Coinme Launch Party
Thursday, May 1, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
Please join us as Coinme launches and demonstrates the Northwest's first Bitcoin Kiosk at the Spitfire restaurant in downtown Seattle.
The Coinme kiosk, often referred to as a Bitcoin ATM, is among one of the first of it's kind in the world. It will allow Seattle residents to buy and sell Bitcoin in a fast and secure method, similarly to how transactions are conducted on a standard bank ATM.
Coinme was created out of frustration from local technology executives who were dissatisfied with the lack of accountability and consumer protection being offered by early Bitcoin entrepreneurs. Coinme's passion is to educate the general public about cryptocurrency, build the local cryptocurrency economy and provide the safest and most secure solution for buying and selling Bitcoin.
As a community we have an opportunity to build a globally-recognized cryptocurrency sector and bring consumer financial services into the 21st century. We hope you will join us for an exciting evening of Bitcoin enthusiasm as Coinme embarks on their journey starting May 1st.
