In Western Sahara, its own peseta gets used alongside Morocco's dirham and Mauritania's ouguiya. No pesos in sight there.

Frankly I'm always weirded out when a former Spanish colony DOESN'T use the peso. Literally means pound. Same as the UK. I almost forgot Las Filipinas.

It actually means "weight" in a generic sense, whereas the pound is a specific unit of mass.

Autocorrect won't turn something spelt right into something spelt wrong. You misspelled them, or never typed them

Once the Jetpunk user base rises to 80% Filipino I think you'll see that number rise.
