I was doing a little research in google trends in order to understand as places has more Regional interest for BTC this year,When I came across a very different result than I expected to see.

The first country on the list is slovenia (link below) , I've never seen anything that relates slovenia with BTC,I searched on google but did not find much related thing what else is found on the nuclear deal with Iran (hahaha).

Google Trends https://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=Bitcoin&date=1%2F2015%2012m&cmpt=q&tz=Etc%2FGMT%2B3

Nuclear deal Iran and Slovenia http://en.apa.az/xeber_slovenia_hails_nuclear_deal_with_iran_229730.html

Could someone explain to me why slovenia has a high level of research for BTC?

And you could watch a video "Bitcoin in Ljubljana" here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tP6-xQoO9PI

Slovenians are smart people. The could the exact opposite of the British. You don't see much binge drinking in Ljubljana, and when the Brits are big spenders, the Slovenians are big savers. They're the people who make you believe in Europe. If there ware only Germans, Slovenians, Estonians and people like that in the EU, it would rule the world. Unfortunately, people like the Greeks or the French are wrecking it.

If you're looking for a trading/lending place,
better avoid Poloniex, as it socializes losses.

isn't bitstamp based in slovenia(or their bank at least)? i think that is your answer

the high interest come from there, so it isn't a new thing, because bitstamp is fairly old as an exchange

There are a lot of exchanges that are based over those countries. I think besides Bitstamp, BTC-e was also from slovenia, which made a lot of people weary of sending money over there. There shouldn't be any problem tho, with average SEPA transaction I would have any worries. The problem would be if your local bank sends some transaction to slovenia, it may raise some alarms.

Based in the UK in the sense of renting a small box for post to arrive at. All the real work happens in Slovenia.

I think Coinbase's EU bank is Estonian.

Hmm yeah Bitstamp is based in UK now, but initially operated in Slovenia then moved to UK in April 2013. The Bitstamp CEO is a Slovenian entrepreneur and bitcoin enthusiast, Nejc Kodrič.

It's in the UK on paper and that's all. Every name I've heard associated with it is Slovenian.

From the wikipedia page - 'The company is registered in Reading in the UK, but this is in fact just the offices of UK PLC, a company specialising in company formation and which, amongst its services, allows companies to use its own address as their registered office, effectively acting as a forwarding address. There is no clear information available as to where Bitstamp's operations are located or whether they actually have any presence at all in the UK, or are still run out of Slovenia.'

Basically what you guys are talking is that Bitstamp is encouraging the consumption of BTC in Slovenia?

what strategy they are using?

BTC-e is actually based in Bulgaria, which is still part of the EU so there shouldn't be any problems. I think there was a russian based exchange, and thats where people had a lot of doubts depositing money over there.

No one knows. It seems you need to translate your moaning into Russian to actually get noticed if you have a problem. They claimed to be under Cypress jurisdiction at one point. Bulgaria seems to be the one that pops up most often now.

It would be lovely to have EU exchanges without a single question mark surrounding them. It still amazes me that people put up with it.

1.One of the reason could be  Bitstamp, a Slovenia based Bitcoin exchange, is one of toppers in terms of trading volume.(Now in UK)
2.Another reason could be solvenia is Europe's Top 5 Countries for Bitcoin ATMs.

Your question is like asking "Why the Americans are so capable to have created the most powerful and developed economy of the world?". There are thousand thoughts and arguments that can be told. Some will be right and some others wrong. But one it will be for sure the right one. Simple because are the most capable people in the world. Are they who which their minds and their hands that have created such economy.

Same with the Slovenians. The research is more developed there because the Slovenians are the most interested people about bitcoin. There are to many people there that are attracted by bitcoin. Maybe not to many common people (I don't know this) but for sure researchers yes. And those people (those who made research) occupy their time and work around and about it. More simple than that cannot be.  Cheesy

If that will be not correct, in the article you have read or in some other place in internet or library must be mentioned the reasons which boost this people to be such friendly with bitcoin. If there are not such the above interpretation remain the most plausible.
