Company offering first credit-card for the virtual world

FirstMeta — best company name EVER– also has one of the best mission statements ever:

cardWe believe that people living in virtual worlds need, and deserve, real financial services too.

You can use it to buy representations of things for the representation of yourself to use at SecondLife. It’s Plato’s allegory of the cave gone commercial.

Y’know what’s really meta about the MetaCard? It’s really no different than the non-virtual monetary system. Money is worth something because we all sort of agree that it is and sort of say how much each unit of money can purchase. Now that’s faith based.

BTW, you may be familiar with the real world’s biggest virtual credit card by its other name: The US Treasury.
