This tech is getting seriously dated. It won't be much longer before it doesn't even matter anymore.  And old android smartphone & a gotenna transceiver and this tech would be irrelevant.

"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."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

I haven't agreed with you much in the past MoonShadow but have to admit you nailed this one.

The tech is mostly not even here yet, actually. Thats why it took so long to build this. Cutting edge tech companies would sign a contract with us, then go out of business, and we'd have to spend 2 months looking for a replacement and redesigning the hardware.

Right now the cards are fully functional. I had one to show at the Miami Bitcoin Conference a few months back. It's fully flexible (board, screen, battery), dirt proof, and water resistant. Has connectors to charge and transmit data, and a radio to do the same. Also has actual working buttons. And despite this, it is still only as thin as a credit card. It would have been ready for production and sale last month, but we discovered that if you flex it too much the gold leads connecting the CPU can cross and short out, so we have had to move the CPU to the other side, and that means redesign the board connections, order more prototypes from the factory, and do more vigorous testing. We hope to get prototypes in around June or so. In the mean time, we also got a $150,000 grant for "innovative hardware" or something, to redesign the UI and make it completely intuitive out-of-the-box. So, if all goes well and all the testing comes back with good results, we may be able to get production going by the end of this fall. Tiny things can cause huge delays with these things.

I'd be interested to see a prototype.

You'd have to show up at a conference in Europe that Mycelium attends. There aren't any prototypes in US unfortunately.

There is ample evidence that the smartphone Bitcoin wallet is much easier and cheaper to deploy, but the card could be easier to use.

The marketplace decides these things.

Exactly. With a qr code many things can become a "bitcoin card" The same way that credit cards are coming to phones as well.

I have actually followed this for quite a while now. When are you guys attending a conference next in Europe?

<helo> funny that this proposal grows the maximum block size to 8GB, and is seen as a compromise
<helo> oh, you don't like a 20x increase? well how about 8192x increase?

Matt was one of the reasons I got into Bitcoin in the first place. I registered here as CornedBeefHash years ago and got into several lengthy conversations with him. He really was into Bitcoin big time. His trolling and stupid shit like BitTalk.TV, the Christmas Special, fucking with Goat and fucking with Theymos kept me coming back for more. I would accidentally learn a little more each time I came here to see what happy horseshit he was up to today. I ended up mining and saving and making money because of him.

BTW: doesn't Bitcoincard remind you a little of the Ellet vaporware that Matt started? Friggin hilarious.

-vaporware. why can't anybody just release product anymore without creating hype first

Do you have a better way of getting investment money without working??

People think that because they made a video about a unicorn, they actually made a unicorn.  lol - these guys are hilarious.  And so are the jokers who give them any money.
