No. Due to the cost of low liquidity in Australia, you won't get an equivalent value in USD (not that 30 is). You lose value immediately. That's part of the problem in determining actual value of anything in AUD when on a foreign exchange.

No. It's not. For a start crypto is non-jurisdictional. You can spend it all over the world, unlike AUD and USD.

 

Please though, tell me where this machine is that dispenses $30 USD for $20 AUD. I'd like to be a billionaire before the weekend!
