Xapo is a Bitcoin wallet and storage system for the digital currency that hopes to bring Bitcoins more into the mainstream with a debit card. The new currency seems to have people on the fence and even if you're a huge proponent of Bitcoins, a lot of places simply don't accept them as a legitimate type of payment yet.

The Xapo Debit Card is made to work just like a regular credit card, even if a store doesn't accept Bitcoins as a kind of payment. As it stands, Xapo's Bitcoin Debit Card is not affiliated with MasterCard, but Xapo is working to establish a formal partnership through a partner bank, which would make Bitcoins accepted anywhere a MasterCard is.
