well tbh you're right here. crypto currencies swing far more in value on a
daily/weekly basis than the usd or euro do in a whole year.

that's kind of ha;f the fun of them... :)

i don't think we're going to want to pay fees for the small amounts we keep.

just fyi,.. the better your relationship with the bank, the cheapr and better
it is. i bank with hsbc and i can transfer money world-wide to/from my accounts
in various countries for free. i don't even have to change the currency. that's
a separate step.. no limit on transfer sizes either. i also can keep one of
about 20 or 30 currencies and exchange at will without transferring. but e.fr
doesn't have this and i can't see any way for that to happen, so crypto
currencies are not a bad way to break down these barriers and move money around
the world, despite the volatility.
