Bit2Bit
Bit2Bit.co
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
Canberra ATM machine might be operating.
- Has an ABN.
- ATMs in Canberra and South Brisbane (< this machine has been seized by police).
- Website has bugs from August to November (map tile errors in some browsers: Firefox, Tor, etc.).
- Retweeting updated in November.
- Quick links: BT, Red, T, T2, Duck, FB.
BitRocket (ATM company)
BitRocket.co
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
Possibly operating.
- Less than 4 or 5 ATMs in Sydney and Melbourne? More rolling out but are "on ice" as of 18-09-2014.
- No ABN but is registered in England and Wales. Website says: "Each ATM machine is operated by the local host, whose ABN is available on location and on the host's site."
- A report has come in (17th Sept '14) from a redditor that the ATM price is $36/BTC more than the price on their website. Update: Turns out they were testing GST on the ATM (hence the difference in price).
- ATM's locations on website may not be up to date (Wynyard Station ATM was removed in September but website still says it is there?).
- Tweeted question in November.
- Quick links: BT, Red, T, T2, Duck, FB.
Spend Bitcoins
SpendBitcoins.com.au

- Owner is Jeremy W.
Is operating but you can't buy bitcoin anymore (website just lists places to spend bitcoins).
- Has an ABN.
- 01-07-2014 website said: "... we are no longer offering our bitcoin purchasing service".
Go Get Coins
GoGetCoins.com
- Founder/owner not listed on website.
- Risky for the below reasons. Probably not operating anyway.
- Has an ACN (search: 169400908) < No longer has an ACN as of Nov '14?
- New exchange advertised on BitcoinTalk.org on 03-08-2014.
- Warning: This is the only Australian exchange not using a https (SSL) connection.
- Website regularly says on the 'buy bitcoin' page: "Buy limit for today is between $0-$1" from Aug. to Nov. '14. Are they even in business?
CoinJelly
CoinJelly.com
- Founder/CEO was previously Ashley K but he sold the company in Dec 2014..
Probably not due to company changing ownership in Dec 2014 (all wallets were closed)
- Has an ABN. (< Is this ABN still applicable after the change of ownership?)
- I think you can buy bitcoin but I can't find a buy/ask price. They list on their website from July to Nov. '14 that they have a 1% fee but I think that is more for holding bitcoin in their wallet rather than buying bitcoin?
- Is CoinJelly misleading its users? Coin Fire says "Zurich Australian Insurance Limited (ABN 13 000 296 640) has not issued any policy of insurance to CoinJelly." yet CoinJelly says: "CoinJelly, through Zurich Financial Services Pty Ltd (Australia), guarantees user deposits up to 20 BTC" (comment removed from website in July '14).
