Alphavend has just launched its first 24 hour Bitcoin machine on Brighton's seafront, yards from the famous seaside town's iconic pier.

After successfully deploying machines in London and Scotland, Alphavend is optimistic about its foray on the UK's south coast.

"Brighton has a long reputation for innovation and embracing the new, and the social message behind Bitcoin, of a permissionless and stateless currency will surely resonate with its free thinking and egalitarian residents" Commented a spokesperson for Alphavend

Located in a convenience store (S.V. News) at 54-55 Kings Road, the machine will be available from 7am until 3am Sun-Thu, and 24 Hours at the weekend.

As well as offering customers the chance to buy Bitcoin, it will also shortly add the less well known, but up and coming digital currency, Litecoin, with other 'cryptos' set to follow in the near future.

The timing could not be better as Bitcoin demand had pushed it to al time record highs this week of £1,152 per BTC, almost three times its value at the same time last year
