    A little backstory for those not familiar. In March I submitted a proposal to the treasury to install Dash brand ATMs, it includes reduces rates for Dash users, Dash logos on the exterior and usage reports to determine the volume of Dash users. The proposal was approved and we've been working quite a few months cultivating a relationship with one of the biggest companies in Europe.

    While the original proposal was to place an ATM in downtown Lyon, we discussed other locations as a fallback during the process. Lyon didn't work out for now, but our relationship with the company that can make that happen did. We now have a contract with Unibail Rodamco, Europes largest owner of shopping centers.

    "Unibail-Rodamco is Europe's leading listed commercial property company
    specialised in shopping centres in European capital cities, in offices in Paris and in Convention & Exhibition centres in Paris.The Group's portfolio was valued at €42.5 billion on June 30, 2017"

    Our first machine will be placed in Amstelveen at the Stadshart shopping center. It will be at the main entrance from the parking garage with over 800,000 people walking directly by it per year. We are currently in negotiations with Almere and Den Haag to place machines as well, along with someone I can't disclose for a location in downtown Amsterdam. Lyon and Paris will be assessed by the French teams in January 2018.

    I will use this thread to announce new locations and to post usage updates. Cheers!

    Both Amstelveen and Almere are confirmed, awaiting final contracts. The Almere machine will be in the city center shopping center at the -1, in front of the Deen grocery store. There are about a half-dozen other retailers there and it gets about 1.3 million footfalls per year.

    We have finalized the contract for Amstelveen and Almere. The launch date is scheduled for November 1st at both locations. We will be posting updates when the machines arrive and once they go live! If anyone can convince General Bytes to enable 2 way Dash transactions and get our exchange, Bitstamp to buy and sell Dash, that would help everyone out a lot. As of now, Dash must be bought and sent to a hot wallet to be sold.

    I have had the request for selling DASH in since the beginning of the year with General Bytes and trust me they hate me because I bug them all the time. We need more customers asking for two way support. It looks like yesterdays release will now allow for 2 way support frame work for DASH. I did just finish testing this and it is not working for DASH. looks like its just for the coinbase API that now lets LTC sell, but DASH is using dashd even though the sell button is there now you get an error if you try to sell DASH. Bummer

    I have been thinking about installing Lamassu software on the General Bytes ATM since its open source. General Bytes seems a little slow to act. Lamassu emailed me and said they added 2 way Dash support with easy install. I just wish they'd either improve the look or lower the price.
