How to exchange steem or hive into Bolivares
I've read a couple of posts from my Venezuelan friends that are scared that they can't exchange steem into local currencies anymore.
Orinoco doesn't let you deposit steem anymore...
It seems that Orinoco doesn't let people deposit steem anymore. The only currencies that can be deposited are BTC, EOS or Nectar. This is a huge problem for Venezuelans because Steem was one of their main income source so far. I've tried to come up with an indirect solution to help them. A solution is not easy for people from normal countries and even much more difficult for Venezuelans who often are excluded from big exchanges.
A solution to get coins to orinoco
I would suggest an indirect way to get your coins over to Orinoco. The problem is that indirect ways make you loose a lot of money because of fees and transaction costs. So this is by far not the best solution but I believe it can work for emergencies:
Send steem or hive to Ionomy. I believe that this is at the moment the only exchange that accepts steem and hive. It is very easy to log in and there is no KYC.
Exchange your steem and hive to BTC and then to DASH. Dash withdrawal from Ionomy cost 0.15 Usd. BTC withdrawals cost 3.10 USD!
Send your DASH to Faucetpay. I know it doesn't seem logical but you can now change DASH back to BTC on faucetpay and withdraw your BTC to Orinoco. Withdrawal fees are only 400 satoshis for normal withdrawals and minimum withdrawal is 1000 satoshis.
This is certainly a very complicated way to do it and I haven't tested it. Please share your experiences if you know a better way to do it.
