It can be a little difficult juggling these cards... My Whopper was good but there were confusing steps getting the BK card delivered to that phone I bought it on...

The trick is you have to have a contact on your phone that you can send your gyft card to already... WITH AN EMAIL ADDY THAT YOU CAN ACCESS ON THAT PHONE.

I sent my BK gift card to some other email address of mine and it wound up in a place I couldn't access on the go and I had to go by the library to log into that email acct and send it to my phone's email addy... And in the end I wound up with two BK cards on my phone somehow, although they have the same card # and reflect the same balance...

So in short: It works but is not perfect yet... Needs streamlining.

I find this to be excellent news because as more and more places accept bitcoins, they will become much more mainstream. Though I think for bitcoins to really take off it has to be easier to convert bitcoins into giftcards than it is to convert cash into gift cards and I think right now it is harder or the same but definitely not easier.

Some of my contractors are already getting paid in bitcoin and this will be really good news for them.

It's just makes a new dimension of financial freedom.
Everyone can eventually start anonymous life without the need of ssn, credit scores, credit cards. No fiat, no taxes, no hassles.
