Crypto-currencies, a new type of digital currency that uses cryptography to transfer value, have been gaining popularity in recent years.
But while some online service providers are starting to accept the currency, others are still struggling to make money on their business.
One of those is Mr Appliance Repair, a website which sells digital ATM repair tools to repair faulty or stolen devices.
In a recent update, the website posted a video of its customer, named Mr Appliant, fixing a digital ATM in the United Kingdom.
“You’ve got a digital computer and you’ve got the money inside,” Mr Applient says, adding: “But it’s in the wrong place.”
Mr Appliant told Crypto Coins that he’d bought the device at a store in the UK.
“I got the computer, I got the device and I paid the cash,” he said.
“So the problem was it was not working, the money was not there, it was in the right place, and I just thought I’d fix it.”
He said the problem would only have been solved if he had the right tools.
“The whole thing was so stupid, and it was stupid because there was no manual.
No instructions, no directions,” Mr Applier said.
He added that if he’d had the correct tools, the machine would have worked, and if he hadn’t, it would have been repaired.
The problem was that there was an “unexpected amount of money” inside the ATM, Mr Applant said.
Instead, the device had a “big hole” in it, and “it wasn’t working”.
Mr Appliance said he was “very disappointed” with the repair, and that he was leaving the website.
“What I’ve been getting for years, they’re selling me things, I’ve just never bought anything,” he told Crypto.
He also admitted he was getting less money than he used to, and had spent most of his savings on repairs.
“My life is really difficult now, and [I’ve] been spending a lot of my money on repairs,” he explained.
“There’s so much to do and to get in the shop to fix things, and now I’m not getting the same money back.”
If I could get a little bit more money back, I’d be so much happier, and give it to my family.
