The chart quickly becomes a long tail, with the rest of the 27 countries on our map containing just a handful of machines and quickly thinning down to just one or two. Where exactly are all these bitcoin ATMs located, then?

This unusual terminology refers, of course, to Bitcoin and to other cryptocurrencies. The document goes over the basics of cryptocurrency, including issues of authenticity and double spending, but the most intriguing element of the document is the discussion on whether cryptocurrencies are "money.
