An update to the BTC ATM I had put in my business...

Hey everyone. Back in mid December I had a Bitcoin ATM put in my shop and posted the great news to the sub. It was well received before I guess the ATM posts started being looked upon as played out. In the comments I mentioned that if you guys wanted, I would be more than happy to post some stats on how well the ATM was doing. I'll have you know I did some super diligent tracking the first month, but then afterwards it was looking as though I found a buyer for the shop and my priorities shifted.

The kind of back and forth you would find even on here when relating to the future of bitcoin as money. I was really impressed hearing it, because it gave me hope that the every day person has the capacity to embrace it. - ATM's are scam central. Someone commented in that last post over how popular these ATM's are with scammers. I was naive in thinking it would be a once in a while ordeal. NOPE. 90% of all the traffic the ATM gets is people getting scammed. Over the last few months it's gotten really easy to spot who's getting worked and who isn't. Here's the c...
