Are these guys for real?
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=73978.0;all

They've got an awesome idea for bitcoin gift cards, but the radio silence after accepting bitcoins and not shipping the cards is a little disconcerting.

I put 10 BTC in, so it's not a big deal to me if it's a scam. Just a shame (and such a great idea gone to waste!). Anyone else in this situation?

They are definitely real and legit, they forked up good money for their own booth at the CES in Las Vegas this year.  They have been working on these cards for quite a while now.

The models in their images are their real acquaintances and/or employees as well, not clip art.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

That's good to hear. I think their idea will really help the bitcoin community spread. The expiring bitcoin card is brilliant.

I'll just have to be patient. I have no problem with that. Revolutionary ideas take time Smiley

I would personally vouch for both jjjrmy and bit-pay merchant solutions.

I have met these guys in person and we meetup regularly to buy burgers and beers with bitcoins.

They both sound great, but I'm also interested in whatever happened to the cards. Lost in the mail?
