"There are almost 300 machines connecting to the Bitcoin network from inside China," Norman added.
That's a very low
number, I hope that it's because of known chinese firewall problems and alike.
And if it's the case, giving them (and possibly other) the possibility to operate the bitcoin network in a stealth mode could be useful.
Yet Norman has his own thoughts on the currency's future in China. "Users in China have no way of paying or accepting payments without incurring huge fees and chargeback costs from services like VISA, MasterCard and PayPal," he said.
That's a great news: I look forward to a billion chinese users using bitcoin in a near future
