Google’s European Privacy Rights Debate Forum Calls For Public To Weigh In

Luck be a protected cryptocurrency-based transaction via a highly secure, distributed network tonight! Robocoin, a bitcoin ATM company, has announced that it’s placed the first bitcoin ATM on the Las Vegas strip where the high-rollers and low- can go to turn their winnings into crypto cash.

The ATM, south of Harmon Blvd on Las Vegas Blvd, is “inside a souvenir shop that surpasses 100,000+ in daily foot traffic,” hardly a spot that the Rat Pack might frequent. However, Robocoin is claiming that that the area is secure and popular with tourists. The ATM is owned by Chris McAlary, creator of CoinCloudNV. The ATM is near the end of the strip, across from the new City Center Casino.

The D, a Detroit-themed Casino in Old Town Las Vegas, was the first to have a bitcoin ATM on premises. However, this looks to be the first Bitcoin ATM on the Strip, an interesting development for the widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies among the blackjack and sports book set.
