Russia still leads the way
This is because russians doesn't have money and job, they have pure interest and a lot of spare time.
You can see this if you compare volumes on mtgox and btcex.
Not having money and job, is not a reason to be interested in Bitcoins- Having a currency messed around by gangsters is.
There are a fair share of humans with little money and no job and they are not all in Russia. Some live near me and some near you but they are watching TV probably.
Half of all millionaires in Europe reside in Russia-
100 Billionaires reside in Russia-
There is great potential for Bitcoin usage in Russia, in my opinion; still needing to reach a tipping point fair enough but I find it quite encouraging and positive-
