Bitcoin Vending Machine – Exchange Euro Coins For Bitcoin (Wallets)

Bitcoin Vending Machine is a mechanical vending machine which exchanges 1€-coins for Bitcoin. This machine works with the service of easywallet.org which provides a Bitcoin wallet with web interface similar to online banking. One can only access the account through a secret link which you get in exchange of 1€-coin. Using this link a customer can send 1€ to another Bitcoin user.
