Chicago Bitcoin kiosk to be up by spring, local entrepreneur hopes
from DNAinfo Chicago
South Loop resident Rich Gatz thinks Chicagoans are ready to start using the digital, unregulated currency known as Bitcoin — and hopes to soon open the first ATM-like kiosk in the Midwest that allows users to trade them for cash. "I want us to be the Midwestern center of crypto-currency — to create a community around bitcoins here," said Gatz. Gatz, a self-proclaimed geek who became fascinated with bitcoins in April, said he loves the concept and the community, which draws technology enthusiasts, investors looking to capitalize on a new and rapidly growing market, and libertarians who "feel that no government should have control over currency; we should control it ourselves," he said.
