Maybe on your adventures of learning more about bitcoin you’ve seen a small, white ATM here and there. It’s made by Lamassu, and they’ve announced that they’ve managed to sell their 100th bitcoin ATM.
“We’ve had orders from all over the world. We will be shipping to 25 different countries, ranging from Canada to Kyrgyzstan. We’ve translated our user interface into more than a dozen languages including Russian, Chinese and Friulian. To me it’s a testament to the global reach of bitcoin,” said Lamassu CEO Zach Harvey.
So far, the company has delivered a fraction of the units, with the rest being on the Spring 2014 delivery pipeline. At $5,000 per unit, they aren’t cheap, but that is a flat rate, and the purchaser does not need to pay any subsequent franchise fees, and so forth.
To celebrate the sale of the 100th Lamassu bitcoin ATM, the company has launched the aptly-named “Bitcoin Machine Map” — an interactive map with all Lamassu ATM locations (to be updated with every new sale). (via CoinDesk)
