Bitcoin MasterCard: Followup Interview With Charlie Shrem #bitcoin

I was recently witness to some breaking news that garnered quite a response. In the first 72 hours, the news of the Bitcoin MasterCard resulted in 200+ tweets, I was cited as a source for over a hundred other blogs including heavy-hitters like Engadget and made it to the #2 spot on the front page of Hacker News . I have never in my life written anything that garnered quite so much attention. Apparently, the folks at BitInstant were caught just as off-guard by the unexpected product release. Luckily, co-founder Charlie Shrem was about to spend the weekend just a few miles away from my home in Las Vegas and graciously agreed to an interview. We met in the Vesper bar in the lobby of the Cosmopolitan hotel/casino to discuss the Bitcoin MasterCard and Bitcoin in general. These are the results of that interview.
