Hope the Argentinians like not having medicines and certain foods. There are times in Caracas where you can't buy what you want cause it isn't there.

Purchases outside Argentina using peso-denominated cards soared 48 percent in June compared to the year before, obligating the central bank to send $289 million out of the country in just one month.
Is 289 M$ in a month supposed to be a big sum?
Sounds pretty casual for a central bank.

But who wants to buy pesos?
If everyone is only wanting to sell, then it can't work.
On the other hand, they can sell physical good for Bitcoins.

That's just what is was wondering about.
It would make more sense to buy commodities and whatnot.

Tourists can exchange their foreign currency, including BTC, for pesos on the blue market (black market/real market).

Thats right. In fact, a tourist visiting Argentina would have 25% more spending money, if they bring their spending money in the form of bitcoins, and not electronic cards.

I will try to post this information on travel forums, which should promote bitcoin adoption.

Black market currency exchanger. If you can turn around your holdings fast enough, even Rials become an option. The ARS' inflation rate is not too bad if you operate on a daily basis though.

They've recently nationalized the oil companies, it's sad to see them go down this route.

They've recently re-socialised their wealth, it's great to see them going up this route Smiley.

....

Argentina is on the fast track of becoming the new Venezuela. It is a shame what they have done with that country.

That is why you don't know Brazil... There is nothing worse than this %$#%$#%#$...
