The Official Bitcoin ATM Launch Event!

The delay is over! The Bitcoiniacs are holding a press event for the launch of their ATM, and Vancouver Bitcoin Meet Up is invited! Come help explain Bitcoin to all of the curious presspeople, and mingle with other enthusiasts and Bitcoin big-shots. From their announcement:

"The world's first Bitcoin ATM has arrived, right here in Vancouver! Now thanks to Bitcoiniacs, you can both buy and sell bitcoins at your convenience! No need to make an appointment, or meet strangers at strange locations--this ATM is available at the same place everyday! Come check it out.

Made by Robocoin, this ATM will be placed inside of Waves Coffee House at Smithe and Howe downtown Vancouver, a prominent Bitcoin venue. If you have questions about how to use it, bitcoin enthusiasts and staff members are often nearby. The Bitcoiniacs strive to make the process of buying and selling bitcoins easier for everyone, to help spread Bitcoin far and wide!

The future of Bitcoin is here!"

    Sorry about the short notice; it's been a busy time, for me, and Robocoin scheduling is prone to delay. I usually take the Skytrain to Waves--I don't have a car, myself.

    So, how do we register the accounts to use this thing? Do we do it on the spot, or is there some way to do it online?

      I believe the machine creates an identity for you upon first use. So probably on the spot, although I haven't done it, yet.
