The Mycelium project was started by developing the Bitcoincard in 2008. The goal was to create an infrastructure-independent, self-powered, ad-hoc network that could dynamically form wherever a sufficient number of nodes came together to support it. Back then there was no bitcoin, and the main purpose of this network was to create an uninterruptible text messaging system that works directly between active and present nodes within a radius of 300 meters, via credit card form factor user devices. When Bitcoin was released, the project team realized that it fits perfectly into the project's ideology, and decided to concentrate its efforts on integrating bitcoin into a software-programmable hardware device.
