Hello all,

I'm pleased to announce the latest Madhatter site!

Bitcoin 2 Credit Card

This site will enable anyone to sell me their Bitcoins for a virtual credit card.

Best of all: it is 100% automated. Cheesy

Please use this thread to post suggestions, comments, and other 'beefs' with the service.

Enjoy!
The Madhatter

Very nice.  This definitely fills a needed niche.

Now people may keep their money stored as bitcoins, yet still access the "legacy currencies" through VISA.  Smiley

It will be better still once we can reload existing prepaid cards.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Hello all,

I just increased the inventory and lowered the price. I'm running this service almost at cost to get it going. I'll likely raise the prices once I get some trade velocity happening. Get your cards while the pickin' is good! Tongue

Kudos to you for this. Two quick questions:
- Where are these issued, or more specifically, what charges will there be for using them outside the US$ realm, other than the exchange rate itself?
- What do we do to use the full credit, if for example I have $13 left and I want to buy a $14 piece of gum?

we measure long periods of time in bitcoin blocks, and short ones in vodka tonics

Hello,

Those are good questions. I'll likely add them to my FAQ.

I am the issuer. The banks I use are in Canada. Not to knock the USA or anything, but I think that having your funds outside of the USA is a good thing. Look to e-gold, Liberty Dollar, and GoldAge as examples.

The banks typically charge a 2% spread on foreign exchange. Visa takes some, the bank takes some. This is typical of all credit cards.

That's expensive gum. Tongue You'd have to buy something for $13 or less or make smaller purchase until the balance is depleted.

The best deal is on the $100 VISA, currently. I am keeping the price artificially low on that one on purpose to pick up some Bitcoins for B4C. This is a limited time offer -- so act fast. (end of sales pitch).

Cheers!

* The Madhatter quickly edits the FAQ

Changed:

Quote
Who is the issuer? / Where are the banks located that handle these cards?

Bitcoin2CC is the issuer. The banks are located in Canada.

What currency are the cards denominated in?

Due to banking regulations the cards must be denominated in Canadian Dollars. View the Canadian to US Dollar exchange rate here.

How do I check the balance of my card? / How do I activate the card? / How do I set the name/address on the card for online/telephone use?

Due to the fact that we use more than one bank these details are revealed after your purchase has been made.

When do the cards expire?

The $25 and $50 cards expire one year from the activation date. The $100 cards expire two years from the activation date.

Or someone with a desire to buy mass coin at a discount to the market rate (which is what Madhatter is doing) could offer Madhatter some coin to help him set up a similar website for the US.  It requires some US$ backing though.

What if we cloned this site for Australia and the USA?

We don't need to compete. Personally, I see this as a public service. The more of these systems we have in place, the better.

Sounds good to me.  

I don't currently see an easy way to get $ out to pay for the inventory I need in my offline service business. Unless someone is able to start selling me Virgin and/or Used Motor Oil for BTC. So, I'd rather not compete with you or anyone to provide financial services. I'm more of a work-with-my hands kind of guy. I make and fix things. I do web design but I got bored with it a long time ago.

I'm trying to think of hard goods to sell. I just know that it would be easy to go out and buy prepaid Visa cards, set up a Joomla/VirtueMart site, and mail off the cards to who ever buys them.

I have a site we could use. Well its a bare joomla install I havent figured out what to do with. See http://bitcoin.me Mike Gogulski has already created a virtuemart plugin for bitcoin http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1841.0 so we could use it and help him test it out on a live site. Im not a web designer.  Cheesy


The other thing I can get fairly easily are itunes cards. I imagine you can get them from supermarkets anywhere in the world. I can also do coles gift cards which are the largest supermarket chain in Australia...

Okay, great.

The current system is a very very small set of PHP scripts with a MySQL backend. You guys will either have to setup some hosting (I'm currently using a VPS at link2voip, and a privacyshark domain.. lol.. all paid for with BTC) and a domain name or you'll have to trust me to host it for you. Either way the desired effect is virtually the same. (Probably best if you hosted it.. distributed, distributed, distributed... lol)

We should cross-promote the sites too. "For USD Cards click here" or something like that. Perhaps just a pulldown menu with currencies and a "take me there" button.

The site is tied in with mybitcoin and I have the mybitcoin account setup to just bounce the coins to my main wallet here. So each of you will need a mybitcoin account with a similar setup. I can set this up for you and let you login and change the password to lock me out of it.

I spent an entire day coding this system so I'd like to be compensated for my time in building the initial system -- payable in Bitcoins of course. My compensation was supposed to eventually be made from the commissions on the cards. A dream that won't be realized if the market is about to fragment. I also understand that fragmenting this is a very good thing for the community.

After compensation/setup it's basically a free for all. You can redistribute the software to your heart's content. Also I will provide all of the support required to install and setup the software and get each of you up and running independently. You are likely to run into different snags getting setup and I promise to iron them all out. Smiley

Do we have an accord?

Yeah, I donated 100 to MikeG when he finished the Joomla mod. He has a Drupal mod, too. I keep up with him on FB. He mentioned on FB that he sold some Zimbabwe cash and that's what made me come back to the forums here. I've done a few Joomla sites. I used it for our clothing store in California. It was a great platform until my partner spent all of the operating cash on personal expenses.

I'll keep an eye on what you guys decide to do and help out however I can.

I've been reading about possible parallel Bitcoin networks. I thought you knew something about it that I didn't.

Either way, like I said, I'm not quite ready to get into this market so your US business is safe for now. I don't have $$ laying around that I can tie up in BTC since I have another business to run and I just got hit with a massive tax bill from California. I'll keep an eye on how things work out for you two, though.

They really screw you to the wall dont they? I was thinking a simple webshop where people could exchange any gift cards for bitcoins wouldn't rely on having stock at all untill people placed an order. I dont think there are enough bitcoin users to automate things at this moment.
http://www.card9.com/giftcard-api.asp
  This site lets you create your own gift cards. This would allow any merchant who sells products for bitcoins to create their own gift cards that people can redeem on their site.

Thats why they call them gift cards and not credit cards. Tongue

A friend of mine is a large commercial banking customer. I was able to persuade him to use his leverage and his bank accounts. It's all about who you know. Smiley

Sure, I could have used gift cards but the prices for them are way too high. It's really the difference between paying retail and paying wholesale.

Anyway... I digress... lol

That's why the question came up to me.

Quote
What currency are the cards denominated in?

Due to banking regulations the cards must be denominated in Canadian Dollars. View the Canadian to US Dollar exchange rate here.

Does that mean, I pay 50 USD and get 50,525 CAD or do I pay 50 CAD and get 50 CAD ?

EDIT: forget it ;P

The cards are priced internally as CAD$ then converted to BTC.

So, to answer your question you are technically paying CAD to get CAD. Smiley

Hey guys,

Just an update. After talking to the banks in great detail (Yes, they're open. We already had our Thanksgiving up here. We can't wait for turkey. Tongue) I came to the following conclusions:

If I sell reloadable cards or sell US$ cards I have to collect everyone's identification, keep it on file, and submit it to Visa. There are also a pile of other KYC regulations I'd have to comply with once I even touch US$. If I touch US$ I have to comply with US laws by proxy. The USA has a lot more laws regarding this sort of stuff than Canada does.

Now for some good news:

1. I just refilled the card inventory again. I was running low -- again. Tongue

2. I am now able to load cards up to $500 instead of $100. I am in the process of getting $250 and $500 cards. The higher priced cards make the fees a lot easier to swallow. I might discontinue the $25 card in the near future for this reason. Thoughts?

3. I am under a pile of paperwork right now to get setup as a high volume reseller. Once this happens my costs will go way down and I'll pass the savings onto the customer. I'll likely just match the retail price.

Cheers!

Yeah, it's hilarious!  BTW, Canada never bothered to get rid of their first emperor.

This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I wouldn't abandon the small value cards if I were you. Make them proportionally more expensive if that's the case, but leave the option for those who are not very comfortable with putting a lot of money in a prepaid credit card, like people who fear being stolen, or who still don't trust your business well enough...

Dear Madhatter,
Your service is the best!
I received virtual Visa $100, but I don't want to register on the site. I just tryed to transfer all balance to my Liqpay account but I forget that because of the security measures Liqpay demand that cardholder's cell phone is from the same country as the card is.So I can only use it for online purchases. But if you can help me to transfer all or part of balance of my virtual Visa using yours or someone else mobile from Canada I would be happy! If you decide to help me in this matter PM me and I will securely email you my CC info and my cell phone I use for Liqpay .

Well, thank you. Smiley That comment made my day! Smiley

You should be able to register the card to your country by using an address in your area. Or, you can optionally use a VoIP phone number in Canada. Some of them can do SMS now. (I don't know if you need SMS to make it Liqpay work; I've never used it before.)

No. The virtual card numbers work right "out of the box". Bitcoin2CC activates them upon purchase automatically.

Registration is only useful when you are making purchases online from stores that do address verification.

I finally managed to pay for my Vim and Debian T-shirts on freewear.org.

I had to create a paypal account though  Sad

But I very much prefer giving Paypal a virtual card, rather than my "hard" card number.

Seriously what you've done is great, Madhatter.  You might have a serious business model and financial activity, there.

In conjonction with your bitcoin4cash service, this just kicks ass !

Do you have any idea if this could be done in Europe, too ?


If you need a financial partner to make similar services in euros and in Europe, let me know.  If you need investors to help you get some funds, let me know as well.


Also, could you explain this ?  (it's from your FAQ)

    <<
    How do I check the balance of my card? / How do I activate the
    card? / How do I set the name/address on the card for online/telephone
    use?

    Due to the fact that we use more than one bank these details are revealed
    after your purchase has been made.
    >>

For instance I've just bought for about CAD$70 of T-shirts.  Now I should have about CAD$30 left on my balance.

I'd like to make sure of this in order to sell the remaining amount against bitcoins.

Edit.

OMG this is so cool !   I've managed to credit my shareholding account of EUR20 (a little less than CAD$30) directly using this.

This is great.  I guess now my balance is about EUR2.2.  What would happen if I try to transfer 10 ?  I guess the paiement would just be refused, right ?


Edit again.  Ok I get it !  I can check the balance here :  www.mybalance.ca

OMG this is really a great stuff !  Damned it Canada is quite a liberal country !!

Nice to know the cards work on PayPal. I swore them as my mortal enemy years ago, so I didn't test it.

In conjonction with your bitcoin4cash service, this just kicks ass !

I do trades in both directions now; each and every day. Smiley

Do you have any idea if this could be done in Europe, too ?

It's possible. However, I don't have any connections there.

If you need a financial partner to make similar services in euros and in Europe, let me know.  If you need investors to help you get some funds, let me know as well.

... Ask and ye shall receive. Send me an email. Smiley

Yup. Spend until the # no longer works and discard. If you need more credit, you just purchase a new number.

Now if only I could keep up with demand better. I'm selling them as fast as I refill them. I'm only getting card numbers in small quantities because I still consider the service to be in 'beta'.

Cheers! Smiley

I don't know if this helps or not...  but whenever I have excess value left on a pre-paid Visa card...  I simply pay my phone bill with the remaining balance.   It's a bill that I will always have to pay anyway... and they will accept a payment in any amount.

Are there refillable Visa gift cards? It would be so amazing.

If Mtgox or someone implemented this and it had low fees I would convert most of my cash savings and just spend off of there as needed.

Nope. Gift cards will never be refillable.

Refillable cards require the seller to comply with KYC regulations. (Take ID, your blood, your house, we want it all... we want your soul!.. damn that song is still in my head! Haha!)

What's Paxum and Payuneer??

Western Union on Broadway near Times Square sells refillable MasterCard / Visa cards. 

They are definitely refillable.  They definately ask for a name and social security number.  I think they might ask for ID too. 

There are charges imposed for every time you "refill" the card. 

Honestly, I don't know what the difference is... between one of those cards and a checking account + Visa debit card.

I wonder if one of those cards can be purchased by party A, and subsequently refilled by party B...?

OK.  I googled paxum and payoneer.

The third listing on Google is YOUR posting here on this forum:  http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2036.0;wap2

So....  What's the rest of the story?   What's the catch?   Why aren't you already doing Paxum?   Why isn't MtGox or MyBitcoin already doing Paxum?

Is there some other legal / compliance issue(s) involved?
If not, why aren't we all carrying a Paxum MasterCard in our wallet right now!?

Uh huh. I had also emailed Jed in private suggesting that he offer that option a while ago. His response was to open this thread.

So....  What's the rest of the story?   What's the catch?   Why aren't you already doing Paxum?   Why isn't MtGox or MyBitcoin already doing Paxum?

There isn't a story. I won't do Paxum/Payoneer because of the KYC requirements involved in dealing it. I suggested that Jed (owner of Mtgox) offer it as a convenient 'cash out' option.

Is there some other legal / compliance issue(s) involved?

Yes. KYC requirements, all participants must show ID, and I'd need to actually have a bank account and corporation to run such a service. I am unwilling to comply with all of the above for various reasons. That's about as specific as I care to get.

As it stands, I'll continue to run Bitcoin2CC exactly the same way it is running right now. I can offer instant one-time VISA #s that are anonymous.

Someone also mentioned that you can buy the #s from me via a Tor .onion address. Yes, this is true. Smiley

I was referring to merchants that accept virtual credit cards without verifying name address, etc, but this list is useful, too! Thanks!

You can register the cards with any info you like. Just tell the merchant the same story.

Hello all,

I'm pleased to announce the availability of U.S. Dollar denominated virtual Visa cards on Bitcoin2CC! Cheesy

(There is currently 1 card left in inventory. More cards will be added tomorrow morning.)

Cheers!

I really think that at least some of the cards should be sold on an auction based system.

That's one good thing about markets: it can handle shortages.  I mean, when there are few resources, prices have to rise.  This allows to ration the ressource, and allocate it to people who need/want it the most.

At least, prices should increase when stock decreases.  Thus anybody could buy at any time, providing that he is willing to overpay.

I have a 200 USD card I bought from bitcoin2cc a while ago which I'm willing to sell...
I've had it on the bitcoin-otc, but there was no interest there.

I'll sell to the highest bidder, let's start at 220 bitcoins. (I have not registered the card).

Any chance of a "waiting list" or even a notification system for when new cards are available? Looks like a great service.
