Any ideas regarding companies that could benefit from all the Bitcoin activity?

In reading through the Dwolla info it appears they hold customer funds at a small publicly traded bank (Midwestone, MOFG). Assuming traders are using the Dwolla/Mt. Gox route to buy Bitcoin I would think this bank would benefit from an ever increasing amount of cash (float) flowing through their coffers.....I'm sure there are other companies that might benefit with a few degrees of separation as well but this is the only one that I've found that is investable .......

Interestingly Midwestone Financial, one of the banks used by Dwolla for its deposits is up 8% since June 9 on much higher daily volume (S&P 500 is down 2% since then). Seems like others have also figured this stock as a public way to play to the online currency and banking revolution!

$AMD ?

Here's and example of why:

Though GPUs are just a tiny fraction of AMDs business.

Perhaps FPGA manufacturers are the next to benefit?

Yes MOFG has bubbled up recently(:     I guess tools used by the miners would also be an interesting public way to play the revolution,  assuming they also have applications for the general public and growth!

MOFG up again today and up over 10% since my June 9 post (was 12.6 at the time)! Starting to behave like a pre-crash Bitcoin: higher volume and higher highs....maybe the wall street hacks who read this forum have picked up a few shares.....

Cool charts!  Let's see how it turns out. Maybe there are some stock mining tools at work(:
