Most of the Bitcoin enthusiasts in Europe are well aware that London will be hosting the Bitcoin Expo 2015 conference next week, an event which the CryptoArticles team will be attending. However, most of you will probably not know that CryptoEvents, the company organizing this event, had to chance the venue’s location at a short notice.
Bitcoin Expo 2015’s New Venue
And it has to be said, the new location might actually be better than what was originally supposed to be the Bitcoin Expo 2015 venue. In an update posted by Boris from CryptoEvents earlier today, we learned the new venue is at the Central Foundation Boys’ School in Cowper Street, London.
While this is new venue’s location is quite a distance away from the original location, it will be as easy , or even easier to access by public transportation. The Central Foundation Boys’ School is located near the Old Street tube station, and depending on where you booked your hotel, it’s only a handful of minutes away by tube.

Robocoin Kiosk Nearby
Granted, this venue change is coming on short notice, but it brings another interesting aspect to Bitcoin Expo 2015. The Old Street tube station in London actually has its very own Bitcoin ATM, which is only a minute or two away from the venue itself. And the best part is that this Robocoin Kiosk is a two-way Bitcoin ATM, meaning we can both buy and sell BTC in exchange for fiat currency.
To find this Robocoin Kiosk, head down to the Old Street tube station and locate the Nimcomsoup shop, where you will find the machine next to a vending machine. It is interesting to note that while this is a Robocoin Kiosk device, the machine is actually running on Lamassu’s open source software to process Bitcoin transactions.
Customers can purchase up to 5,000GBP worth of Bitcoins per day, and sell up to 1,500 GBP of BTC per day. Do keep in mind the machine has a daily transaction limit (for both buying and selling combined) of 5,000 GBP. As far as the exchange rates go, it will be based on the Bitstamp exchange rate +5%. Opening hours for Nimcomsoup are between 7:30AM and 8:00PM from Monday to Friday.
