BitCoin operated Arcade Mixes Future And Past Together

If you think about this, it makes sense: it’s usually geeks who are into cryptocurrencies, and who is more likely than them to end up at an arcade, reliving the glory days?


Collecting quarters to spend in the arcade is about to become even more of a thing of the past! Not that there’s many arcades left outside of Japan anyways, but now, the machines are gonna have an alternative: using BitCoin. Liberty Games are the company behind this idea, and while it makes the whole process more complex than it needs to be, it’s at least pretty fun: by combining a Raspberry Pi and a PiFace add-on to create a payment interface, now it’s your Bitcoins what will give you those needed credits to rescue Pauline from Donkey Kong.
