How much will I be paid for the traffic going over my node?

The same amount you get paid for relaying bitcoin transactions.

What? Why? Who should pay you for running a gateway?
My understanding is that merchants should provide gateway for their customers.

I see no reason why you should be payed for credit card POS terminal or bitcoincard GW.

I was thinking about providing the gateway myself, but area I live in is not worth it...

I agree if they only sell the cards via buying gateway nodes at first that should help early adoption.  If they could sell each gateway node with five cards for <=$10 delivered that would really help early adoption.  Also if they could do a deal that physical bitcoin merchants could give them out free or the change from a purchase on a free card that would help adoption two.

how lame

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

but the requirement for the entire world to build infrastructure around it instead of using what's already there is not only lazy, it's downright unimaginative and asinine.
I guess that's what many would say about Bitcoin vs. the traditional banking system. I'm sure Satoshi was just too lazy to open up a Paypal account Wink

may i use this in my sig?

I'm having doubts about this project moving forward. There are already several people working on much simpler smartcard schemes that seem much simpler and use common components.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Heh, if you had seen the size of their team and how much money is being put into it, I think your doubts would disappear lol.

Yeah, I don't doubt they have the capability of doing this. On second thought, it would only benefit Bitcoincard to have competing smartcard systems.

doesn't matter, still operating system. (think windows embedded edition)

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

From the page: http://bitcoincard.org/movement.php

"If Bitcoin succeeds, it is likely that PayPal and Western Union would be removed from the marketplace. The Federal Reserve (and every central bank) would be made redundant. "Disruptive technology" is thus an understatement. "

Remove this, it will probably not happen in 30-40 years anyway if ever. Its just unnecessary to create enemies, and people are afraid of using technology that threatens the society the are used to and believe, works.


Yes. Serious folks who want to do business and develop products keep their ideology to themselves and friends. Statements like this, and attempts to have users directly pay for infrastructure of a secretive, closed-source project, make me very cautious about the card.
At this point I consider it vaporware, and possibly a scam where government-hating sheep are lured in by strong statements like the one above.

I would love to be proven wrong on this one ASAP, and might consider buying a dongle then.

Just because it is inflammatory doesn't make it less true. Bitcoin isn't just a disruptive technology, it is an Extinction Level Event for the cabals of finance and tyranny. PayPal and Western Union better adapt to the new climate, because the dinosaurs are going extinct.

No, proprietary.

This. Publish the source code (GPL, AGPL, BSD, MIT,...?) and I will buy one (card + usb transmitter)…
