Two men committed a Bitcoin ATM robbery – they took only $3000 from Bitcoin ATM and most importantly left the remaining $37000. This sounds a joke but it resembles an unfavorable instance of crypto/blockchain adoption.

Apparently, a couple of thieves were managed to rob only $3000 from Bitcoin ATM in Canada as police reportedly reached the spot within 15 minutes. This being said, Robbers managed to escape with only $3K in hand and left a large amount i.e $37000. Fortunately, there’s enough evidence, the store owner informed.

“Our security camera caught at least one of their cars drive away, which was a grey Nissan Sentra. The police were also able to catch their license plate too.”

As per the report, robbers smashed the front windows and entered the store. They smashed Bitcoin kiosk as well and stolen $3K in a matter of minutes. Following the incident, the store owner said that they won’t keep the bitcoin ATM in the store anymore. The machine was reportedly installed back in December 2018. Nothing else was touched except Bitcoin kiosk, said the store owner Troy Roland.

Although more and more Bitcoin ATMs across the world hints the adoption of decentralized money, at the same time, these types of unpleasant experiences in local shops or streets likely encourage bad-actors of the crypto market.
