Bitcoin Well was founded in 2013 in Canada. We started doing Over-The-Counter trades in coffee shops. We launched Alberta’s first Bitcoin ATM in February 2014 and quickly moved to launch Saskatchewan’s first Bitcoin ATM in May of the same year.
Bitcoin Well offers convenient and secure online and in-person solutions to help you buy and sell your Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. We want to help you discover the benefits of using cryptocurrencies by making it easier for you to buy, sell, and use them the same way you’re used to using cash.
“My goal is to bring Bitcoin further into the mainstream and educate everyday people about the benefits of decentralized currency” shares Adam O’Brien, Founder & President of Bitcoin Well. “This is exactly the platform I wish I had access to when I first started to explore and learn about Bitcoin in 2013.”
Bitcoin Well was founded in 2013 and is an industry leader and trusted voice in Bitcoin transactions and education. In 2021, we anticipate becoming the first publicly traded and oldest standing Bitcoin ATM company in Canada.

Our Founder, Adam O’Brien
Adam began his own journey of curiosity with Bitcoin when the currency started to take the spotlight in mainstream media. When he realized how difficult it was to acquire and navigate, he quickly realized a gap in the market and set out on a journey to make Bitcoin more approachable and easy to access.
In early 2014, he deployed the first Bitcoin ATM in Alberta, and soon after, the first in Saskatchewan. Since then, he continues to teach people and make Bitcoin easier to buy and sell. Follow Adam on LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and Medium.
