who enjoy the odd bet have another option when they're
at the pub, aside the horses or the pokies.
they can put their hard-earned money it into the crypto-currency
Bitcoin while they're having a quiet schooner.
handful of crypto-currency ATMs are starting to appear
more frequently, but CBD couldn't help but notice
where payment company BitPOS decided to put its first
Bitcoin ATM : a watering hole in Sydney, the Metropolitan
machine will allow patrons, with the help of an app,
to buy the crypto-currency, which many believe is
well into bubble territory after ballooning to more
than US$4200 for a single Bitcoin.
far as we're aware, it's the first drinking hole to
offer the service.
of the founders, Jason Williams, says putting the
machine in the pub is an attempt to bring cryptocurrencies
out of the tech world, and into the mainstream (the
pub also accepts payments in Bitcoin).
the benefit of hindsight, putting some money into
Bitcoin a few years would certainly have been a better
move than playing the pokies.
