Robocoin plans to bring its bitcoin ATMs to the United States, the Las Vegas-based company announced Tuesday.

Robocoin will open the digital currency ATMs in Seattle and Austin later this month, Reuters reported.

The ATMs will allow users to buy and sell bitcoins by scanning their driver’s license or other government-issued identification into the machine — a requirement that may trouble users who rely on the anonymity of bitcoin.

Robocoin set up its first bitcoin ATM in Vancouver last fall and is slated to open one in Calgary, Alberta. The company hopes to soon expand to Asia and Europe, Reuters said.
