A video shows the moment a bitcoin ATM spat cash all over a busy tube station in London when a customer withdrew more than the machine could deal with.
Footage shows commuters passing through London's Bond Street station as the ATM fires out £20 ($25) banknotes. The notes come out of the machine so quickly that they fall in different directions on the ground, creating a wide pool on the station floor.
The man withdrawing the money is seen with an open bag that looks to be filled with the bank notes under the machine, but many fall on either side of the bag. He then rearranges the fallen notes into a pile with his feet, looking sheepish and occasionally laughing as they continue to fly out of the machine.
The video, which was first shared on Reddit and republished by MailOnline, also shows a security guard standing in front of the piles of cash, preventing commuters from trying to take it.
Adam Gramowski, the CEO of Bitcoin Technologis, the Polish company that operates the machine, told The Sun that the machine had not malfunctioned and decided to randomly give out money.
Instead, the ATM was likely struggling to dispense such a large amount of money in such small notes, he said.
