First Bitcoin ATM launches on Las Vegas Strip

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Jul 30, 2014

Coin Cloud has opened the "Bitcoin Bodega," making it the first Bitcoin ATM on the Las Vegas Strip.

Located inside the Viva Vegas souvenir shop, the Bitcoin Bodega is on Las Vegas Boulevard, just south of Harmon, across from ARIA Resort & Casino and Crystals at City Center.

The Bitcoin Bodega highlights a recent trend in Bitcoin tourism, providing digital currency enthusiasts with a quick, easy and safe means to buy or sell Bitcoin. No more carrying cash on planes or dealing with strict bank limitations and holidays.

Tourists can now store money digitally and withdraw cash from the Bitcoin Bodega as soon as they arrive on the Las Vegas Strip.

"In partnering with Robocoin, Coin Cloud has been able to deploy the first bitcoin ATM on the Las Vegas Strip," said Chris McAlary, owner of Coin Cloud. "I'm pleased to provide the vast Las Vegas marketplace with the highest quality of product and access to the joy of bitcoin."

The Viva Vegas souvenir shop is located at 3735 Las Vegas Boulevard.
