Helsinki Unveils Europe's First Bitcoin ATM | Political Consulting . . . all things political |

While Canada has had Bitcoin ATMs for over a month, bringing the virtual currency closer to mainstream acceptance; reports that at one of the busiest spots in Helsinki, the Finns have opened the first permanent Bitcoin ATM installation in Europe. With the Chinese shunning the crypto-currency for now but the Swiss inching towards a broader acceptance, the appearance of ATMs (like this one at a well-known Finnish record store in the Helsinki railway station) will only serve to stoke the public interest.
