So what you've got here is USA regulation requirements, combined with "Bitcoin Security" (which I guess requires the hand scan).

Put the two together, and you've got an absurd invasion of privacy.  Both for legitimate reasons I suppose.  But wow ... this can be improved upon.

At least one of these doesn't come out of the bottom of the machine:

Yes it is absurd.  The USA wants its citizens to have zero financial privacy.  They would probably revoke physical cash if they could figure out how.
