Exchanges are the easiest way to trade your Bitcoin and sell it for cash. Its very simple to use, you need to create an account one of the many exchanges available online.

Once you have set up the Exchange account, transfer the Bitcoin from your Wallet to the exchange. One of the most famous exchanges used by people around the globe is Coinbase. It might take up to 3-5 working days for the money to be transferred to your account. It generally cashes out in Euros, but if you need it in USD, you can opt for SWIFT Bank Transfer.

One needs to pay a small token for using the Exchange, and it may vary for different Exchanges. For example, one great exchange charges a flat $50 for Bank transfers and around $3.84 for Visa Cashouts.


Sell Bitcoin via ATM

The Bitcoin ATM’s are not an actual ATM in a real sense. Unlike normal ATM where you are connected to your Bank account to carry out the services, Bitcoin ATM starts looking for sellers online on the Internet. However, there are only a few ATM available which provide dual transaction methods, i.e. either you can sell your Bitcoins or buy bitcoins. The Bitcoin ATM Map help you locate the nearest Bitcoin ATM. You can also purchase bitcoin via Paypal.

Generally, it is just there to buy bitcoins and charges a very hefty exchange rate up to 7% in some instances. You pay in with money, and you get a receipt with QR code to link it to your Bitcoin Wallet.


Final Thoughts

Although, we are still far from the days where exchanging and selling of bitcoins will be as normal as making any transactions today. But, for the time being, we have to work with what we have got. Among different methods to sell your Bitcoin, I believe Peer To Peer transactions is still the best and safest. While a few of you might find the Exchange method quite suitable. Hopefully, in near future, we will have our banking systems based on Block Chain Technology and trading Bitcoins or any other cryptocurrency will be easy.
