Has it been confirmed that Gavin wasn't referring to the BitInstant debit card?

Well, sort of. At least according to BitInstant CEO this September announcement has nothing to do with the debit card.

well i think there are only a few ways to bring stablization into the market.... my favorite: more money through a major investment or a major merchant accepting btc now.

It would shoot the price to the moon instead of stabilize.

Yes, it was mentioned earlier but my favorite so far is Kim Dotcom.

Yep, I am hoping Dotcom accepts bitcoins for payments on his megabox service Smiley

It would be even better if bitcoins would be the only method of payment.  Grin

It might have to be! Paypal, Visa and Mastercard are all out. Most international bank transactions seem to use US-based banks as intermediaries. What else is left?

Just imagine panic buying frenzy caused by this.  Grin

The 0.7 release very likely has nothing to do with this major announcement. The 0.7 release is an improvement but there is nothing there that I'd consider major, so let's just wait.

I'd say adding a rule to the protocol is worth a major announcement. so when the rc days are over, prepare for blocks 2.0 (not enforced until vast majority upgrades)

I don't see any other practical payment method he could take, TBH. Unless he plans to compete with BTC with his own cryptocurrency.

Both of those companies rely heavily on the current monetary system to exist. I doubt they want to stir the pot like that.

I don't think Dotcom is THE announcement, but someone mentioned it, so I'll expand on why I think Dotcom is interested.  Kim Dotcom did a similar scheme where he said he was saving a company from bankruptcy by investing a bunch, but he didn't, and instead sold his shares after the rumor caused the price to go up. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Dotcom#Insider_trading_and_embezzlement)  I can see him wanting to do something like this to try and create another rise to gain similar rewards.

My guts agree with you. Dotcom is not a nice and honest person. But I doubt he is invested in Bitcoin. That's not his shoe size.

Edit: yet.

I didn't say that but I guess it's a typo on your end. I don't know him personally, although a person I ultimately trust claims I have been at an event with him long before he was in the news. Said person says he's been an arrogant idiot causing trouble back then and arrogant is what I find his public statements, too, so SuperP's concern doesn't sound far fetched to me.
