With SXSW 2014 starting this week, Robocoin is gearing up to make four bitcoin ATMs in Austin, Texas accessible for the events.
According to the Las Vegas-based company, three of the ATMs are already in place, and the fourth is dubbed the “Robocoin Rover”, a Robocoin ATM that is capable of moving from place to place (see picture above).
Here are the stationary locations:
- HandleBar: 121 East 5th Street
- Dominican Joe’s Coffee Shop: 515 South Congress Avenue
- Central Texas Gun Works: 321 West Ben White Boulevard #203
The ATMs at HandleBar and Dominican Joe’s are operated by Bitcoin Agents, and at least one of them will be temporarily moved to the SXSW trade show.
The Robocoin Rover will be, well, roving about. The company says they’ll be updating their official Twitter account will locations as the rover moves.
Robocoin ATMs allow consumers to purchase bitcoin with fiat currency and vice-versa. The devices have become extremely popular, with the first machine (installed in a downtown Vancouver coffee shop) doing $1 million in transactions the matter of a month.
