Exchange rate from Argentine peso to bitcoin, and then bitcoin to US dollar. Is it worth it?

Hi I'm a English teacher from the US living in Argentina. I don't have a local ID yet, so I can't sign up for a bank account or use the paypal equivalent here called Mercado Pago (Paypal only works in argentina for international transfers, not within the country like in the US). I only do online classes and some students are outside of my city. My question is: if working as a tutor here, is it worth to have my students pay me in bitcoin (which I'm assuming they would have to buy if they don't have already), and then use that to transfer to dollars in my US bank account. Is this worth it or am I losing value in the process? Edit: Transferwise doesn't work sending money between people in Argentina I can send money from a US bank account to someone in Argentina, but not the other way around. If you don't know the answer to the question I'm asking, please don't respond.
