By now, most people have some idea what Bitcoin is as well as some general knowledge about cryptocurrency. But, back in 2014, it was a fairly new concept. That's when CPR's Andrea Dukakis learned about a machine--sort of a Bitcoin ATM--and did a story on it. She bought $5 worth and watched its highs and lows over the years.
