Chinese Bitcoin Exchanges OKCoin and BTC China Planning Bitcoin ATMs
A Chinese news-blog posted the first report on the topic on Monday, making note that the exchange would be showing off their own ATM creation at the Global Bitcoin Summit 2014 conference taking place in Beijing from May 10th-May 15th.
More specifically, the ATM (which is said to be more like a vending machine in that it only dispenses bitcoin) will be at the OKCoin booth, for those in the area looking to sneak a peak.
Also of interest, while we’re on the topic of OKCoin, is the news that the exchange would be suspending account recharges via their merchant bank account (not surprisingly with all the rumors that have been floating around).
BTC China’s bitcoin ATM
Let’s not forget BTC China, the country’s well-known bitcoin exchange that once climbed to the top of the charts (late last year). They too are planning a bitcoin ATM, and are holding a press conference on Tuesday at the IC Coffee Cafe in Shanghai.
The exchange is encouraging small business to attend, so it will be interesting to see what they have in store.
Obviously, we’ll have more information on that as it becomes available. [source: CCN]
