With bitcoin price rise the speed of bitcoin ATM installations also accelerated as there is a spike in number of bitcoin ATMs appeared in the last two weeks. Bitcoin ATM operators probably had to pre-order machines quite a while ago, so it is more a thorough calculation based on expected transaction volumes and potential growth. But as bitcoin machines are installed in many places and by independent operators – this fact shows that running a bitcoin ATM is a profitable business.
Our Bitcoin ATM speed gauge shows the speed of installations is 2.86 bitcoin ATMs per day, which translates into 20 new bitcoin machines installed over last 7 days. So let us check who is standing behind these new installations.
Largest bitcoin ATM operator in Switzerland installed a new machine in Stein am Rhein at GOLDHUUS. It has standard conditions as other machines from this operator – charging 5% from Bitstamp with CHF 2000 daily limit. Bitcoin machine allows both buy and sell bitcoins as it is a BitXatm model.
Next operator is coming from Hong Kong.
This is a second Lamassu bitcoin ATM installed by HK Bitcoin ATM. Now machine is located at Shing Lee Shopping Arcade and buy bitcoin operations are supported.
Canadian company BitBork installed a new BitAccess bitcoin ATM in Brampton at Loan 4 Payday. This is a two-way bitcoin ATM, so one can both buy and sell bitcoins here. Operator reported the fees to be at 3-6%, however, according to user feedback received the machine might charge a higher commission of about 11%.
GetSumbits operator installed a new General Bytes BATM3 bitcoin ATM in St. Louis at Galleria 6 Cinemas. It supports both buy and sell bitcoins with 7% buy fee and 3% sell fee. There is a $5000 / day limit, and several tiers of verifications avaialble starting from fully anonymous transaction for small amount of bitcoins, switching to phone verifications for increased limit of $500 / day and ID scan for the maximum limit of $5000 per day.

A Michigan state based company, which was already operating 5 bitcoin ATMs in Detroit area launched another bitcoin machine in Highland Park. It is a one-way Satoshi1 bitcoin machine, which allows only purchasing bitcoins. The fee charged by the operator is quire low announced at 3.5% from Coinbase feed with a huge $9999 limit per day per customer.
Another bitcoin ATM is installed by an operator from Austria.
The company was running two bitcoin ATMs in Austria: one in Vienna and another one in Graz. They installed installed a new bitcoin machine in Vienna at Tian Bistro am Spittelberg restaurant. This is a lamassu unit which allows only to buy bitcoins. As a unregistered customer one can purchase 50 EUR without any registration, while registered customers don’t have any limit on purchasing amount. Bitcoin machine charges 4%.
A New York based operator who already run more than 20 machines in the area installed several more Satoshi1 bitcoin ATMs in New York area. One machine installed in Elizabeth at Gail’s Wine & Spirits, another machine was installed in laundromat at 250 Broad Street, one more in Far Rockaway and one more in Rochdale Laundromat at 168-19 Baisley Blvd.
Company runs now 23 bitcoin ATMs in total all located in New York city area.
Digital Mint is a newly established company which installed two bitcoin ATMs in Phoenix recently. One of them is a Satohi1 bitcoin machine at from Genesis Coin bitcoin ATM producer at Check Changers on 32nd St another one is similar machine and also installed at Check Changers but on 43rd Ave. Both machines have 11% fee for purchase of bitcoins.
Athena bitcoin ATM is a young brand with already several bitcoin ATMs installed, however, owners of the brand has a broad experience of operating bitcoin ATMs in the past. The company installed a new bitcoin machine in Dallas area at Zoom Food Mart. They charge 9% fee for buying bitcoin.
Now switching to Europe, namely United Kingdom. A company called Landmark Bitcoin installed a new General Bytes BATM2 machine, which allows to buy bitcoins. Bitcoin ATM is located at Gidi Sharwama in London. Fees are unknown, however the limit is at 1000 pounds per day for unregistered customers.
A bitcoin ATM operator with a nice name BitLove has installed a new bitcoin ATM at Boost Mobile in Los Angeles. This is a two-way bitcoin ATM by General Bytes which allows buying and selling bitcoins. Currently the fees are set at 10% for buy and 0% for sell bitcoins.
Finnish company Coiner, which is specializing in running Localbitcoin ATMs installed a new unit in Helsinki making a total of 5 machines in operation. In order to use machine user has to be registered at localbitcoins. The fees are 3.5% for buy and 5.5-7% for sell. Total purchase or sale bitcoins amount is 1500 EUR per day.
CoinSource operator who was running 5 bitcoin ATMs accross the states installed two new bitcoin ATMs this past week. One machine was installed in New York at Grace News and another one in Dallas at gas station. Machines charge 7% and 8% fee respectively with a $3000 daily limit at both locations.
BitStop run before one lamassu machine in Miami. This week company installed its second Lamassu bitcoin machine at World Foreign Exchange in Miami. The pricing is based on the company’s feed +9% above. Maximum limit is $600 with ID verification in place.
Latest bitcoin ATM added to our map is Satoshi1 bitcoin machine from a new operator Rockit Coin. Machine is located in Chicago at Gold Crown Liquors. Fees are not available for this location, but maximum limit is $2500.
Bitcoin ATM business becomes a more competitive journey as new players enter the market. INteresting is the diversity of bitcoin machines and its geo spread. However during last time there is a dominance of Satoshi1 bitcoin machines installed from Genesis Coin and majority of bitcoin ATMs land in the U.S., which has 199 bitcoin machines installed as of now.

CoinFlip Bitcoin ATMs add Ether and Litecoin capabilities
By Douglas Busvine and Stephen Nellis
FRANKFURT/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Security researchers on Wednesday disclosed a set of security flaws that they said could let hackers steal sensitive information from nearly every modern computing device containing chips from Intel Corp (INTC.O), Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD.O) and ARM Holdings.
One of the bugs is specific to Intel but another affects laptops, desktop computers, smartphones, tablets and internet servers alike. Intel and ARM insisted that the issue was not a design flaw, but it will require users to download a patch and update their operating system to fix.
“Phones, PCs, everything are going to have some impact, but it’ll vary from product to product,” Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in an interview with CNBC Wednesday afternoon.
Researchers with Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google Project Zero, in conjunction with academic and industry researchers from several countries, discovered two flaws.
The first, called Meltdown, affects Intel chips and lets hackers bypass the hardware barrier between applications run by users and the computer's memory, potentially letting hackers read a computer's memory and steal passwords. The second, called Spectre, affects chips from Intel, AMD and ARM and lets hackers potentially trick otherwise error-free applications into giving up secret information.
The researchers said Apple Inc (AAPL.O) and Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) had patches ready for users for desktop computers affected by Meltdown. Microsoft declined to comment and Apple did not immediately return requests for comment.
Daniel Gruss, one of the researchers at Graz University of Technology who discovered Meltdown, called it "probably one of the worst CPU bugs ever found" in an interview with Reuters.
Gruss said Meltdown was the more serious problem in the short term but could be decisively stopped with software patches. Spectre, the broader bug that applies to nearly all computing devices, is harder for hackers to take advantage of but less easily patched and will be a bigger problem in the long term, he said.
Speaking on CNBC, Intel's Krzanich said Google researchers told Intel of the flaws "a while ago" and that Intel had been testing fixes that device makers who use its chips will push out next week. Before the problems became public, Google on its blog said Intel and others planned to disclose the issues on Jan. 9.
The flaws were first reported by tech publication The Register. It also reported that the updates to fix the problems could causes Intel chips to operate 5 percent to 30 percent more slowly. (http://bit.ly/2CsRxkj)
Intel denied that the patches would bog down computers based on Intel chips.
"Intel has begun providing software and firmware updates to mitigate these exploits," Intel said in a statement. "Contrary to some reports, any performance impacts are workload-dependent, and, for the average computer user, should not be significant and will be mitigated over time."
ARM spokesman Phil Hughes said that patches had already been shared with the companies' partners, which include many smartphone manufacturers.
"This method only works if a certain type of malicious code is already running on a device and could at worst result in small pieces of data being accessed from privileged memory," Hughes said in an email.
AMD chips are also affected by at least one variant of a set of security flaws but that it can be patched with a software update. The company said it believes there "is near zero risk to AMD products at this time."
Google said in a blog post that Android phones running the latest security updates are protected, as are its own Nexus and Pixel phones with the latest security updates. Gmail users do not need to take any additional action to protect themselves, but users of its Chromebooks, Chrome web browser and many of its Google Cloud services will need to install updates.
The defect affects the so-called kernel memory on Intel x86 processor chips manufactured over the past decade, The Register reported citing unnamed programmers, allowing users of normal applications to discern the layout or content of protected areas on the chips.
That could make it possible for hackers to exploit other security bugs or, worse, expose secure information such as passwords, thus compromising individual computers or even entire server networks.
Dan Guido, chief executive of cyber security consulting firm Trail of Bits, said that businesses should quickly move to update vulnerable systems, saying he expects hackers to quickly develop code they can use to launch attacks that exploit the vulnerabilities. “Exploits for these bugs will be added to hacker’s standard toolkits,” said Guido.
Shares in Intel were down by 3.4 percent following the report but nudged back up 1.2 percent to $44.70 in after-hours trading while shares in AMD were up 1 percent to $11.77, shedding many of the gains they had made earlier in the day when reports suggested its chips were not affected.
It was not immediately clear whether Intel would face any significant financial liability arising from the reported flaw.
"The current Intel problem, if true, would likely not require CPU replacement in our opinion. However the situation is fluid," Hans Mosesmann of Rosenblatt Securities in New York said in a note, adding it could hurt the company's reputation.

How to use a bitcoin ATM - Business Insider
One of the most basic premises of computer security is isolation: If you run somebody else's sketchy code as an untrusted process on your machine, you should restrict it to its own tightly sealed playpen. Otherwise, it might peer into other processes, or snoop around the computer as a whole. So when a security flaw in computers' most deep-seated hardware puts a crack in those walls, as one newly discovered vulnerability in millions of processors has done, it breaks some of the most fundamental protections computers promise—and sends practically the entire industry scrambling.
Earlier this week, security researchers took note of a series of changes Linux and Windows developers began rolling out in beta updates to address a critical security flaw: A bug in Intel chips allows low-privilege processes to access memory in the computer's kernel, the machine's most privileged inner sanctum. Theoretical attacks that exploit that bug, based on quirks in features Intel has implemented for faster processing, could allow malicious software to spy deeply into other processes and data on the target computer or smartphone. And on multi-user machines, like the servers run by Google Cloud Services or Amazon Web Services, they could even allow hackers to break out of one user's process, and instead snoop on other processes running on the same shared server.
On Wednesday evening, a large team of researchers at Google's Project Zero, universities including the Graz University of Technology, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Adelaide in Australia, and security companies including Cyberus and Rambus together released the full details of two attacks based on that flaw, which they call Meltdown and Spectre.
"These hardware bugs allow programs to steal data which [is] currently processed on the computer," reads a description of the attacks on a website the researchers created. "While programs are typically not permitted to read data from other programs, a malicious program can exploit Meltdown and Spectre to get hold of secrets stored in the memory of other running programs."
Although both attacks are based on the same general principle, Meltdown allows malicious programs to gain access to higher-privileged parts of a computer's memory, while Spectre steals data from the memory of other applications running on a machine. And while the researchers say that Meltdown is limited to Intel chips, they say that they've verified Spectre attacks on AMD and ARM processors, as well.
Ben Gras, a security researcher with Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam who specializes in chip-level hardware security, says that the attacks represent a deep and serious security breach. "With these glitches, if there's any way an attacker can execute code on a machine, it can’t be contained anymore," he says. (Gras was clear that he hadn't participated in any research that unearthed or reproduced the vulnerability, but he has watched the revelations of Intel's vulnerability unfold in the security community.) "For any process that’s untrusted and isolated, that safety is gone now," Gras adds. "Every process can spy on every other process and access secrets in the operating system kernel."
Meltdown and Spectre
Prior to the official revelation of Meltdown and Spectre on Wednesday, Erik Bosman, a colleague of Gras in Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam's VUSEC security group, successfully reproduced one of the Intel attacks, which take advantage of a feature in chips known as "speculative execution." When modern Intel processors execute code and come to a point in an algorithm where instructions branch in two different directions, depending on input data—whether there's enough money in an account to process a transaction, for instance—they save time by "speculatively" venturing down those forks. In other words, they take a guess, and execute instructions to get a head start. If the processor learns that it ventured down the wrong path, it jumps back to the fork in the road, and throws out the speculative work.
