A Faraday cage only needs to be grounded when you want to use it to protect the contents from high voltage. No ground is needed for a foil wrap to reflect radio waves.

If I'm surrounded by metal that is hit by lightning, it doesn't matter if this metal is grounded or not as no matter which two points of my cage I touch these two points will never expose me to high voltage as the cage's resistance is by many magnitudes lower than my body's and thus the electrons would not want to flow through me but rather through the metal - grounded or not.

That's true, as it has much to do with 'skin effect'.  Still, that has almost zero bearing on the question of radio waves penetrating a thin metal sleave.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Maybe the Bitcoincard people should work with The Freedom Box Foundation - (http://www.freedomboxfoundation.org/goals/index.en.html) to have them act as gateway nodes.  I think it would fit with foundations ideology to help the bitcoin network propagate?

judging from what i've seen i would guess yes, the final product can be waterproof - maybe not for deep-diving but it would survive a shower.

the development prototypes have some holes, though so i would not try it with them.

It only needs to be able to survive a washing machine & dryer.

I was thinking more along the lines of taking ladders and a truck around town to super-glue them to tops of things.

If it will survive the washing machine, it will do fine on the top of a vending machine.

They plan on being at CES in Vegas in Jan to launch the card, but not sure how that timeline is progressing.

Im gonna see one of the developers this weekend when he comes to NY to visit us.

Holy crap, I didn't even think about setting up my own local mesh network by just gluing/hiding these things around town. Since they're solar, I don't have to worry about power... that is awesome!

lol their website is currently unavailable, and you think the hole project has been abandoned?

your over reacting to the smallest thing Tongue

if I was bitcoincard, I'd wait a few years b4 releasing, to let the bitcoin user base grow. You only get to be new and hot for a few days, might as well make it count.

I also think it needs more development.
