I AM european, living in Europe. But thats not important. What would be a clear indicator of the "Euro crisis [or whatever] giving BTC a boost" would be a rise in volume on the exchanges. But thats not happening!
Therefore all of that recent euro crisis/bitcoin boost talk is just fantasy.
What the hell are you smoking? I checked the volumes a few weeks ago and I had to double check now. The numbers are as follows, the last 30 days of trading compared to the average 30 days of last 6 months. Based on EUR volume.
These numbers are approximations based on quick calculations. I added Bitstamp because a lot of Europeans use it even though it uses USD.
Mt. Gox EUR: +20%
Intersango EUR: +80%
Bitstamp USD: +100%
What you're talking about is empirically wrong. The volumes have been WAY up for months for Euros. Mt. Gox USD has been going down but it's difficult to say how much of that is related to this.
As a sidenote BTC-E is +100% and that one is used by a lot of Russians. Russia is not in the Euro so that's not directly related to this, but anyway.
