Such thing is illegal in most today's countries. There is an official currency in every country and exchange offices for currencies other countries use. Officially.

Again I'm bringing up the virtual, uncontrolled and not backed with any government currencies. IMO such stuff should be globally declared as illegal business. I don't want to convert my real money into Bioware Points, Simpoints, Riot Points or the last case of money laundry scam called Season Pass.
