Government in America is not “shut down.” 800,00 Government workers aren’t working, which means we are operating with the level of government staff from roughly the year 2000. I was alive then, things seemed to work fine somehow. #shutdown fred.stlouisfed.org/series/USGOVT?…

Bitcoin ATMs are good for new users and it's easy to buy Bitcoin or other crypto with it.

The problems with most that I've seen are high fees and poor conversion rates. It is often much more expensive than exchanges. Next step is to fix these issues.
