The Bitcoin Bodega highlights a recent trend in bitcoin tourism, providing digital currency enthusiasts with a quick, easy and safe means to buy or sell bitcoin. No more carrying cash on planes or dealing with strict bank limitations and holidays. Tourists can now store money digitally and withdraw cash from the Bitcoin Bodega as soon as they arrive on the Las Vegas Strip.

The kiosk is centrally located within walking distance of most Las Vegas casinos. The location provides convenient drive-up parking and a security guard on site at all times. A partnership led by Chris McAlary, a bitcoin trader and former bitcoin miner, and his Pomona College roommate and Las Vegas native, Joshua Schlachter Esq., will operate the Robocoin Kiosk.
