Recently lots of K-Bank ATM machines were removed in several locations in Sukhumvit - and probably lots of other locations. Lot of other ATMs are still there. What is going on?

Maybe because the pin & chip cards now coming in use & abandoning the magnetic stripe only ones..? needing other ATM  readers

It's not that.

All the ATMs in Thailand have been able to read the chip & pin cards as well as the mag stripe for nearly a year now.

I'm going on correspondence with the Bank Of Thailand regarding the vulnerability of their system regarding chip & pin cards.

It was them who told me all the ATMs had been completely upgraded.

From what I see of this bank, it has some of the worst exchange rates available - especially in malls !

In Europe decades already we use pin & chip even to pay in supermarkets and shops with terminal and pin code .Even for credit cards long time already ...even before the USA , only that contactless pay system now I dont not trust and don't accept it .

That´s a recipe for disaster!

Not bad but they forgot Bitcoin.

Yeah, that´s right. Think if you can pull out some Bitcoins from your pocket, and just slide them into the machine.
