I took per-country data from bitcoinstatus.rowit.co.uk, and calculated per-capita adoption based on population size (taken from Wikipedia).
Here is the list in descending order of nodes per 100,000 people, and another one per 100,000 internet users:

I took per-country data from bitcoinstatus.rowit.co.uk, and calculated per-capita adoption based on population size (taken from Wikipedia).
Here is the list in descending order of nodes per 100,000:

Belize is a country of only 300k people and I know of at least 3 people using bitcoin. 

You'd think we would have made the list.

Glad to hear that. The reasons for not seeing Belize in the Rowit list may be:

- No data collection is perfect, and Rowit is certainly not an exception.
- Those three people would need to be running their clients with the listening port open (I think).
- IP-to-country databases are sometimes wrong.

Interesting. Perhaps you want to calculate it per internet user though, instead of per capita:

Cool stuff, didn't realize we're 4th and 3rd measuring adoption like this but I think it's awesome and after Tuesday's presentation we held at a popular cyber cafe in our capital city there might be even more!

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

Very cool. I'd love to see that data automatically updated (daily) and represented on a world map. You could sit back and watch bitcoin taking over the world.

The first country, Finland, has an extremely high education rate. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hjvk8aDqy8)


The second country, Iceland, just got through putting their bankers in jail. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64eI831eKY8)


Putting them together, we see that the smart people, who put the blame where it should be ... go with bitcoin.

Let's not break out the champagne yet, 4 out of 100,000 is still laughable adoption stats.

Need some smart devs to come out with something to work on those dirt cheap nokia phones.

Bitcoin will eat M-Pesa for lunch once that happens and as long as some mining power will process the transactions on a fee scale people in those countries could support.

I think they can manage 50k satoshi per transaction. Smiley
