What I know vending machine is already in Indonesia, but not yet officially opened because it is still waiting for approval from Bank Indonesia (BI). BI has considered Bitcoin not as a legal means of payment in Indonesia.
Hopefully there is good news from BI.

Such terminals have long been putting Bitcoin ATMs. You can buy a crypto currency for cash. Of course with a commission and not always at an adequate rate.

Nice implementation of  bitcoin vendo machine in South Africa, this is to awake the awareness of people there to know the significance of using bitcoin and patronizing bitcoin. A great news from Soith Africa which supports bitcoin. If the vendo machine will have a big impact in the country, then there is a big possibility that more people will use bitcoin.

In our country, there are ATM machines that you may withdraw some of your bitcoins thru atm cards. But is also very limited and few in a selected areas. I do hope, they'll also put some vendo machine here.

So bitcoin in africa is basically being accepeted and embrace by the people. Well good for them to think of bitcoin as a positive way. Actually bitcoin is good and there is no question about it since many are taking the advantage in gaining and earning profit in investing bitcoin. So the people there are having bitcoin as their priviledge in a form of bitcoin vending macine. Good for them.

What I observed is that the ATM Vending machines are very expensive. I belief that my country will slowly invest in more ATM Vending machines in the future. I am very proud that my country is taking Bitcoin seriously.

At this time, I dont expect otherwise concerning the numbers of bitcoin ATMs available because of the cost of buying, installing and maintaining one. Its still a very dicey investment to delve into because you don't put enormous money in a dicey business in the face of the law and current happenings are not making it looks like a gold waiting to be mine. With several countries taking a position which the negatives has been having an upper hand, social media that have the ability to influence decisions not also helping matter, even South Africa government is yet to take a definite position. The penetration would still be slow at this time until this germane issues are settled.

Great way to promote bitcoin. People are naturally curious. This vending machine will definitely attract new investors. I hope some investor would pour in some capital to have this machine mass produced and shipped all over the world.

Well, that's a good news Smiley. At least Africans are now aware of this kind of new technology and now tring to adapt. I wonder why they need to convert btc into an alt, btc is much useful right? Is ZAR their country-based crypto?

Here in our country (Philippines), I heard some rumors that there are already bitcoin atms on Makati which is one of our economic zones but I'm still not so sure about this one.

there has been a lot of adoption happening in Africa for over a year now and like any other place that has this kind of adoption there is always a lot of services starting up in their country. i am glad to see them moving forward with bitcoin this fast and smooth. it is like the developed countries are the only ones that are too slow in adoption of bitcoin for some reason!

That is really a interesting stuff to know about the Africa. Never thought that they will be the one who will also start initiative to know their merchants and people that bitcoin do exits and how it can be used. I am sure that lack of regulations is also helping a lot in this regards as in my country it is hard to put machine like that and if you apply for government orders to open up something crypto related then it always end up having rejection. So I think it is good thing in that way and by the time they will have some strong juris around then people might have understood the importance of bitcoin that way.  Wink

I have not been able to find a vending machine in my country, probably because of engine limitations. but there is a bitcoin exchanger machine produced in my country then sold overseas. because maybe in my country bitcoin can not be legalized

Just remember Africa is very big and I am only talking about South Africa which is a country on its own in Africa. South Africa is developing faster that the rest of the countries in Africa.

From your title I was expecting a vending machine that sells food and drinks that accepts bitcoin as payment. That would be way cooler in my opinion. Didn't know you were referring to a sort of bitcoin ATM machine.

Any adoption is great, I guess?

I live in a very foolish country where the lawmakers still believe counting currency notes with their hands is better than using online banking applications. So before the idea of Bitcoin will make any impact here, it might be after the next 20 years.
