Bitcoin: The difference in Attitude is Education - Bitcoin Magazine | money money money | Scoop.it

The media tends to focus on doom-and-gloom stories, because sensationalist headlines attract larger audiences. However, when journalists go so far as to misrepresent facts and sway the public in one direction or another, these stories can be dangerous.

How and Why to Build an Unbanked Bitcoin ATM | Bitcoinism | money money money | Scoop.it

Unfortunately, despite complying with all the legal requirements we have been unable to secure banking facilities. Without these the Bitcoin ATM business cannot operate long term. The negativity from the banking sector to Bitcoin also threatens the ATM owner’s other businesses. For me it is prudent to shut the ATM down. If you have any interest in purchasing a second-hand bitcoin ATM with compliance documents. Please get in touch.
