There’s a new Automatic Teller Machine in north Alabama, and you’ll find it in a most unlikely place. The ATM will convert U.S. currency to bitcoins and vice versa. If you’re not familiar with bitcoins, it’s a kind of artificial Internet currency. So where will you find this embodiment of cyber finance?
The new ATM is located at the Huntsville Animal Care Clinic on South Memorial Parkway. The company who installed the machine chose the location because it’s a high traffic area with easy access. Just don’t expect your usual two to four dollar fee for usage; a transaction at the new ATM will run you five to fifteen dollars. There’s no word on when we can expect one in the Shoals.
