Agree 100%.  Buy a Credit Union.  

I wonder if, at some stage in the bitcoin world, it would make sense for some of the top companies to form a JV and create/buy a credit union/bank in some free banking area, like Panama?  Some grounded, brick and mortar, physical bank that would add one more strong link between Bitcoin and normal financial markets.

Is there value in something like that?

Actually, its in the works! Although not in the immediate future, I'd say definitely within a few years.

I've been flying around the US meeting investors and individuals high in the finance world.
One of my vc's had equity in BankServ, he was responsible for selling the company for $300 Million.
When I met with him last week, he said things would be so much easier for BitInstant and our goals if we buy or start a small Credit Union, and he wants to help us get there

I know the executives of a few exchanges are in talks about it as well.

Hmm, it is a few years Wink

Did anything ever come of trying to start a credit union?
