Thank you very much. Much appreciated.Correct, a lot of cuevas now, in addition to trading USD -> AR$ they will also trade crypto such us USDT or USDC against AR$. So yes, it would be very simple for you to do. Keep in mind though however, that digital currencies incur a commission right now, and it varies on a daily bases.
so say you have 1000 USDT you want to convert to AR$. First they would deduct today's rate of from USDT 2% say, to end up with USD, then they buy those USD at dollar blue (compra). to give you an idea, depending on where you go the USDT rate is anywhere between 2-3%. I hope this helps.
If I understand this correctly, I first pay +/- 2% to convert USD to USDT/USDC; then is a further fee to convert USDT/USDC back to USD (say +/- 2%), and from this USD to get the ARS there is then the blue rate (which is typically a bit lower than the CCL based rate at WU) [let's say this is another 2%].
As I see it: for me it is much efficient to go with the WU (if the above calculation is more or less correct, then this is about 6%; as I pay almost no fees for WU from Europe)
For larger transactions I pay around 4% to get my hand on USD in cash here (payment to a USD account, and collect here USD bills). So also for these kind of transactions there doesn't seem to be an advantage going crypto.
Anyway: I will try to do a crypto transaction in the near future just to get familiar with the technology. (I don't believe in crypto as a long-term asset, but see potential benefits in making transactions more cost efficient)
