Check this out:

Certainly due to the slashdot article about BTC/USD parity.

An even more pronounced spike is found on Wikipedia:

Does anyone know why Russia appears to be so much more interested in Bitcoin than other countries? We even have a Russian specific subforum here.

Russia has a rich history of on-line currencies, bitcoin is just another chapter in that story.
And lot of services are located in Russia that you'd rather pay for without providing your real name & personal id (via bank p.ex.)
so they might be quicker at adopting bitcoin than the rest of the world in their own interest.


You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.

Interestingly most of the google queries actually come from Russia, where the trading volume in bitcoins is relatively small.

When I was trading at Bitcoin Market (where you see the PayPal addresses of the people you trade with), all of my trades except one were to .ru addresses.
