Vancouver, B.C.: Anonymous ATMs, Y or N? Also: Fees?
OK, haven't seen a complete list of the ATMs of Vancouver and environs, with information on how intrusive the KYC is, or how high the fees are. Excuse the messy "formatting". I'll try to keep it up to date by editing the main post. Also, I'll reply in the first post just in case that is not possible. If anyone has newer information, please post it!

Last week I went to Money2020 conference. I have already uploaded some photos from the event, but I would also like to do some write-up of my overall impressions of the event. First of all, what was Money2020? It was a conference for all sort of things related to money - payment processors, prepaid cards, online payments, POS, payment hardware and software, as well as things like identity verification, compliance, investors, Bitcoin and Ripple. The conference consisted of a lot of keynote speakers and discussions, as well as about 2.5 days of exhibit hall running for various booth. There were over 4000 people registered for the event, among them some big players like PayPal, eBay, Amazon and so forth. If you want to know more, go to their website. As for panels, there were 2 Bitcoin-focused panels, "Bitcoin 101" and "Bitcoin & Beyond: Math-Based & Virtual Currencies". First was a general talk about Bitcoin and its future, not much new there asides Roger from Blockchain being as usual a strong proponent of Bitcoin, and Tony from BitPay asking the audience how many of them know of or have bitcoins - the answer was a big majority of the participants (I think the panel had well over 200 guests there, I'm bad at estimating really). So overall, Bitcoin was really hip during the conference. The second panel featured 2 people from the Bitcoin community, as well as a representant of Canadian Mint - the guys behind the MintChip challenge from 2012. Since I was very interested in MintChip, I was listening very closely to what the person had to say - one funny statement was "Canadian Mint is a for-profit organization, we make money literally and figuratively" :) (meaning that Canadian Mint not only prints the currency, but also mints precious metal collectible coins and sells them at a profit). However, a very important point that the speaker mentioned, that the Mint would be holding 1-to-1 the currency to back any dollar on MintChips. I knew that that was a big thing, so I did ask about it during the Q&A portion of the panel. I had 3 question for the person from Canadian Mint. 1 - "when will we see some new development for MintChip?", he answered that the Mint will be testing it internally for its employees next month, and in 2014 will launch it to the public with partners. 2 - "What is the algorithm behind MintChip, is it like Bitcoin, Ripple, or Open Transactions?", the response was that that information is above his pay grade. Generally the algorithm in MintChip was developed by some professor as far as I remember and it is a secret. No new information there then. 3 - "If the Mint will be holding the currency to back the MintChip deposit in a 1-to-1 ratio, does that mean the banks will not be able to do fractional reserve banking with MintChip?" - surprising to me, the answer was yes - the banks would need to deposit the currency to back any MintChip balance, meaning they can't lend out money against that balance. Personally, I think this will be a really big deal once the MintChip launches - if the system will be widely adopted it will bleed the money from the banking system and credit cards into the MintChip. Can't wait to see how this will play out! So, lets talk about the exhibit hall now. It was fairly large and there were a lot of booth for a number of different companies. When one would enter the hall from probably one of the most popular entrences, there would be the Kraken booth right there an then. On one of the far sides of the hall, right of Kraken, Blockchain and BitPay booth were one next to another. Back to back with BitPay, was Coinbase. Right still of that was a small elevated space with small stands - Ripple Labs had one in there. Around the centre of the hall, CoinX had one of the big booth, about the size of all other 4 Bitcoin booth put together. Briefly about each booth. I visited them all and talked with the people there for a longer or shorter period of time. Kraken was giving away chocolates (although they ended up having too many - a box or two were still left for Ripple conference), promoting their business and debiuting their Ven integration as far as I remember. They were also signing up members for their Digital Asset Transfer Authority - a self-regulating body for digital currencies I believe. Blockchain was giving away stickers, buttons, t-shirts and Bitcoin Magazines. They were signing up people for their platform and explaining a lot about Bitcoin. BitPay was presenting a Lamassu ATM. Also at their booth was Tuxavant with his BitcoinBriefcase (although he was technically with Blockchain). Every time I came by this guy was explaining Bitcoin to a new group of people with a lot of passion :). This was probably the most crowded Bitcoin-related spot right there. I did play around with the Lamassu a bit, but I think the WiFi there was not very friendly so the machine hanged a few times. Coinbase booth was rather minimalistic, they were generally promoting their platform and that was about it. Ripple stand was also about promoting the platform, as well as their new integration with ZipZap. Finally CoinX where I was manning the booth most of the time along with a big portion of the team. The booth was all about the platform debut - people could go on, see how the system was operating on a test network and learn more about future plans for the exchange. On Tuesday there were a number of interviews shot there with people both from the Bitcoin community and outside of it. What were my impressions from being at the exhibit hall? A lot of people know about Bitcoin, and a lot of big players are interested in it. We had someone from Coinstar talk with us saying that he would like to integrate Bitcoin (and that a ton of people ask about it), but since they are dealing with the Federal Reserve, there is a lot of FUD. Someone from Mastercard came over talking about their plans for their system that starts to resemble Bitcoin more and more (push rather than pull transactions, initiated by customer and so forth). There were also a lot of smaller people interested in Bitcoin - people doing some small prepaid cards, people doing remittance, and a variety of others. Generally, the financial people are looking into Bitcoin and probably we will be able to see more and more adoption soon. On Wednesday evening the Bitcoin enthusiasts organized a dinner together. Tuxavant was the brain of the operation - ordering a big Party Bus (they take Bitcoin :) ) for the 10-15 of us, and we went to Cafe Berlin. It was a family restaurant that not only accepts bitcoins, but also saves some of their money in that currency - true believers in our cause. There we met with local Bitcoin enthusiasts and ate some nice German food. Last day was the Ripple Developer Conference - all booths were already closed, there was only one other set of talks taking place at the same time, so it was officially a tail-end of the Money2020 conference. However, there were a number of people that came to Vegas just for this conference. I met a few people from Canada that did that. The conference itself was very interesting, at least in my opinion. I was interested in the Ripple technology for awhile, but haven't really looked into it for a few months. The presentations covered both the high view of how Ripple works, as well as went into some interesting technical details (at least interesting for a programmer ;) ). So that's about it for the conference. My reflections so far are that Bitcoin will be seeing a number of bigger players look into using Bitcoin in the near future. Also, some advice for people that wish to be representing their Bitcoin companies at conferences - it really helps if the Bitcoin booths are close together. A lot of the times during this conference when explaining Bitcoin to people and telling them what would be the best for their business we had to reference them to other companies present at the conference. If we were all closer to one another that would be a lot easier. We could capture the attention of a lot more people than being separate. I hope you enjoyed my overview of Money2020 :).

Bitcoins ATMs are Having a New Trend - skyhook for sale in Melbourne.
This was posted yesterday at http://www.newsbtc.com/2015/07/14/bitcoins-atms-are-having-a-new-trend/ "A lot of Bitcoin ATM machines are being installed all over the world. This year all along and in relation to the same period last year, the installation of Bitcoin ATM devices has doubled. A new report from Coinatmradar suggests that a new trend has attracted entrepreneurs to start installing Bitcoin ATM machines in prime location all around the world. This has been creating new opportunities while it has brought a lot of new people to the industry. Currently, there are 119 bitcoin ATM machines running in the U.S. making it over 300 Bitcoin ATM devices scattered around the globe. But with the rising trend, by next year, the number may well be in the thousands. Promoters claim earning potential for machines providing the new bitcoin service is actually quite high. The most well-known manufacturers of bitcoin ATM machines are BitAccess, BitXatm.com, Coin Outlet, General Bytes, Genesis Coin, Lamassu, Robocoin and Skyhook. With Bitcoin ATMs, people are able to easily deal with Bitcoin alongside traditional money as an easy way of buying and selling bitcoin while generating additional revenue for the owners. Transaction fees for buying and selling at bitcoin ATMs are about 6 percent. In addition, ATM operators can sell bitcoins at a higher price than they paid for them, which is the main attractive that is leading entrepreneurs to invest in such devices. While some online entrepreneurs, favor bitcoins because it is not regulated by governments or banks, other small business owners see the currency’s limits. Supporters claim using bitcoins is effective for selling virtual goods like software or premium content. This is because it may cut down on the cost incurred from selling in foreign markets. To make matters worse, bitcoins are also highly volatile as a currency. Still, ATM devices installed in prime locations have generated revenue of hundreds and hundreds of dollars. This has allowed fortunate ATM operators to pay off the cost of their machines in a blink of an eye. Currently, the expected ROI for ATM machines is said to be around three to nine months. If you are a bitcoin entrepreneur looking for low cash investments, Bitcoin ATM devices might be your best option!" I have a skyhook for sale. It has spent some weekends in a cafe when I work there. Unfortunately this is a quiet backstreet neighbourhood cafe with little traffic. It needs a better home and permanent installation (or not?). Near mint condition. Total cost with customs and delivery was round $1500. I will sell it on for $950 pick-up in Melbourne. Payment in bitcoin preferred of course!
05-12 07:06 - 'My journey to exchange BTC for Fiat via ATM' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/Rossman01 removed from /r/Bitcoin within 979-984min
''' Great, you’ve earned yourself some money - but you were paid in Bitcoin. You know how to use it, but what if you need cash?? This is a great question, and likely one to be asked millions more times with the gradual adoption and use of Bitcoin as a fiat. Many Bitcoiners would love to have a place where they can quickly go and hawk some BTC. Well I had the same need and have embarked on a journey to do exactly that, and along the way, help others avoid some of the obvious pitfalls that come along with the effort. The plan is to periodically visit some of these ATM’s here in my local area and report as to whether they are really still in operation and if they are meant to dispense cash, are they? Are they in a good neighborhood or is it better to visit during the daylight hours, etc.? The first location checked out is Marina Smoke Shop in Huntington Beach, CA (949-431-5122) - I called to verify it’s “2-way” status. The shopkeeper didn’t quite understand me and the store is only a few minutes drive from my house; So I took a trip to see the machine for myself. There are two things I could have learned before I arrived.. One, RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) - If I had only read into it further, I would have learned that at the bottom of the reviews on CoinATM Radar ([link]1 ) That there is a note lending to the type of coin and direction; then further down to simplify it, whether you can buy or sell or both from this specific ATM (This HB ATM is one-way -> Fiat to BTC). Two, even if you call the location, the shop keeper may have no idea what the ATM in their store does, since it’s likely the store owner isn’t the ATM owner. The lesson, do more research than you think is necessary before burning your gas. If you only need to buy BTC, this machine will work for you as of 05/01/2016. The machine type at this location is a “Genesis Coin” Alas, my first search wasn’t so successful, I did learn the above and continue happily on my way through trial and investigative error. Additional investigation gave way to new excitement as I learned that Jacks Liquor near LAX (in the city of Inglewood) is also described as a two-way machine; it even appears that way locating the machine through the above link. Great!! With this information in hand, I decide to check it out without the need to make a phone call and head out on my way - an approximate 45 minute drive. This machine is a bit off the Freeway and in a neighborhood I would call, a little “Sketchy”. It may be a “2-way” machine as advertised, but the one at this location turns out to have the exact same scenario as the other (set to “sell only”), so was a little disturbed when I realized it. Then, when asked why the machine wasn’t set for bi-directional, the little oriental man behind the counter who assumably didn’t speak a lick of English, raised his hands and shrugged. I left visibly perturbed and kicked myself for not making the simple phone call that could have helped me avoid this trip. So, for you my readers...This machine type is a “General Bytes” and only operates to “Sell” Although the link shows this ATM as “Two-way”, it is not. It would not be wise to jump off a plane thinking you can quickly trade your BTC for cash here because it’s close to LAX - This machine at Jack’s is set to only Sell BTC to customers - not trade it back. Best to continue on to the Westfield Mall (Described below). Had I continued up the Freeway another ten minutes or so (as suggested above), I would have made it to the Westfield-Culver City Mall where there is a Lamassu type 2-way machine (6000 Sepulveda Blvd CulverCity, CA - Located on the first floor near JC Penney) accessible during Mall hours. The notes for this machine indicate that it was recently updated in April of 2016 to 2 way status - That’s a good sign, considering it’s now only May 2016. I should have made a stop here before returning home from Jack’s, but then, I wouldn’t have started this article. Live and learn; instead, I’m heading there next in my continuing mission. This was an interesting experience. I found the machine no problem, and using it wasn’t a technical feat; very easy. Click sell, click how much, then the machine displays the address to send it to; Also, if you have your “pairing code” on your iPhone or android, then you can make your transaction by showing it to the little window at the lower left hand area of the machine. Be sure to include the amount of a fee, as the blockchain will set your transaction to the side and not process it for a long time. This happened to me, which sent me on an additional quest: Make contact with the owneoperator of the machine for assistance. Both the Manufacturer of the machine and Owner were prompt, knowledgeable, friendly, sensitive to my situation and helpful in resolving the issue. In fact, The Owner (Kais ([email protected])) happens to live in my area, and due to the distance between me and CulverCity, offered to help me personally for future transactions. He also advised that there will be a new 2-way ATM HeroCoin will be installing in Corona, CA soon - This is a main route into and out of Orange County, out towards San Bernardino and out towards Barstow. This was a great outcome that could have gone completely the other way. Be careful with how much you send to yourself and be sure to include a fee, you may just end up waiting thousands of minutes until the miner-nodes decide it’s worth it to pick up. Thanks Herocoin.co - Great customer service! ...and So, there I am.... next are some I haven’t yet visited, but plan to in my effort to flip out some Satoshis - and will update this string accordingly. Further up the freeway, there is a 2-way machine at Meltdown Comics in West Hollywood -> 7522 Sunset Blvd - Los Angeles CA 90046 11am-9pm daily (Store Hours). This is a “BitAccess” machine where you send yourself some BTC by going to the website and depositing there (“cash.bitaccess.co”). The machine will hold it for you and has it waiting when you arrive to any BitAccess machine; it’s called “Remote Initiation Process” - The benefit described for this is no validation time required once you get there. It’s ready and waiting for you. It seems like a pretty good location considering the general BTC audience; “er, Comic Book Store?? ...Works on multiple levels“. I’ve not yet visited this store. I also checked South on another machine (it turns out, there are two in the same complex area run by the same administrator) nearer to San Diego. I found an article claiming “California’s First 2-Way Bitcoin ATM” which was written in January 2016 and appeared in CryptoCoin News ([link]2 ... atm-opens/), considering the article is now several months old and the distance from me to Encinitas is long, I shot an email out to the machines admin contact (CoinOutlet.io). I was again impressed with how the admin responded right away, confirmed that the machine (located in, “Surf Brothers Teriyaki” 274 N. El Camino Real, Encinitas, CA) is currently working, and finally, asked to work with me to help avoid a wasted trip to an empty machine. I like that, prompt, professional, and helpful. The second machine is close by at Camino Village Plaza 256 N. El Camino Real, Encinitas, CA. Although there are a couple of closer machines to check out, these two are going to stay on my list to visit. These machines are CoinOutlet type machines - I’ve been able to locate instructions on use for any of these machines on YouTube.com. Thank you for reading my post, I enjoyed writing it for you; this is not the end but just the beginning. I plan to continue visiting and reviewing more. If this article helped you to save Time, Gas, Confusion, Avoid costly mistakes or any other additional Effort... or if it helped you make a decision, pointed you toward the next awesome idea, or inspired you to other Greatness; Please kindly consider donating to my bitcoin address: 1HL2WSg7Bqtfk119GnZb8Fsy5rRxmzPLYB Bitcoin donations of any amount will make me happy and keep me inspired to continue this journey. I also hope it will help educate and promote locations and the use of ATM’s to monetize BTC and get it to the Masses of people and into the mainstream Marketplace. If you are the owner or operator of a Bitcoin ATM located in Southern California and would like a visit and subsequent review of your atm location, Please contact me through this post or PM here at the website, Thank you very much.
