A lot of risk, but it could be done and probably will be done in the near future. If it does, hopefully it works.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

Instead of worrying about plastic, why not NFC?

We are use to plastic cards but paying with bitcoin-qt app with your Android works pretty well

It is safer not to keep too much bitcoins on your phone though, like you don't let too much money in your wallet

iam sure there have been many attempts to this before as well but all comes along with many risks so i don't think people will most likely use a cc even if there will be one. Smiley

I know, but given Credit Cards are a "Pull" technology, and NFC can be a "Push, on demand" tech where you only expose what you want to spend, I was just thinking a mobile hot wallet with NFC would be an easier hill to climb. Yeah, you'd need buy-in from processors, but it could avoid a few issues with dealing with card companies.

I have had chipped cards and now have the NFC wallet for my credit cards, but I admit I love to try things out early.

I very rarely carry cash unless I'm heading to the casino, so I get the point about carrying money.
