Hello,

I just heard of bitcoin.

Paypal is not fully supported in Cambodia. Cambodian can accept Paypal but not witdraw from it to their bank account.

So is it possible to send them some paypal amount. Then they would convert to cash using bitcoin.

But how would this cash be transfered to their account: through Wiretranfer ? Where, How ?

Thanks.

You can gladly send them bitcoins, the problem is getting them into the local currency.  Unless there is a bitcoin exchanger who will exchange for KHR they would be out of luck.  I haven't seen one, but maybe one will turn up eventually.

There is a fixed-rate exchage service for Bitcoin in Cambodia.
Here is the URL: http://bitcoincambodia.com/

It is possible to exchange BTC for USD, or back. People why live in Cambodia not need a bank account or something like that. The money will be transferred via WING, which is available in almost each city. The receiver in Cambodia need only a phone number.

Bitcoin Cambodia Current Buy Price: $405
Coin Cadence Bitcoin Exchange Price Index Buy Price: $436.47
Bitcoin Cambodia Fee = 7.77% (calculated, not disclosed on site)

That is pretty high for BTC/USD transaction!

If you send money with Western Union, you will be paying 10-12% as fees. And you need to manually travel to the nearest WU office, if you want to receive the money in Cambodia. This is far more cheaper and convenient.

bitcoincambodia.com is cheaper when you compare it with Western Union. And Western Union is only in big cities available, but WING is everywhere. And to pickup money with WU you need a ID-card. But many people in Cambodia have no ID card.

I have sent money to and from Argentina (another country where it is very hard to get money in or out) several time using Bitcoin. I mostly contact people on Localbitcoins and ask them to meet with the recipient of the funds, but now some people in Buenos Aires are even offering free delivery of the cash for higher amounts (so they won't even have to walk around with lots of money in their pockets).

Most definitely. You can use Bitcoin to send money even to the moon! (pun)

Bitcoin is gonna do for money what Email did to regular mail. Any place on earth where there's internet, you can send mail - and now with Bitcoin, also money. Easy as that.

Yep. I think international currency transfers are the first step toward massive adoption. Once people see how easy and low cost it is they will bypass the conventional system in favor of efficiency and lower cost.

The recipient could even receive the bitcoin with a dumb mobile phone:
