Hello All,

So it seems my earlier topic about ATMs didn't get any feedback and it certainly didn't spark a deep discussion about making Bitcoins more accessible. So I thought this would be a good exercise to gauge members feedback on where they think Bitcoin ATMs should be located.

So the challenge is simple:

We have 1000 ATMs and need 1000 locations to place them. We are asking members to provide a location where they think an ATM would be best placed in the world. Can be any country, city, town or neighbourhood. Hopefully this will be a constructive task and gauge some meaningful feedback.
Think about a location that would be most beneficial to users and also a location that would be able to raise awareness. The location would need to be easily accessible and have a wider usage/purpose.

What brand of ATM?

Do you have any way to prove that you (a newbie with 9 posts) have the means to put 1000 ATMs in 1000 locations?

I'd like to say Colleges but students dont have any money...
I'd suggest airports, but that has been said a few times :p
The next best one is Malls/shopping districts where people go to spend money, but ideally this should be done where somewhere close by accepts BTC so it would vary in every city.

So Im left with:

(Number?): Bars and Hotels.

Why:
People come to hotels are next step away from airports and they want to spend money (or are used to doing it in foreign places so are more likely to take a dip) - theyre also more likely to be hanging around or bored or waiting for something in a hotel (like an airport terminal).

Bars because people will get drunk and take a dip:)

Casinos in Las Vegas.

Strip Clubs.

You folks need to think a little harder before you rattle off locations.

Right now Bitcoin will be used by gamblers and lap dance experts.

Right now Bitcoin will not be used by Grandma Tilly and her Fat husband Hank (malls).

Location: SM Mall of Asia, Seaside Blvd, Pasay City, Philippines
Why:       One of the largest malls in Asia, in the "Travel City" which has the NAIA nat'l airport, and attracts a daily average foot traffic of about 200,000 people. With the Philippines being one of the most technologically-open minded countries in the region, booming tech and Bitcoin industry, this would only help to increase adoption more.

One of the prime use cases for bitcoin at the moment is tourism.
So...atm's in airports, but also in the tourist areas.
Tourists would not have to take large amounts of cash to some of these places to cover against lost/stolen/failed cards etc.

If the service charge isn't prohibitive I'd focus on setting up inside whatever business is right next
to a Western Union. Negotiate with the owner of said business to allow signage and a rep to be present
to introduce potential clients to BTC's benefits.

Perhaps even facilitating the interested new enthusiast in their first bitcoin transfer. It may take time to
make it happen on both ends (sender/recipient) but then that's what salesmanship is.

I'd be happy to find just such a place and provide this service for you, for a percentage. I'm a quick study and negotiable. Wink

Failing the above I could then move location to the local university. Or both...if you're having difficulty finding
secure locations. I live in a lively tourist destination on the west coast of Canada. Could you spare a third for
the cruise ship port as well?

Though that may be true, if you put Bitcoin ATMs in largely trafficked malls, you can reach the teenagers who want to be hip with the new currencies. Also, you'd probably get more news doing it in malls (where businesses will take the currency for products). Casinos aren't bad, (it's a great suggestion), but for more acceptance as an actual currency that will buy products and services, it should be put into a mall setting, IMHO.
