Hands up how many kiwis on the forum.

New Zealand has traditionally been a testing ground for New Technology.
Is this a good New Technology for NZ.
If So Why?

Please discuss.

Born there.. but defected to Australia as a baby.
(I don't recall why I convinced my parents to leave - but I must have had good reasons)

How do you mean? That global companies use you as market guinea pigs for products they're worried might actually be hare-brained?
I know we tested a few british nukes on ourselves a while back.. pretty sure you guys took a different stance.

Here in Aus, it seems we sometimes get used as a dumping ground for tech product that isn't selling well somewhere else because it's slightly crappy or there is a better model out.

Maybe you get the same crap as us but they tell you it's the newest tech Wink

Me.

I think bitcoin will be good for NZ because bitcoin is good for everybody Smiley

It's not ready for widespread use yet though; once it's easy for grandma to secure her wallet, people will start being interested.

Smartphones are not very widespread here yet.  I guess bitcoin could push people into that market but is it the chicken or the egg?

After the "skynet law" epic fails, I can't see our dumb arse politicians wrapping their heads around it very well.  They might well fall for the inevitable "it's only for drugs and money laundering!!!!!11" crap.

A local exchange would be Awesome.  I was talking to the guys from TradeHill about becoming their NZD partner, but haven't received a reply in a while.  I'll try sending them a reminder.  But yes, in general -- I am keen to help build a direct bridge between BTC and USD in whatever way I can Smiley
