Germans take it easy. No need for extra regulation since it is just an other currency.

But occupied by who? Seems to me that they're the only Eurozone (as in the currency) country with a trade surplus, so they've got extraordinary free will compared to the rest of the Western world (USA being the blatant exception, of course). They've asked for gold reserve re-patriation from the Federal Reserve, they've complained at the politics level about the NSA affair, and protested very strongly at the citizen level (all without any heavy handed policing breaking it up). They talk more and more of becoming militarily independent again, so despite the US military bases, they seem to be pretty much doing as they like on the world stage.

We have a federal election on 22. of September. So in my opinion it means nothing, because they do NOT want to spread fear at this moment.

This seems like very positive news for Bitcoin, like the government is basically saying hey it's a private matter, not our business.

Also, big thanks to Casacius for those physical bitcoins. They may not be ideal for transacting bitcoins but they have done a lot for people associating the image of bitcoins with something real.

Fidor bank looks to be investing into bitcoins too..

here come the big boys.. prepare for some ramps and dumps soon.

think about it, anyone in europe can go through a german bank/business without having to currency exchange into dollars to get their bitcoins. this means cheap coins. and also with europes fast wire transfer services. it means instant coins..

Cheesy all good news

Sounds good. Bitcoin is very US-centric right now. This can help even out the distribution which is a good thing.

Germany has been independent since 1990. Before that West Germany was occupied by the US, the UK and France and East Germany was occupied by the Soviet Union.

Unless you mean occupied by the EU or something.
