So far, it seems Pandora is limited to these highly values currency countries - because the Pandora is expensive. It's as simple as that.

For example, the one to one value of russian ruble to dollar acording to google is 0.030698
Since I´m not russian and haven´t been there yet, I don´t know the standard life price to understand the value of 1 ruble locally.
But russians seem to me as math magicians and I have seen great stuff coming from them on a few platforms, not sure about the pandora community as I don´t know who comes from where.
Here in brazil, one real equals about 0.5 dollars or 0.3 pounds. Altough this is quite a difference, everything (life standard)costs 1/10th to less compared to foreign prices (except electronics cause of taxes), but in a way, it compensates for paying more for the tech.
A 1k pound bounty will mean 3k real. I could state that an employed professional programmer would be making about 4-8k reais per month, so 3k is some very usable value.
