Atlanta-based Bitcoin Depot, told The Post.

Users will be able to put traditional cash into a bitcoin ATM and quickly buy the cryptocurrency. They can use cell phones as a digital wallet to house the funds purchased from the automated tellers.

Meanwhile, fifty-one percent of British adults, according to Coinbase research, are interested in taking out a loan using their digital asset holdings, a report from CryptoPotato.com says.

Thirty-nine percent said they’d be willing to use crypto to send or receive money through international transactions.

Coinbase did a survey among thousands of British residents and has found that many of them were much more interested now in using digital assets.

Over half of the respondents, or 51 percent, described the option of taking crypto-backed loans as “very interesting,” and Marcus Hughes, the managing director of Coinbase Europe, said “the attitudes of British consumers towards cryptocurrency have transformed significantly in the last few years, with many now considering adopting cryptocurrency as an alternative method to execute traditional banking functions including transactions and loans.”

Finally, decentralized exchanges saw $56.47 billion in volume during the month of July 2021, which saw another decline overall.

The monthly figure was posted as another decline from previous months, with June posting $80.85 billion. The DEX ecosystem was at its highest in May, when it had $162.02 billion in volume.

TheBlockCrypto reports that 65 percent of that monthly figure was derived from Uniswap v2 and v3 — $10.6 billion and $26.57 billion, respectively.

The report says SushiSwap and Curve both posted $6.07 billion and $5.13 billion respectively in monthly volumes.
