7天5亿玻利瓦尔,委内瑞拉比特币交易量创新高

上周,比特币和委内瑞拉玻利瓦尔(VES)交易对的交易量创下了历史新高,首次超过了5亿。

7天,5亿玻利瓦尔

据Coin Dance确认,BTC/VES交易量创造了新高,也就是5.06亿VES,共交易了1143个比特币。委内瑞拉的比特币交易量可以说是在不断刷新记录,上一次的新高还只有1.75亿VES。

就在同一个星期,委内瑞拉对玻利瓦尔进行重新估值,导致该国的主权货币贬值96%。

委内瑞拉的主权玻利瓦尔项目是和其国家加密货币石油币(Petro)绑定的。由于这个项目的推出,该国政府遭到了外界的批评。据悉,无论是石油币还是VES都没有成功赢得民众的信任,后者被称为“建立在骗局之上的骗局”。

委内瑞拉政府认为这种新型货币能够帮助解决恶性通货膨胀问题,实际上却带来了更多困扰,导致普通民众资产的购买力越来越低。

比特币用户前途未卜

随着委内瑞拉经济状况的不断恶化,比特币变得越来越受欢迎了。与此同时,政府的某些决定也将直接影响民众对比特币的使用。

比特币钱包Purse.io的主管Eduardo Gomez是委内瑞拉人,他在推特中提到,身处国外的委内瑞拉民众现在必须告知银行他们离开本国的目的。因为政府强制要求银行用户公布自己的IP地址,这个规定仅针对在国外使用委内瑞拉银行服务的民众。

他说:

很多生活在国外的委内瑞拉人都需要用国内的银行账户才能把钱汇给家人,把美元换成当地货币。比特币用户将受到这个规定的直接影响。很多Localbitcoins(P2P交易平台)的交易者都住在国外。

尽管委内瑞拉是世界上第一个发行数字货币的国家,但他们似乎并不支持比特币。由于国内电费低廉,很多民众都希望通过比特币挖矿谋生,但政府却没收了大量的矿机,甚至还有人因此被捕。

Trading between Bitcoin and the Venezuelan Bolivar (VES) has beaten all records to pass 500 million for the first time last week.

7 DAYS, HALF A BILLION BOLIVARS

Data from Coin Dance, which tracks volumes on P2P platform Localbitcoins, confirms that the seven days ending August 25 saw BTC/VES achieve volumes never seen before.

The results come the same week Venezuela revalued the bolivar to create the new Sovereign Bolivar, lowering the currency’s value by 96 percent in the process.

For the week, Localbitcoins processed 506.3 million VES, a figure which dwarfs the previous all-time high of 175.8 million seen the week before.

In Bitcoin terms, the figure was also the highest ever, at 1143 BTC.

The Venezuelan government has come under extensive criticism for rolling out its Sovereign Bolivar project, which is tied to its national cryptocurrency Petro. As Bitcoinist reported, both Petro and the VES have received broad votes of no confidence, sources describing the latter as a “scam on top of another scam” last week.

Following conversion day August 20, the government in the meantime has even released a dedicated app to help citizens calculate how much money they actually own.

Rampant hyperinflation, which Caracas claims the new currency will help calm, is contributing to the confusion and ever-decreasing purchasing power of ordinary Venezuelans.

GOVERNMENT CLAMPDOWN ‘WILL AFFECT’ BITCOIN USERS

While Bitcoin has been gaining popularity in line with the deteriorating economic situation, the latest decisions by authorities appear to be fuelling interest and uptake.

As Purse.io head of support Eduardo Gomez, who is a Venezuelan national, noted on Twitter August 27, citizens traveling abroad will now have to notify banks of their intention to leave the country. This, according to documents, is a result of the government forcing them to reveal the IP addresses of those who access their banking setup from abroad.

“Many Venezuelans who live outside the country use their national bank accounts to send money to family members and to purchase local currency from traders by selling USD,” Gomez commented.

“Bitcoin users will be directly affected by this. Many (Localbitcoins) traders live outside the country.”
