One Virginia bank says it has become the first commercial financial institution in the country to let users buy and sell Bitcoin at its automated teller machines. Charlottesville-based Blue Ridge Bank now provides access to Bitcoin at its 19 ATM locations, both at its branches and off-site ATMs.

Blue Ridge Bank's top executive said he believes the bank is the first in the country to offer the service, and it is doing so in response to what bank officials see as growing demand for Bitcoin.
