A new bitcoin machine has been spotted in the United States, and it’s likely to be one of the first in the world.
According to a Twitter user who identified himself as @thehonestbitcoin, a machine was spotted in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood on Thursday.
“Just found out it’s coming to the United states and will be up and running in a couple weeks,” the user wrote.
“A lot of people are wondering about this and it appears to be a machine that was used in a test in China.
The test was in China but they are also testing it in the US.”
The tweet went on to say the machine is being manufactured by a company called BitGo, which is based in Shenzhen, China.
“BitGo’s goal is to make bitcoin mining as cheap and reliable as possible,” the company told CoinDesk in a statement.
“It will be the first bitcoin mining machine in the USA and will use the same technology as the one used in China, the company said.”
The machine is expected to be available for sale this spring.
“It’s not clear if the machine will be a fully functional one or just a proof-of-concept.
A recent survey by the US bitcoin exchange Coinbase showed that only 3% of Americans use bitcoin for daily use.
The machine appears to have a few things going for it.
First, the machine has a lot of room to grow.
The seller claims it’s up to 30m coins, meaning that it will be able to grow to a full-size machine.
Second, the seller says the machine comes with a wallet that can store up to $10m of bitcoin, and a QR code for easy wallet scanning.
Third, the sale price is about $1,000.
It’s unclear how much of the proceeds will be used to buy the machine itself.
According an article on CoinDesk, the machines sold for $300 apiece at CoinMarketCap.com on December 13, with the average price at $1.25, a steep discount from its original asking price of $1 million.
At the time, the exchange’s site showed the machine was being advertised as a “futuristic bitcoin machine”.
However, the site has since removed the advertisement, and no listing for the machine exists.
A Reddit user named Bitcoinist said that the machine sold for about $300 on December 14, with an average selling price of about $750.
Bitcoinist said the sale rate for a bitcoin machine was similar to the average for any bitcoin transaction.”
In my opinion, there are very few machines available for purchase that are actually capable of doing anything with the currency,” Bitcoinist wrote.
According, the bitcoin community has been slow to react to the news.
Several people, including bitcoin core developer Gavin Andresen, have called on the bitcoin network to switch from a “hard fork” to a “soft fork” that would allow the price of bitcoin to rise and lower.
Meanwhile, a new altcoin, Dogecoin, has also been gaining popularity in the past week, with a market capitalisation of around $600m.
