Submission + - BitInstant rolls out cash deposits at Wal-Mart, 7-11, and more (

hawkeyeMI writes: "One of the most difficult things about using Bitcoin, the peer-to-peer currency, is getting sovereign currencies into the exchanges. A company called BitInstant has been trying to remedy that for some time, but today has launched the most accessible methods ever for getting USD (and other currencies) into popular exchanges. With their rollout today, one can now deposit cash from Wal-Mart, CVS, 7-11, MoneyGram, and many other locations in the USA, in addition to the major banks they previously supported. Note: although I am involved with Bitcoin I do NOT have any relationship with BitInstant."
