Hi, We Created A Crypto Coin ATM

Oh, and did we mention we made it open source?

Cool story bro, but what does it do?

Thanks for asking! Here are a few key features

Multiple Crypto Currencies

Our ATM currently supports not only Bitcoin, but also Litecoin and Dogecoin. It also allows for users who don't have a coin wallet to print a Bitcoin wallet right from the ATM.

Open Source

Our entire codebase is open source and on GitHub. We didn't hide any code or hold anything back. If we used it in our ATM you have complete access to it.

Easy Coding

All the code for the ATM is written in HTML, JavaScript, CSS & Node. So if you are familiar with these you can quickly modify the ATM to fit your needs or just give it your own look and feel. There is a little Python used to generate the QR codes for the wallets.

Easy-To-Source Parts

All but 2 of our parts for this ATM were bought on Amazon. Heck, some of them you probably have laying around the house or shop. We break down the entire parts list below.

We built our ATM using easy-to-source parts

What's that you say? You're a busy person and don't have time to search for all the parts?

No problem, here's a shopping list!

For our screen we wanted something with a bit of size and it had to be touch screen, but at the same time, we didn't want to break the bank.

Questions?

Do you have any questions? We’ve got answers

What crypto coins does the ATM support?

Right now you can purchase Bitcoins, Litecoins and Dogecoins

What if a user doesn't have a coin wallet?

No problem. Currently our ATM supports printing of Bitcoin wallets. It prints both the public and private key for the user.

Can I use your code to build my own ATM to make money?

Of course. Currently we don't have code in place to charge any ATM fees, but these are in the plan for the future. You can always fork us on GitHub and add this functionailty yourself.

I have a suggestion/comment. How can I contact you?

You can email us at info@techknow.io. You can also contact John (@johnjhass) & Tony (@virelli) on Twitter.

Want To Build Your Own?

Great! Get started by download/forking us on GitHub.
