TravelersBox converts Foreign Coins into Digital Currency

Three Israeli thirty-somethings – Tomer Zussman, Idan Deshe and Dror Blumenthal – founded TravelersBox at the end of 2012, a brilliant solution for converting those foreign coins that get left around the house after an overseas trip back into hard cash. They have developed an ATM-lookalike machine into which the foreign coins can be inserted and converted into digital currency. In this way, the small change left over from a trip can go into your PayPal account, be used as credits for an iTunes account, or used for purchases on eBay or international chains like GAP, Old Navy, and others. The machine has an interface in several languages, including Hebrew, and adapts the money conversion offer to the country. While Americans can convert the small change into credits for the Starbucks chain, Israelis can do the same thing for purchases at the Aroma chain.
