Here's a thread from others in the region:
 - http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64997.0

Now that Bitcoin Nordic accepts payments using CashU, which in turn accepts UKash vouchers for adding funds, bitcoins can now be purchased in quite a few more countries, including Argentina:

The full list of Latin American countries where UKash may be purchased:

 - Argentina
 - Mexico
 - Bolivia
 - Brazil
 - Colombia
 - Equador
 - Uraguay

This is the buying chain.

maguiexpress > ukash > kashu > bitcoinnordic

I'm afraid I'm gonna lose like 20% in commisions. Not really a good deal I would say, but since it is the only choice I have...

I have tried to buy UKASH coupons but maguiexpress doesn't sell them in my province, only BA.

What are my other choices? I live in Cordoba city (2nd in the country).

Thanks!

Hola loco, mirá yo soy de Resistencia (Chaco). Si te interesa te puedo vender algunos bitcoins por transferencia bancaria, al precio de MtGox + 15% si me pagas en Pesos Argentinos, o MtGox + 7,5 % si me pagás en dolares. Tengo cuenta en Banco Rio. Si te interesa, avisame. En este momento tengo disponibles 107 BTC, pero para mañana puedo conseguirte otros 100/150 más. Cualquier cosa, estoy a tus ordenes. Saludos, Matias Predilailo.

If you ever make it to Salta or Cafayate, in Salta Province, let me know.  I can hook you up with bitcoins for cash (pesos).  You would simply send me an email with your bitcoin address, go to one of 3 people (currently - working on adding more) at their businesses in those places, hand them pesos, they will let me know that they have received the cash, and I will send you your bitcoins.  Yes there is an element of trust there, but I run other businesses (http://www.grasshillalpacas.com/alpacaproductsforbitcoinoffer.html and http://www.forstersoilmanagement.com) with integrity and honesty. 

I am looking to streamline the process and allow for cash deposits to be made in more cities throughout Argentina.  Private message me if you want more details.

Idem Cheesy ojalá algún día podamos tener más libertad aún... sobre todo en nuestros lugares, donde si no es siendo una persona medianamente sabionda sobre el tema, o buscando alternativas, no se está enterado de que existen oportunidades...

I'd love to do this. I'd like to have a bank account that people can transfer pesos into and I'd send them bitcoins in exchange.

Is it possible for a foreigner to get hold of an Argentinean bank account?

Im from Australia btw.

It's a long process - it may take months.

Any hints as to where to start?

Also does anyone know if a foreigner can do business as a sole proprietor? For example can a foreigner offer online services and pay Argentinean taxes but be based overseas?

There are no bitcoiners in my city. I can't seem to use credit cards nor paypal either in any site. International bank wire transfer is a mess with a lot of papers required to do the transaction.

Thanks in advance!

Try to check https://localbitcoins.com/ for people who sell bitcoins near your location.

 - http://www.BitcoinNordic.com


I am a newbie here and hope that someone here can help me a bit Wink

So how does this whole thing then work? I simply go to a MORE or maguiexpress store and buy USD nominated vouchers with my ARS!? Which exchange rate do they use for that conversion? Will they use the blue market rate to convert ARS into USD or the "normal" one?

After I got then this code then, I simply load the funds onto my UKASH account (which shows then the amount in USD) and from there I transfer it to CashU and then to BitCoin, right? How much in commission will this then actually cost?

Is this the only way to transfer ARS into USD or EUR? I wouldn't mind skipping one of those money services to avoid commission payments and directly transfer to a bank account in the USA or Europe - is that also possible?

Advices are highly welcome! Thank you very much in advance!!!

A Bank or any other financial service provider will never offer you the blue market rate (I think they are even forbidden to do better deals then the official one, not sure though).
The closest to the blue market rate you can get is to find some one on eudemocracia.com or localbitcoins.com to trade with you. I just did and they offered me almost the blue market rate (-1 or 2%).
Thats where you can obtain the rates from: http://www.ambito.com/economia/mercados/monedas/dolar/

So how does uKash in Argentina actually works then? Is it like this, that I pay with ARS and get a coupon denominated in USD or EUR?
Do they ask for a commission/fees for this conversation?
