Bitcoinvention Asia 2014 Cancelled

The Bitcoinvention Asia 2014, the first and biggest Asian Bitcoin conference, which was scheduled to take place in February 12-13 next year, has been cancelled. The decision was made by the organizers after seeing that it is impossible to hold the event on the scheduled dates due to several reasons.

This decision is final after the organizers claimed that after looking into some important aspects of the convention, they found out some matters that need further study and development to assure the success the convention.

“We agree thats it’s not the right time to hold this event (February 12th 2014) since we feel the market is not yet ready for it, since the regulatory status of the Bitcoin is still unclear” Event Manager of the Bitcoinvention, affirmed.

Recently, Bitcoin had faced an erratic ride not only with the highest price surge but also with the Asian regulations surrounding this crypto currency. Though most Asian countries haven’t drafted certain governing actions for bitcoins, there are some which had already stated their stands like Thailand, and lately South Korea. Alongside with several countries having restrictive approaches to this digital currency, there are still few areas of the Asian market that are uncertain to accept bitcoins as a payment solution for financial and business transactions.

All attendees, speakers, as well as sponsors have already been notified prior to this announcement. The organizers of this event added that they were satisfied with the increasing demand of attendees, speakers and even sponsors to take part in this event.
The new date for the Asian Bitcoin convention will be announced soon after all the details will be polished. Bitcoin is definitely the digital currency of the future, and the Asian convention will still cover all the aspects surrounding this digital currency together with a better offer of certainty about bitcoins.

Lamassu Sells 100th Bitcoin ATM

Within the first four months of sales, the world’s leading Bitcoin ATM manufacturer has received over 120 orders for their sleek countertop machines. After reaching the 100-machine landmark, Lamassu, Inc. set up an online map of bitcoin ATM destinations that will continue to be updated as the machines go live. Over a dozen ATMs have already been delivered, and the rest of the orders will all be shipped by Spring 2014.

“We’ve had orders from all over the world. We will be shipping to 25 different countries, ranging from Canada to Kyrgyzstan, and we’ve translated our user interface into more than a dozen languages including Russian, Chinese and Friulian,“ says Lamassu CEO Zach Harvey. “To me it’s a testament to the global reach of Bitcoin.”

Online pre-orders for the Bitcoin Machine began in August on the startup’s website. The modern, minimalist design, small footprint and $5,000 price point have made it an attractive investment for Bitcoin entrepreneurs worldwide.

Shortly after Finland’s launched their Lamassu machine in a record store in Helsinki, Finnish blog Bitcoin Nontech reviewed the machine. The machine was deemed suitable for beginners and “ridiculously easy to use.”

Juraj Bednár created a YouTube demonstration of the machine’s simplicity at a Subway restaurant in Bratislava, Slovakia. The process of converting cash to bitcoin took about 15 seconds.

“It’s always exciting for a young startup to have sales ramp up,” Harvey adds. “But what’s really thrilling for us is to know that these will be out in the wild, providing millions of people with effortless access to Bitcoin every single day.”

Lamassu expects additional machines to launch throughout Europe and the Americas in the coming weeks, and the company is taking more orders on a daily basis. Notable locations in the United States include San Francisco, Atlanta and Seattle.
