Yet another Bitcoin ATM in Vancouver

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      So, I've lost count of the number of Bitcoin ATMs sitting around the Lower Mainland. Let's just say there's several.

      The latest one to be set up in Vancouver is at the Healthy Noodle House (2716 West 4th Avenue), which, if you didn't know, makes delicious noodle soups.

      It's a Skyhook ATM, an open-source model that costs US$999 to buy online. 

      Bitcoin Solutions, a company that offers margin trading services, owns the ATM, which charges a five percent commission.

      Users can convert Canadian cash into bitcoins, up to a maximum of $3,000 per transaction.

      At time of writing, one bitcoin was valued at US$235.98 on CoinDesk's Bitcoin Price Index, far below its peak of over US$1,100 in fall 2013.
