SPOTTED: Bitcoin ATM being set up on Bonham Road near HKU’s East Gate

Do you keep finding yourself going about your business and suddenly coming to the realization that “DRAT! I forgot to buy Bitcoins today!”? Well, your troubles are over, for there’s another Bitcoin ATM in town. 

A Coconuts reader spotted this Bitcoin ATM being installed around 90 Bonham Road, right by the Circle K and the PhD pizza delivery joint outside the East Gate of Hong Kong University. It’s unclear which company is responsible for Hong Kong’s latest Bitcoin ATM.

Hong Kong’s first Bitcoin ATM made headlines in January for being the world’s second-ever Bitcoin ATM. There are now several different types of Bitcoin ATMs in Hong Kong operated by various companies.
