The Israeli CounterParty facebook group already has 200+ members

Its mostly in Hebrew, but everyone reads English so come say hi.

great - what is the reason for the "huge" interest in xcp in israel?

There’s a very active bitcoin community in Tel Aviv, many are excited with the new possibilities of the protocol and impressed with the achievements of the CounterParty devs. I guess we should also thank the MasterCoin and ColoredCoins guys who opened the door and made quite a good job explaining the ideas in meetups and conferences here, so when CP arrived and just did it faster and better it made an impact.
