We can't believe it has only been one week since we launched Asia's first public Bitcoin Vending Machine, so much has happened since! We made a lot of new friends here in Singapore and around the world. Newspapers and media wanted to talk with us. We had our new friend Wei En help us handle customers at our machine while we were working hard to improve our up-time (just today we made a new improvement that we hope will solve most of our issues!). We kept busy on Facebook and Twitter and on email.
On the day of launch, Mt. Gox, stopped all Bitcoin withdrawals and later filed for bankruptcy (by the way, this is main reason why we think you should be in charge of your own bitcoins, not us or anyone else). This week we had a tragic event in Singapore that media wrongly associated with our company. What a roller coaster! It is sure never boring in Bitcoin land....
Thank you so much for all your support during our first week - we love you!
We promise to continue to work hard to improve the experience further and move Bitcoin in Singapore (and surroundings!) forward and upward.
Below some snapshots from the first week of operations.
