The leu is the currency of Moldova and is subdivided into 100 bani. There are few ATMs in Chisinau but none outside the capital city. You can easily change dollars or Euro (Pounds not so easily). You can also change Romanian Lei and Ukraine Hyenda at a lot of places.
US dollars are accepted without conversion by quite a lot of businesses, even taxis. All along Stephan cel Mare Boulevard (the Main Street of Chisinau) money changers exhibit their rates. Credit card acceptance is few and far between and it is advised to take enough cash for your stay.
