Gucci, Prada, Louis… and now Bitcoin! Coin Cloud opens the "Bitcoin Bodega" with the Las Vegas Strip's first bitcoin ATM.

Located inside the Viva Vegas souvenir shop that surpasses 100,000 in daily foot traffic, the Bitcoin Bodega is on the bustling intersection of Las Vegas Blvd., just south of Harmon Blvd. across from ARIA Resort & Casino and shopping mecca Crystals at City Center.

The Bitcoin Bodega highlights a recent trend in bitcoin tourism, providing digital currency enthusiasts with a quick, easy and safe means to buy or sell bitcoin. No more carrying cash on planes or dealing with strict bank limitations and holidays. Tourists can now store money digitally and withdraw cash from the Bitcoin Bodega as soon as they arrive on the Las Vegas Strip.

The kiosk is centrally located within walking distance of most Las Vegas casinos. The location provides convenient drive-up parking and a security guard on site at all times. A partnership led by Chris McAlary, a bitcoin trader and former bitcoin miner, and his Pomona College roommate and Las Vegas native, Joshua Schlachter Esq., will operate the Robocoin Kiosk.

"In partnering with Robocoin, Coin Cloud has been able to deploy the first bitcoin ATM on the Las Vegas Strip," said Chris McAlary, owner of Coin Cloud. "I'm pleased to provide the vast Las Vegas marketplace with the highest quality of product and access to the joy of bitcoin."

Bitcoin Bodega is open 7 days a week; 8am to 12pm at the Viva Vegas souvenir shop located at 3735 Las Vegas Blvd S. Las Vegas, NV 89109-4308.
