The Brown Derby on Tulane just got really modernized with a new digital currency ATM, which the co-founder of Texas based company Coinsource believes is the future of money. Bitcoin was the highest performing currency of 2015, and has done even better this year. They aren't printed like conventional dollars; they are produced by computers and held electronically.
New York-based bitcoin ATM provider Coinsource said Thursday it had expanded its offerings in San Diego, adding two new machines in Oceanside and National City. Coinsource provides a way for users to buy or sell bitcoins, a digital-only currency, for cash. Coinsource, which was founded last year, charges up to a 7 percent transaction fee, with lower prices for high volume transactions.
The future of money is wedged between a churning fountain drink machine and a few dozen cases of Coca-Cola at The Brown Derby Superstore on the corner of Tulane Avenue and Jefferson Davis Parkway. At least that is how Bobby Sharp sees it.
New Orleans now has its first-ever Bitcoin automated teller machine. Coinsource, a national Bitcoin network, installed the ATM inside the Brown Derby convenience store and gas station at Tulane Avenue and South Jefferson Davis Parkway
