BitCoin: Virtual Currency with Real Opportunities

The ATM Industry Association & EFTA have released its second commissioned research report into the digital currency BitCoin. The intensive report, written by Value Partners Management Consulting, authors of the industry’s bi-annual Global ATM Benchmarking studies, is called  “BitCoin: Virtual Currency with Real Opportunities”.

“As industry associations liaising with regulators, ATMIA and EFTA are keen to develop industry positions on the current and future significance of BitCoin,” Mike Lee, ATMIA’s CEO, said. “This excellent report presents a history and comprehensive international analysis of BitCoin, while at the same time showing how virtual currencies and ATM systems can interface for their mutual benefit.”

BitCoin, which allows people to send and receive payments within an entirely decentralized peer-to-peer network, has quickly become the most prominent form of “digital currency” in the world.
