If you want to get this card in the hands of as many people as possible, use the profit stream to lower fees. It's an obvious selling point that will differentiate this from other card options the customer will see. It's so obvious, Dash already has "be your own bank" how about "be your own credit card company" as well.
Thats what Im going to do.

How about 50/50
Lower fees (50%) and the rest goes towards a lottery among cardholders ..
So you get insentiviced to have a card say once every blue moon some Duffs pops into your wallet :D
(Duff = same same what Satoshis are in BTC)

Great to see @CharlieShrem on board. Awesome idea!
I have a question regarding DASH -> fiat conversion with payza. When does the conversion take place? When transfering DASH to the payza account or when spending them with the card?

I will work with the Payza development team to integrate the ability to sell DASH onto the card and buy DASH as well.
Payza will have the full integration locked down. They have been doing BTC <--> fiat since 2014 that I set up.
"Locked down" could mean a lot of things...

So, they've got it handled, or they're going to stand in the way because they have other interests?

Seriosuly. Talk to @kodaxx

@CharlieShrem proposal looks great and will greatly help provide services and access to those countries outside the western bubble. Card design looks fantastic as well. Very excited about this. 3 month delivery timescale also seems very promising and fair. Now that the proposal is live to increase maximum exposure and gain support, can I suggest you do a tweet about proposal with card image. The more coverage and social backing your proposal gets the more inclined the masternode holders will be to back you. Also considering time limitation on proposal and due to the magnitude of this proposal in terms of details, I think it would be very wise for you to do a special spotlight proposal interview with @amanda_b_johnson This way you can address the most common FAQ and go in to more details about your vision for project. I wish you success.

I picked up a bitpay card a couple months ago and have not loaded it up yet.. it's hard for me to release crypto into fiat.
The same would probably happen with a dash debit card, but I still would want one asap.

I was thinking...

I assume a lot of MNOs might signup for this card and transfer part of their rewards to the card. And thus (without mixing) it would be relatively easy to identify MNOs. But I don't say this in a negative way, it makes me think that Mr Shrem would be in a good position to be an independent agent for Proof of Uniqueness.. that is to say, every card issued would be AML'd / KYC'd and every load directly from a MN / miner could trigger an event. And this is exactly what dash needs; proof that MNs really are distributed and not tied up in the hands of a few.

More so, being able to distinguish between card loading from MN / miners / end users might have other benefits... not sure what exactly but perhaps something like a Dash Prime Members Club... luxury discounts? I don't know, I'm just throwing the idea out there....

She said she would rather to wait until funded.
@CharlieShrem Actually I think Amanda is right. With respect it would be unfair to other proposals to give you special red carpet treatment. As the official Dash channel is not really positioned for this. When funded yes, before not so much. However I still think it would be wise to do a video and share it on your social media. Time goes fast on proposal votes. If community see your passion for project I can not see why they would vote no. Honestly if it was me I would make an announcement on twitter and set up a live broadcast or google hangout and do a 5 min summary of proposal and take some questions afterwards. Just my 2 cents.

Happy to do a Q&A Google Hangout. I still have things to learn about DASH. Maybe someone on the Dash Team wants to do a coffee table style chat with me?

I really like the branding angle here, I recently used my BitPay visa cad at a store and the cashier ask me if I was a bitcoin farmer, I knew what he meant but I was taken back because the card shows the word BitPay on it, not Bitcoin.

@CharlieShrem if you are looking for alternative designs drop me a line, info in your inbox.

Sounds like solid advice. I'd also be interested in hearing an AMA from Charlie.

Not sure if anyone else mention it here or on the central one, but why try to get DASH people back into FIAT? Shouldnt it be better channeled to make it easier for vendors to take DASH directly?

Because of the CC infrastructure already there.

I agree that ultimately i want to see merchants accept dash directly but i think that this has short term value because of the CC infrastructure already in place, as has already been commented above. Just how short term, i do not know.

web sites that accept bitcoin dont always take dash, start with both small vendors on a pos system. And getting online vendors to accept dash that perform a service where timing matters. These cards cover the gap until one day the ecosystem is so robust converting back to fiat will be the hard part.
