How to build a Project Skyhook Bitcoin ATM – Project ...
Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet
A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.
My name is Jon Hannis. I am the creator of the Skyhook Bitcoin ATM. (projectskyhook.com // github.com/projectskyhook) Hello Bitcoin. Having witnessed the hype, deception and closed practices of many bitcoin businesses that have come and gone over the past few years, I believe that it is in a responsible bitcoin company's best interest to be open wherever possible and never take pre-orders from their customers. I created Project Skyhook with this in mind. It's the reason why we quietly developed, opened our source, and were ready to ship before Project Skyhook took any orders. We've now shipped over 150 units worldwide in the span of less than 3 months. Go team! Scaling now out of the way, our goal is to have at least 1,000 of our units in the field by the end of 2014. Units are in stock for USD, CAD and EUR with more on the way. Don't have the BTC but want one anyway? All our source code is available at github.com/projectskyhook and you can build your own. One thing that sets us apart from many bitcoin businesses: our main incentive is to see bitcoin succeed. We've set our sights on solving the problem of bitcoin acquisition. Interested in being a part of the solution? Join us on our github (we accept pull requests) or over at /projectskyhook. I'll be around for the remainder of the day to take questions and respond to comments.
SkyHook bitcoin atm machine fatal error, we cannot login to configure
We finally received our skyhook bitcoin atm after 1 month and half. We started trying to configure the atm, when we connect to the admin page it doesn't connect, it's says unable to connect. After trying several times we were finally available to login the admin page but it were asking us a password, we never created a password and skyhook did not gave us any password so we are not available to configure our skyhook atm. It also says Fatal error many time. Please help us.
FYI: The one and only bitcoin atm in Austin (at HandleBar on 5th) is out of service.
Thought I'd post in case anyone was thinking about heading downtown to use the machine. Went down there earlier this week and was told the machine has been out of service for more than a month. Plus, some websites show 3 machines in Austin - there aren't. The 'one and only' now at HandleBar is the same one that used to be at Dominican Joe and there isn't one at the convention center. Okay, so the website I used (http://www.mylocalbitcoinatm.com/) listed 3 sites. Convention center, HandleBar, Dominican Joe. Dominican Joe and convenion center do not have one, the one at HandleBar is out of service (for about a month). Other posters have said there are other locations. This website has 4 locations total - http://coinatmradar.com/city/10/bitcoin-atm-austin/

Hey guys, a business venture I was in to put my skyhook in a local mall didn't work out (the mall wanted to charge a crazy amount for rent) and I have too much going on professionally to find a home for it right now. It's located in the Dallas area. If any of you guys are interested in a brand new skyhook Bitcoin ATM with security plate and the original box please message me. We can work out a fair price. Thanks
Hi We have had our Skyhook Bitcoin ATM running since last Summer happily selling Bitcoin to the Winnipeg pubic. We are open regular hours from Tues-Friday 11:30am till 6:00pm and Saturday from 12:30pm till 4:00pm. We heat our commercial building there with Bitcoin Miners and have Miners up for sale as well, so drop by 201 Bond Street to say hi and buy some Bitcoin! "YAY Transcona!" Oh ya and we have an expresso machine too :)
I know Skyhook's service as far as buying an ATM is bad, but is purchasing Bitcoins from an already established one OK?
I have two options. Go hours away to the nearest ATM or use a Skyhook in Osaka which is in Kansai, Japan where I live. What would you recommend? Local bitcoins seems difficult because I don't understand the bitcoin escrow service and how it works.
LibreATM: documentation and software for the Skyhook ATM (x-post r/bitcoin)
Got a "broken" skyhook ATM to play with. No power supply, corrupted SD card, a tablet with a recently installed stock cyanogenmod and the worst: missing documentation. I've fixed it, got responsive-ui and more using the lastest raspbian and cyanogenmod. 2 days ago I bought the domain libreATM.com and published all the docs and code on github. Made EUR and USD SD images too.
Automatic power ON (raspberry and tablet) when AC plug is connected.
Automatic tablet power off when AC plug is disconnected.
Clean raspberry shutdown, no more SD corruption/failed boot.
Power ON and clean shutdown with the ATM door closed.
WARNING: libreATM uses 2 "free" android apps that are not software libre (Kiosk and AutoPowerOff). WARNING: this code and documentation has not been thoroughly tested and has no official support from the Skyhook project or anyone else. heh :I
