sweden isn't a big surprise really. I guess the news is spreading there quickly.
What I'm waiting for is for the giants in Asia to wake up and smell the bitcoins. Looking at China and India specifically.
there are some fairly draconian laws in china about the use of any
kind of cryptography. it's hard to say how they'd react to the use of the essentially unbreakable crypto in Bitcoin - but poorly, i would think.
china might be the first serious test of a Bitcoin v/s a major government scenario. the reg'lar folks in china... they sure do like their money...
China is very lax on VPN though. Perhaps it's because big business can't operate without VPN.
