CoinMe launches Seattle’s first BitCoin ATM at Spitfire

Today a new Seattle start-up, Coinme, launches the first BitCoin ATM machine in Seattle right here in Belltown at Spitfire on 4th Ave. The start-up will manage and maintain the Bitcoin ATM machine, or Coinme kiosk as they are calling it. Just as a traditional cash ATM machine does, Coinme will take a small percentage of each transaction as a fee.

Coinme was created out of frustration from local technology executives who were dissatisfied with the lack of accountability and consumer protection being offered by early Bitcoin entrepreneurs. Coinme’s passion is to educate the general public about cryptocurrency, build the local cryptocurrency economy and provide the safest and most secure solution for buying and selling Bitcoin.

To kick off Seattle’s first Bitcoin ATM, Coinme is hosting a launch party tonight from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public, to sign-up please visit Coinme Launch Party event site and enter your information.
