Then I'll spell it out: It won't make much difference.
What is changing is that the trade used to require
the dollar and now it's optional. There are advantages to small businesses in that they don't have to pay currency conversion fees but the respective currencies aren't as stable as the dollar (even with the dollar's recent instability the Real as an example has fared far worse) and this represents risk that larger companies are likely to avoid in the mean time.
The benefits are slight and largely political, a very small boost in local trade may come with this but because all it's doing is allowing the businesses the option to trade in local currency instead of being required to use dollars it's not much of a risk to anyone.
If businesses want to continue to use dollars they will continue to do so.
