His prior tweet was also very nice:

Quote
Bitcoin: The currency of the future? Everyone should use it. Break the U.S. payment processing monopoly. http://www.techweekeurope.co.uk/interview/bitcoin-the-currency-of-the-future-109318
https://twitter.com/KimDotcom/status/308615839974817793

Possibly these were the catalyst for the $36 handle...?

I looked and charlie actually tweeted him and said lets compete and that is even cooler. I think instead of trying to gain an aid in his public image, he creating a market for bitcoin debt cards with two different options.

I hope he isn't doing it only because he invested heavily in Bitcoin and now he wants to keep the BTC price going up...

My guess is that he is seeing the Bitcoin income come in from his current venture Mega.co.nz. By the way selling Mega for Bitcoin is far more likley to impact the BTC / USD exchange rate than another Bitcoin debit card.  

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card

I hope he pulls it off Grin  And that it doesn't come with a really high fee for using it.

yeah, thought about that too. would be the same thing that bulls/bears do in the speculation sub-forum, but with a much bigger impact on the market.

Lol @ Shrem

Let's see @KimDotcom try to compete with the #BitInstant Debit card. Let's rock and roll #Bitcoin


You mean the debit card that was promised like, a year ago? I think we're far beyond the point of vaporware status.

Its just as vaporware as Kim's, I imagine its no easy feat putting out a debit card.

Okpay debit card is foundable with bitcoins since ages.

They also lowered fees recently.

The tweet makes me question his intentions. He has already publicly pumped and dumped a stock, doing the same with an anonymous asset would be perfect.
