    I will be back in Brasil for a few weeks and want to go through the process of converting bitcoin to Reais. In the previous forum I recall some members going through the process. Picolino in particular. If anyone with experience in this, is reading this new forum, will you share information on the process?

    I am currently using Localbitcoins.xxx…[Read more]

  • Since this thread was started just over a year ago I wanted to refresh my memory on what some of the thoughts/hopes were for the future exchange rates. On the USD side, rather than going up to the 2+:1 ratio it’s still floating close to the 52 week low at 1.6..:1. Here hoping for a better exchange rate at some point this year.

So I am trying to figure out how I…[Read more]

  • I have been anxiously watching the currency market for sometime now as well. It seems like every June when I go to Brasil, I find my $ at a low. I am not sure if it is just dumb luck or there is something about that time of the year. With the news today of possible new debts troubles in Europe, I thought the US $ would be up against the Real…($…[Read more]
