Calgary Installs First Bitcoin ATM

Calgary in Canada has just had their very first Bitcoin ATM installed in the city, making it possible for citizens of the large Canadian city to exchange Canadian Dollar into Bitcoins within seconds 24/7. The machine has not yet been revealed to the public, but will be so on July 11th at the Waves Coffee House on 17th Avenue SW.

Calgary is a modern and tech-savvy city, so it seemed only logical that they would be the next Canadian city to install a Bitcoin ATM. Dave Bradley from Bitcoin Brains is one half of the business duo responsible for installing the ATM and he believes that a Bitcoin ATM is the easiest way to get Bitcoins.

“It’s the easiest way to get Bitcoins. You can get them in a few minutes and you get them 24 hours a day.” He said.

The machine has been provided by Bitcoin Teller Machine and will be available for use from Friday at the Waves Coffee house, 24 hours a day. Users needs to have a Bitcoin wallet to use the machine or register one from there. The machine is a one-way machine, meaning that you can only exchange CAD$ to Bitcoin and not vice-versa.
