How much USD do you keep in your daily life?
You know, USD is of course more widely accepted all over the world,
and if you go to the shops to try to use USD, there ARE some chances they will accept your USD.

But, how much USD do you keep in your daily life?
SO, how much BTC are you going to keep in your daily life?

If you see any of my suggestions useful, please donate me. http://btc.to/ec

None. If I need to use USD, it's simplest to just pay with a credit card. Not that I ever do need USD apart from buying things on the internet.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

USD: none. The only times I might have needed it is when travelling, and even then I'd tend to use Sterling or Euro cash or travellers cheques and some local currency, if I'm able to get it in the UK.

BTC: as much as I can avoid spending :-)

Not USD but here in Sweden (state currency SEK) some shops and some ATMs handle EUR. It's not very common, though.

I use it for buying most hardware and sometimes some other expensive stuff. But I use my cuerrency also for that. I also keep my savings on USD. But well, here we dont have a really stable currency, so its a very common thing around here. Im from Argentina.

I hope to use bitcoins instead of both of them, and try to live with it  Grin

Here in Russia, we are recommended by "analytics",  to held 1/3 of our savings in rubles, 1/3 in euros, and 1/3 in USD.
"Ruble" is highly dependable on foreign economics, due to source nature of Russian economic.
Therefore, due to balance between 2 worldwide currencies, ruble is stable "enough" (not stable at all). And of cos, highly depends on oil\gas prices. Lots of people will be glad to choose other alternative for their savings, but gold and diamonds trading is under government control, -
with suppressive taxes. Trading them without  government  control is a state case, - with lots of years, in not so comfortable prison as punishment.
USD is not accepted in stores like payment. That was prohibited  in late 90-s. Lots of stores show their prices  in УЕ (Условная Единица - Conventional Unit (CU)) that are commonly referred to USD. Big supermarkets and markets have a lot of exchangers all over the place.
You always can find somebody, who will accept them as payment (unofficially) .
In person to person, deals, - USD and Euro`s are in common practice.
 
You can understand now, why "Bitcoin" google trends show Russia on first place of regions.

We will  meet in not-so-distant future.

Absolutely 0, USD is less stable than the EUR, so no reason for me to have a worse currency at home.
