Bisher kann man mit der dezentralen Internet-Währung Bitcoin nur in wenigen Ausnahmefällen direkt etwas bezahlen. Dienstleister bieten stattdessen gegen eine Gebühr den Umtausch in breiter akzeptierte Währungen wie Dollar oder Euro an. Einer dieser Umtausch-Dienste, das junge Unternehmen Bitinstant, will das nun deutlich vereinfachen.

Quote
Bitinstant würde damit zwar nicht die erste Bitcoin-Debitkarte auf den Markt bringen, hätte aber wohl das attraktivste Angebot - und eine Firmenadresse in den USA sowie namentlich bekannte Mitarbeiter. Andere Anbieter verlangen deutlich höhere Transaktionsgebühren und geben Postfächer auf den Virgin Islands oder in Panama als Adresse an - wenn sie ihre Adresse nicht ganz verschleiern. Nicht gerade vertrauensfördernd.

Neutral tone, slightly positive. Short coverage of the announcement (1 page). Unlike earlier articles makes this one little attempt to explain bitcoin itself.

The "SPIEGEL" is one of Germany's most read magazines. The online platform is also very well visited:

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!
