Since we first announced our multi-currency cryptocoin ATM machine yesterday, we have received an overwhelming level of support in response. We never expected it to spiral quite so far out of control, and we are extremely excited by what this means for the community as a whole. We've updated this page now to give you some more information on the units, and what they are capable of.

The Moolah ATM was the first product that we envisioned, and was the reason for us founding Moolah. At the heart of a machine is a Raspberry Pi which is in turn connected to a resistive touchscreen (we are currently toying with 7" and 10.1" models). The machines will be encased in a secure enclosure (yet to be designed) and feature optional modules to make your unit a little bit more special.

Initially, we were building 30 prototypes to start, with a shipping deadline of March 28th. We are sticking to this shipping deadline, but are following on from the level of demand we have received, will be upping the prototype count to 50. We cannot currently commit to greater than this as it would leave us in a position where we had bitten off more than we could chew. The machines themselves support Bitcoin, Dogecoin and Litecoin in terms of currency that they can dish out to people, and they support payment via most internatonal currencies (bank notes). Down the line, we're aiming to add card payments via another module.

Prototypes cost $550 to buy, and final units will cost around $200 more once we're out of the prototype phase. There is an additional flat-rate shipping fee of $50, which we have forgot to charge up until now, and won't ask anybody who has purchased one to cover. If you want to buy a prototype unit, you can pay for it in BTC, DOGE or LTC. We don't accept FIAT! At the rate we are going, we expect to stop accepting new orders as of this upcoming Monday. Screenshots of the initial UI can be seen further down, this was the original prototype software and will be changed considerably.
  • Ability to set a flat rate fee per transaction, or add a markup to exchange rates.
  • Includes a camera that can scan QR codes, or photograph identification for security checks.
  • Stringent security, you can require that a user logs in to an account (e.g. their Moolah account) to verify their identity. We handle the KYC and AML checks in this scenario.
  • Orders are fulfilled either by sending to an address (manual entry or scan from QR code), topping up a Moolah account (via a login or our NFC debit cards) or printing to an offline wallet (if you have the optional module).
  • 7" or 10.1" touchscreen, we're deciding on the final form factor.
  • Devices are relatively portable and a small form factor, they will be between 8" and 11" (cube) overall.
  • They will feature a secure enclosure that can be locked down.
  • International bill acceptor to support multiple currencies and validate them.
  • Devices can run in standalone mode (linked to your own fulfilment via bitcoind, etc) or in linked mode (linked through to your Moolah account to fulfil).
  • If a user is trying to purchase more currency than you have available, autotopup is available for some merchants where we cover the shortfall.

  • Wireless support.
  • NFC module to topup our upcoming Moolah Card (cryptocurrency debit card that links to a Moolah account for tap and pay).
  • Printer module to print offline wallets.
  • Card payments... eventually.
