Crypto Industry News:
Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro announced that the Christmas bonus for pensioners from the country will be paid to them in the national Petro cryptocurrency. The local press daily Venepress wrote on Twitter about Maduro’s comments on November 17.
This is not the first time Venezuela is pushing Petro into the portfolio of retirees. In December last year, the country automatically converted pensioners’ bonuses for this year into Petro.
The cryptographic resource in question was first introduced for pre-sale in February last year and raised concerns among foreign observers from the very beginning. At the end of August last year, Petro was sharply condemned as an opaque “feat” supported by a centralized and indebted unit.
Still, the national cryptocurrency and cryptocurrencies as a whole are increasingly supported by the government.
Member of the National Assembly of Venezuela, Francisco Torrealba, on November 13 said he believes that all currencies will be replaced by cryptocurrencies. Speaking of Venezuela, Torrealba claimed that the country is facing great changes, and Maduro is making a “great contribution” to the country by creating Petro.
