Interest in bitcoins has reached fever pitch around the world in the last month. But there's one euro zone country that's firmly tuned into the zeitgeist more so than even the U.S. or Japan.
According to Google Trends, Finland is the country with the most number of Google searches for the word "bitcoin" in the past 12 months.
"Finland has a very strong geek culture and tradition, DIY-culture and can-do attitude. Many digital innovations, like IRC (Internet Relay Chat), Linux and SSH (Communications Security Corporation) are developed in Finland," Vesa Linja-aho, an engineering and economics lecturer at a Helsinki university told CNBC.com.
