Actor Ashton Kutcher is among the early investors in Dwolla, an Iowa tech startup that lets users transfer money or pay for things through their smartphones or online for a flat fee of 25 cents per transaction.

The “Two and a Half Men” star didn’t disclose the size of the investment his venture capital company made in Dwolla, which is hoping to lure customers seeking an alternative to the percentage-based fees typical of credit card purchases and other online payment methods.

I like have to say is...eh

Which means the real question is, how many Bitcoins does Ashton have?

I seriously wonder if he even knows Bitcoins involvement in Dwolla's success.

Btw, at Future of Money next week during my presentation, I plan on revealing to the public how much of Dwolla's success was attributed to Bitcoin

I saw one of their interviews with Mr. Ashton and Ben  they seriously make Dwolla seem like the next best thing since slicebread.  Ashton sounds like a moron!

edit: I should qualify my statement about Mr. Ashton  - they were rambling on about how Dwolla takes out the costs of Fraud or something...I was like huh lol...

Oh yea!  We need 30 iphone cameras so we can do a 360 degree Matrix style rotation face reaction from Ben Milne.

Seriously, Dwolla's success is based on bitcoin and this has been hidden from investors including the latest round and Ashton.

Now THAT my friend...would go viral! Make sure to get some shots of Jered smiling and giving his thumbs up

EDIT:

Ok, I just found out there is a private 'meet and greet' for speakers. That means Jered, Ben and myself will be in an even smaller room together the night before

Ok, here is the evidence which you will need to show Dwolla rise coincides with Bitcoin's rise:

I will pay 10 BTC for a video of his reaction. I want a raw copy though, not just a Youtube link. I'm working on a project to remedy my early endorsement of Dwolla for Bitcoiners in its infancy and this video would help.

Don't pay evoorhees yet, for one more thing needs to be added to that great chart to make it more greater (sic)--the point where Dwolla no longer needs Bitcoin/Tradehill (or Tradehill/Bitcoin).

Sgornick was offering to trade Bitcoin for Dwolla dollars during their January promotion where if you followed them on Twitter they gave you a free $1, I think. And Keefe was accepting Dwolla money for transfers into MtGox as well, I remember I moved my first $500 via his Dwolla account back in mid-February. I think the "explosion" period was around the time that MtGox and Tradehill starting accepting it.
