Crypto Industry News:
The Venezuelan central bank is investigating the storage options for Bitcoins and Ethereum, according to anonymous sources that supposedly have direct insight into this matter.
According to financial media articles, the central bank of Venezuela is taking a closer look at whether it has the ability to store cryptocurrencies. The state-owned oil and gas company Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PSDV) asked the central bank to investigate the case after the oil producer encountered difficulties in receiving payments from international clients due to US sanctions against the current Venezuelan regime of President Venezuela Nicolas Maduro.
Anonymous sources have stated that PSDV wants to transfer Bitcoin and Ethereum to the Venezuelan central bank and then instruct the central institution to pay cryptocurrency suppliers.
In the hope of overcoming isolation from the global financial system, the Venezuelan central bank is reportedly analyzing proposals in which cryptocurrencies will be included in the country’s international reserves, which are currently reaching the lowest level in 30 years of $ 7.9 billion.
