Bitcoins in Argentina – Where to find more information!

First of all thank you very much to everybody who has provided input, comments and feedback during the last couple of days. It has been fantastic – and we do read and notice everything that is sent to us.

However after an article in La Nacion we have received overwhelming amount of questions in relation to what is Bitcoin and how to buy Bitcoins in Argentina. We cannot answer all of these questions ourselves, but below we have tried to list some of the various resources where you can find more information and get involved. Luckily there is strong and living Bitcoin community who will support in this.

Como llegar Bitcoins en Argentina (caro pero constante):

1. Crear una cuenta www.cashu.com

2. Comprar un vale Ukash en Argentina: www.ukash.com/en-AR/where-to-get/

3. Usa el cupón Ukash para recargar su cuenta www.cashu.com.

4. Compra Bitcoins en www.bitcoinnordic.com con tu cuenta cashu.com. Conversión UKash a los costos Cashu cerca de 9%, entonces la compra de Bitcoin Nordic es otro 15%. Así que es caro, pero no hay límite a la cantidad de bitcoins que puede obtener.


There is also a new LATAM based Bitcoin Exchange which will probably soon launch. Once live we will update the post. Feel free add additional resources in the comments section below.

Happy bitcoining!
