For those who remember the Bitkoin presentation at wlug a couple of years ago...
It seems to be a currency that continues to develop. If you are in Vancouver you can now
use the worlds first Bitkoin ATM.
According to an article in today's The Guardian newspaper...
"With the Bitkoin ATM, users scan their hand to confirm identity, then funds move to
or from a virtual wallet on their smartphone."
"The system limits transfers to $1,000 a day, in an effort to curb money laundering
and other fraud."
"Bitkoin is not a recognised currency in Canada, so Ottawa's anti-money
laundering watchdog, the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre, does not
monitor its trade."
... I don't know if Bitkoins are recognised as a currency in NZ, but I do know that
the Waikato Uni's mail system that we are using currently blocks e-mails in which the
word "Bitkoin" is spelt correctly!
