There is more to Bitcoin than bitcoins.

"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.
You know that I mostly agree, and it's totally fine to discuss these things with friends or here in the forum. It doesn't belong in a Web site offering a proprietary product. Describe the card and Bitcoin system, and let potential customers and partners draw their own conclusions regarding political and ideological implications. Maybe it's just me.

They're there, in their room.
Your mining rig is on fire, yet you're very calm.

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

It's not just you. I understand your conservative viewpoint. If this were an IPO for a new fabric softener, then it would be inappropriate to insult your competitor. After all, Big Macs and Quarter Pounders can usually be found within 1000 feet of each other. But this is different. This is a revolution and revolutions need battle cries.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Big macs and quarter pounders come from the same store...

That could be interesting. I hope their system supports unicode.
Why are you specifically asking for unicode?

Probably to support characters for languages other than English.

I don't get it: all I can do is place a gateway. I don't have a gateway.

It's to gauge interest; if you are willing and able to run one, put your location. You would still need to buy it whenever they decide to release it.
