First Bitcoin Capital Corp Completes Installation of Automated Check-Cashing and Bitcoin Enabled Kiosks into California High Traffic Markets; Completes Demonstration of Ownership of 2 Main Wallets

SACRAMENTO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 21, 2017 / First Bitcoin Capital Corp (OTC PINK: BITCF) and SAMCO Financial announced today that SAMCO has delivered 3 automated check-cashing kiosks to BITCF locations in Northern California. Kiosks were ordered by BITCF as a pilot test to integrate Bitcoin ATM functionality into self-service check cashing kiosks nationwide. During the pilot, BITCF is offering discounted check-cashing services and will promote the new services through online advertising, in-store signs, and special events, all aimed at consumers who use a check-cashing services.

SAMCO’s Web-enabled check cashing kiosks merge unique and exclusive check cashing capabilities with Internet-based applications. Both companies will now begin development of Bitcoin buy/sell capabilities to be integrated into a nationwide network of a growing number of kiosks which SAMCO already has in place. Services our Company plans to integrate will include BITCOIN ATM transactions, money orders and transfer,s as well as check cashing.

Store customers already have immediate touchscreen access to advanced services such as check cashing with Bitcoin transactions soon to be integrated.

BITCF is conducting pilot tests and studying customer acceptance of the check cashing kiosks with 3 units now installed at large Northern California grocery chain at the following locations:

6366 Mack Road
Sacramento, CA 95823
Hours: 6am-11pm
916.392.0693

4401 Broadway
Sacramento, CA 95817
Hours: 6am-11pm

430 Elkhorn Blvd.
Rio Linda, CA 95673
Hours: 6am-11pm

Map & Directions

The first two kiosks are already operating, with the third to become operational this week.

Earlier this year, BITCF announced becoming exclusive distributor of check cashing kiosks in California for the medical cannabis dispensaries, but decided to expand to include other high traffic retail locations.

Fees for the check cashing services will be competitive. Store customers using the service will be able to cash any valid type of check: government issued checks, payroll checks, and other types, including C-Stores and supermarkets, with service to every kind of customer. Many of those are unbanked and may need to cash checks before purchasing. Offering check cashing services on premises to this group of customers will be a very attractive way to increase revenues, as dispensary owners are looking for new ways to draw more customers because of check cashing convenience.

According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), a 2015 National Survey of Unbanked and Underbanked Households indicates that more than 7 percent of households in the United States were unbanked in 2015. This proportion represents approximately 9 million households. An additional 19.9 percent of U.S. households (24.5 million) were underbanked, meaning that the household had a checking or savings account but also obtained financial products and services outside of the banking system. By offering check cashing, our ATM Division expects that dispensaries will increase their customer base significantly once we expand to this market. Sacramento is the cultural and economic core of the Sacramento metropolitan area, which includes seven counties with a 2010 population of 2,414,783.

To cash a check, customers insert the ID card and check, then enter their pertinent information about the check via touchscreen access at the SAMCO kiosk. SAMCO validates the information, verifies customer identity in real time, performs an online check authorization, and issues an approval or decline back to the consumer.

Self-service check cashing kiosks with integrated Bitcoin ATM capability will be just one more innovation in the company’s history of defining convenience for customers.

According to CoinRadar.com, as of 2017, there are only a total of 571 bitcoin ATMs in the entire US. Due to the low number of bitcoin ATM locations nationwide, there is a huge demand from customers seeking to buy or sell bitcoins for cash. People seeking to use a bitcoin ATM are willing to drive across entire cities just to use one, so combining a check cashing self-service kiosk with a bitcoin ATM and placing kiosks in strategic high traffic retail locations is win-win for us and consumers.

Demonstrated Ownership of Company’s Two Main Wallets

BITCF clearly demonstrated that it owns its two main wallets and will soon demonstrate ownership of two additional wallets.

In order to perform this demonstration, in our last news release, we identified the addresses of these wallets and projected the test amounts to be transferred from wallet to wallet.

Quoting from our September 13, 2017 news release:

“The first transfer will be for 18.18 Tesla property #50 from our first Omni Wallet located here: http://omnichest.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1FwADyEvdvaLNxjN1v3q6tNJCgHEBuABrS

“These 18.18 will be transferred to our second Omni Wallet here: http://omnichest.info/lookupadd.aspx?address=1VuF26AgLyQ4tBoGzYTWRqtDG9zCB7QXe

“From this second Omni Wallet 19.19 FUEL property #189 will be sent to the first wallet.”
