Venezuela to Use Petro Cryptocurrency for Oil Sales: Maduro

"We will sell Venezuelan oil in exchange for petros. We already sell Venezuela’s iron ore and steel for petros. We have already signed contracts for the sale of oil, steel, iron and aluminum, and we will sell part of the gold for petros," El Nacional newspaper quotes him as saying, Tass reported. According to Maduro, the government is successfully introducing its cryptocurrency into Venezuelans’ daily lives. In December, the country’s authorities transferred benefits in petros timed to the New Year holidays to pensioners and public sector employees. Maduro announced the launch of the national petro cryptocurrency in October 2017. Its sales began on February 20, 2018. Its cost is equal to the price of a barrel of oil produced in the country.
