Venezuela Starts Selling Petro

Venezuela Begins Public Sale of National Cryptocurrency PetroOn Monday, the Venezuelan government announced that the public can now purchase the country’s national cryptocurrency directly from the Superintendency of Cryptoassets and Related Activities (Sunacrip). Sunacrip is in charge of regulating all crypto-related activities in Venezuela.

The petro was originally backed by only oil. However, its latest whitepaper shows that the digital currency is now also backed by gold, iron, and diamond. The Venezuelan government-backed newspaper Correo del Orinoco wrote:

This Monday the sale of el petro cryptocurrency is successfully launched for all Venezuelans and those who want to make financial transactions digitally through this mechanism.

Venezuela’s vice president of the economy, Tareck El Aissami, explained that the petro can currently be acquired with a number of foreign currencies and cryptocurrencies. Accepted fiat currencies include the dollar, yuan, and the euro, he elaborated, adding that accepted cryptocurrencies include BTC, ETH, and XEM.

Buyers can visit the Sunacrip headquarters to purchase the petro with cash. Purchasing with cryptocurrencies can also be done on the petro’s official website, El Aissami noted.

A number of Venezuelan government officials turned up to purchase the petro on Monday. Each was issued a petro certificate at the time of purchase. “Superintendent Joselit Ramírez described the day as a success,” El Aissami tweeted. Ramírez replaced Carlos Vargas as Venezuela’s Superintendent of Cryptoassets in June.

Google Suspends Petro Wallet App

At the time of this writing, the links to download petro wallets for Windows and Linux on the official petro website lead to pages that are “not found” on the website’s server. Only user and install guides are available.

Previously, there was also a petro wallet app on the Google Play store which showed over 5,000 installs and 275 reviews. However, El Aissami explained that “on Oct. 15, Google suspended the wallet,” claiming that the internet giant is checking the wallet’s crypto functionality before reactivating it, Que Pasa publication reported. At the time of this writing, the petro wallet app is no longer listed on the Google Play store.

Additionally, the Venezuelan government’s own block explorer for the petro currently shows a total of 304 blocks despite the whitepaper describing a blocktime of one block per minute.

More Petro Options Coming Nov. 5

The public sale of the petro was scheduled for Nov. 5. However, Ramirez explained that the launch was moved forward due to “the fluidity with which events developed and the support of President Nicolás Maduro,” El Universal quoted him.

On Thursday, El Aissami unveiled two more petro options which will be enabled on the Sunacrip website on Nov. 5: Petro Pago (pay) and Petro Ahorro (savings). Noting that he has been meeting with representatives of savings banks to discuss starting petro savings plans, he clarified:

We are in the purchasing stage [of the petro]. Next week will be the savings stage.
