Korea’s first Bitcoin ATM installed in Seoul’s COEX.

Korea’s first Bitcoin ATM went online at Coffee Sedona in the COEX complex in Seoul yesterday. The ATM machine exchanges Korean Won for Bitcoins and visa versa. The Bitcoin ATM does not require photo ID or biometric data to make transactions.

COEX is the largest underground shopping mall in Asia. It’s hosts to a maze of building that include: 3 hotels, a casino, an aquarium, department store, and giant shopping center. The COEX center underwent major renovations last year, part of which was re-opened on March 1. The remaining portion will be under construction until the year’s end.
