Satoshi Point’s three machines will currently charge a flat 5% fee over the live bitcoin price on Bitstamp. The company has future plans to integrate with cointrader to allow for faster withdrawals.

Investors will soon have the opportunity to invest in Satoshipoint Ltd with either bitcoin or sterling in return for real shares in the company.
These are second generation Robocoin machines that include a passport scanner (a UK first) as well as biometric palm reader and driving licence reader. These security features will not be implemented from day one but are in place to future proof the machines and make sure they comply with any future regulatory requirements.
