On a recent trip to Dublin city centre, I was walking up Abbey Street and noticed that GSM Solutions, which was formerly home to Dublin’s only Northside Bitcoin ATM is shut down, now replaced with a shop selling hemp goods. We had been in here several times to get bitcoin from their atm, as well as getting a Nintendo 3DS repaired and paying with bitcoin a while back.
The founders of the company were also heavily involved in the early days with the defunct Bitcoin Foundation of Ireland, as well as selling a POS system for selling bitcoin, and also the Bitex brokerage.
This closure means that there is now only one bitcoin atm located in Dublin, on the southside.
