A Cryptocurrency vending machine has been found at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Just recently MIT Media Lab’s Ethan Zuckerman tweeted to his followers about the campus’ machine, which accepts bitcoin and is stocked with nothing but Soylent meal replacement drinks.

Bitcoin-Only Automated Vending Could Be the Future
MIT is not the first to display a vending machine that accepts cryptocurrency. In fact, it’s been done numerous times since early 2012.
Chris Smolen, founder of Utica-based Upstate Networks created a vending machine that allows customers to use bitcoin. Smolen said that, at the time, he believed Bitcoin could revolutionize these types of machines. “I [thought] it could be as big as email in terms of the advent of the Internet,” Smolen explained. “Once people realize the ease of these payments, they’ll never go back to Visa or MasterCard.”
