Bitcoin truly fascinates me, I love its potential, if it is widely adopted how long before you can spend bitcoins via a 'bank card' or probably more impressive if a bank adopts it.

Bitcoin is very rebellious currency. Neither governments, nor traditional banks will ever support it as bitcoin means no centralized control.

Although there are many "new breed" entities, like bitcoin exchanges and bitcoin ecommerce solutions that quickly adopting bitcoin.

I can image PayPal or some other payment services provider deciding to integrate it as a payment method.

Paypal hates bitcoin and routinely suspends user accounts that are suspected in trading bitcoins.

Remember: bitcoin adoption means death to entities that likes to tightly control monetary instruments and transactions. There is lots of resistance for bitcoin
