Bitcoin kiosks coming to Clay County Winn-Dixie stores

CLAY COUNTY – Coinstar and Coinme are launching more than 300 bitcoin-enabled Coinstar kiosks in Florida, including at six Winn-Dixie stores in Clay County. Customers will be able to buy bitcoin with cash at stores located in Green Cove Springs, Middleburg, Lake Asbury, Argyle and Orange Park.
The kiosks are a solution for the unbanked or non-tech-savvy: Coinstar machines offer easy, instant and safe access to digital currencies with cash for people without bank accounts or who lack technical savvy.
Some Florida politicians have embraced bitcoin, touting its benefits for Florida’s diverse population, giving economic diversity to folks without traditional assets or bank accounts.
Coinme is the first cash-to-crypto avenue in Florida: Bitcoin ATMs require a debit card and separate bitcoin wallet to store the funds. Coinme-enabled Coinstar Kiosks are all-inclusive and accept cash.
Coinme operates the largest cryptocurrency cash exchange in the U.S. Founded in 2014 with the simple belief that buying digital currencies should be easy and accessible to everyone, today Coinme powers nearly 6,000 physical locations to buy and sell bitcoin using cash through a partnership with Coinstar. The company offers an enterprise-grade API that helps “crypto-enable” legacy financial systems, and a vertically integrated suite of consumer products providing an easy, secure and efficient way to buy, store and manage cryptocurrencies.

Based in Bellevue, Wash., Coinstar owns and operates the largest fully automated, multi-national network of self-service coin-counting kiosks. With more than 22,000 kiosk locations, Coinstar provides convenient and reliable coin-counting services at mass merchants, grocery and drug stores, and financial institutions. Consumer solutions include coin-to-cash, coin-to-eGift card, and charity donation options. For kiosk locations and information, visit
