    As I know, the just received another 13 mil funding from Sony Financial ventures. Wondering whether they become anxious for the last two days. LoL

    Why to be so anxious?

    They look phenomenal but so does ePayments and a lot of the other BTC/Debit Card/Bank Wire solutions.

    The problem is these services have a LOT of trouble keeping their relationships with banks/MasterCard because they deal in BTC / overseas relationships.

    These guys are regulated and look great but just like ePayments, MisterTango, and the other similar services, they have trouble keeping these things consistent.
    Even CoinBase recently lost their accounts with Barclays UK.

    People really, really underestimate how tight the global banking system has got ESPECIALLY for margin trading services.

    Quick update - it seems this service is only available to German and possibly Austrian citizens.

    I checked with a friend of mine and he did not believe so.
    Most of the companies that issue a debit card can only do EU as well.
    BTC+Card+Wire functionality is very hard to do the last year.
