Nicholas Maduro: presale El Petro raised $ 5 billion


President of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro claims that his country collected $ 5 billion from 186 customers during the presale of the national cryptocurrency El Petro. He stated this at a meeting of the United Socialist Party, TeleSUR reported.

The head of state stressed that the funds raised in the pre-sale will be used to “ensure everything that our country needs.” The government treats presale as part of a “large-scale economic decision”.

Venezuela’s cryptocurrency superintendent Carlos Vargas said that 83,000 buyers from 127 countries expressed a desire to participate in the pre-sale. This was reported earlier by the president himself.

Recall, the authorities say that on the first day of pre-sale, $ 735 million was raised, but independent confirmation of this information did not appear.
