1  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitkaku on: July 19, 2014, 02:00:52 PM
I would like to present my latest project: Bitkaku!

Bitkaku is a comparison platform for bitcoin related products and services, the first product tackled being rechargeable bitcoin debit cards.

I see these debit cards as a very important step in the bitcoin economy, namely making bitcoin available for everyday use. I realize it is somewhat of a quasi solution: all bitcoin will still need to be converted to fiat currency before the transaction can be completed. It is however a good development in taking the economy to the next level.

Anyway, I started comparing several rechargeable bitcoin debit cards and am slowly filling an extensive spreadsheet with all the details I can find. These products themselves are also very much in development right now and I have had some interesting discoveries.

Right now what I can do is share the spreadsheet with you guys to see what you think. I will stay active comparing these cards and editing the sheet. Using your reactions I could then figure out where to take Bitkaku next!

Any suggestions, criticism, feedback etc. is more than welcome :-)

2  Economy / Economics / Availability of basic needs such as energy and food via Bitcoins on: April 21, 2013, 11:50:39 AM
Looking at the list of Bitcoin merchants (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade), I can't help but wonder why the more basic human needs such as energy and food aren't available yet via Bitcoins.

Bitspend (https://bitspend.net/) is making a nice effort making all products available for sale on Internet also available via Bitcoins. Are there any similar initiatives for bills and groceries, especially in Europe? Would an intermediate such as Bitspend be favoured over merchants accepting it directly?
3  Economy / Economics / Toward a Global Currency - Linking 'Too-big-too-jail' to Bitcoin on: March 25, 2013, 10:49:39 PM
Available here is an article I wrote linking the recent news of the major British bank HSBC not being prosecuted for money laundering and the long term financial crisis of the last years to the general rise of Bitcoin.

Feedback and/or discussion much appreciated.
