Open Bitcoin ATM converts coin with Arduino


Built in the interest of experimentation & education, the Open Bitcoin ATM project may not be secure enough for the general public but it manages to turn cash into cryptocurrency with surprisingly few components.

Round up a bill acceptor, Arduino + SD Shield, & thermal printer and you’re well on your way to building your own ATM of the (possible) future.

Relevant code for the open-source project can be found over at the GitHubs.
