Count me in if you've not yet reached the magic number?

The name is very good when considering a global perspective. I hope it'll make it very simple and cheap to buy from merchants/pay people for services the world over.

Have you considered using the currency sign somehow in the graphics?

You said that you are a simple bitUSD-only wallet provider. Is this a kind of "keep it simple stupid" approach, or do you have other specific reasons for limiting your remit?

If things really take off in the future, and other 'bitCurrencies' gain huge liquidity, would you expand to include these?

Historically cash has been a great way to transact, offering a lot of privacy. What will be the stance of bitCash on privacy? Do you expect to add privacy features to the wallet for example? I suppose it will depend in part upon how BitShares progresses, but do you have any fundamental views or approaches in this regard?

Yes that's the plan to make it a dominant payment platform.

Intersesting.  I like the symbol.  Reminds me of ubuntu.  We may use this down the road for something so thanks!

Yes bitUSD is a start to keep it extremely simple and focused, but we will probably expand sooner than later in bitEUR/bitCNY and develop partnerships in Europe and China.

Yes we'll want to add stealth transactions eventually, but the first wallet is geared towards the mainstream public so ease-of-use will be the primary concern.    I think privacy in various forms are very important , starting from 'Defensive Privacy' and that's where stealth transactions help: http://www.lifewithalacrity.com/2015/04/the-four-kinds-of-privacy.html

Blockchains are built around anti-censorship rather than privacy so we'll have to start with that.  Our simple wallet will use Facebook authentication to make it extremely easy so in some ways will have slightly less ''personal & contextual privacy' than Bitcoin.  We will have more 'personal & contextual privacy' than the popular Venmo which takes the approach of intentionally sharing what specific transactions people in your network are making.   We want to cater to the mainstream with our first simple/'spending cash'/'money clip' wallet.   However we expect people with larger amounts of money & merchants/businesses will use some form of stealth transactions and create more pseudonymous accounts to complement their spending wallet.

I really like the approach. I know that if I had a free wallet for bitUSD and that I was offered to "upgrade" to get more features such as stealth transaction...I would buy in a heartbeat!

I don't know merivercap! It was a french guy and we smoked in the coffeeshop and I wanted a name which doesn't sound too shabby and chateaux sounded a little corny i think they say in english or a little cheap and not at the same time. It was a laughter and for me it means spots around the planet where there is peace and freedom. And money, good new money from the web at the dollarspots.

... Our simple wallet will use Facebook authentication to make it extremely easy so in some ways will have slightly less ''personal & contextual privacy' than Bitcoin... 

I refuse to use facebook.  Will you have other means of authentication?  Basic email sign up?
