Taiwan Regulators Block Robocoin Bitcoin ATMs

(CoinDesk) Taiwan’s Financial Supervisory Commission has stated it will prevent the installation of Robocoin Bitcoin ATMs there, responding almost immediately to the company’s plans to introduce machines in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Zeng Mingzong, FSC chairman, made the statement in an interview with the Central News Agency.

Robocoin had only just announced plans to expand into East Asian markets, designing new user interfaces for Chinese-language speakers. Taiwan was also seen as a bright hope for Bitcoin in Asia after mainland China began issuing its own strong statements on Bitcoin use in December.
