I could see this as being first step toward a variant game time card type. Or a way to try and arrange financial connections for those users in areas that don't have the regular credit card options.

Whatever they do with it I expect they'll overly build up the release and not understand why no one is as excited about it as they are, as per usual.

The machinima possibilities for a "What's in your wallet?" parody are endless.

It looks like they are picking up what First Meta is doing. https://www.firstmeta.com/main
I guess they like the idea of a virtual credit card.

The trademark was filed 2-3 months after First Meta launched their own credit system - however, the trademark is categorized for a credit *card*. That most likely means a piece of plastic rather than an intangible item.

Part of me wonders if this is an indicator that folks will soon be able to use a real world credit card to earn LindenĀ® Dollar "reward points' with purchases. I couldn't even begin to figure the ratios on that one.

My first thought, though, was to wonder if all this effort and expense to copyright the eye-in-hand logo would have been better spent on a more attractive one. Perhaps one that actually made sense.

I'm thinking they might be going for the Entropia angle. The queues for paypal transfers are pretty big. It would free up someone internally to do other things. If they could offer a Debit card for that it would be awesome. Crosses fingers.
