This ATM has a 'leaderboard' that ranks users with the most money their account. Yes, really.​

Story by Marina Pitofsky, USA TODAY • Yesterday 1:10 PM

Some people might call it impolite to talk about money in public, but an art collective is displaying work at Art Basel in Miami Beach that allows people to share their bank account balance.

The work, “ATM Leaderboard,” is an interactive sculpture, the art collective MSCHF told USA TODAY. The sculpture is a functioning ATM that can be used to check balances and make withdrawals, but the work captures a photo of each person who uses it and their bank account balance.

Users are then ranked on a leaderboard according to the amount of money in their bank account.

And no doubt there are those who get a boner by making the leader board.
 
Leaving very much dinero in the bank today would be a grievious error. Remember Ponce? You're not holding it if it's in the bank. It's theirs, and they will keep it if they need it, and they will need it soon IMHO.

Those artists described above are uneducated morons...
 
Is the artist collecting ATM fees for transactions too?
