Venezuela Launches the ‘Petro’: Oil & Gold Backed Cryptocurrency to Fight US Financial Blockade



Trending Now


Caracas, Venezuela – With Bitcoin soaring to new record high daily, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced Sunday that in an effort to bypass U.S.-led financial sanctions Venezuela would launch a digital cryptocurrency backed by oil.

“Venezuela is announcing the creation of its own cryptocurrency. It will be called The Petro. It will allow us to innovate towards new forms of international finance for the economic and social development of the country,” Maduro said Sunday in a statement on state broadcaster VTV, as cited by El Periodico.

Although few details were released about the planned cryptocurrency, Maduro noted that the Petro will be backed by oil, gas, gold and diamond reserves, according to Reuters.

Venezuela boasts the largest proven reserves of crude oil in the world but has struggled against the plunge in oil prices which began in 2014.


Amid ongoing economic sanctions, spearheaded by the United States, Venezuela’s national currency, the Bolivar, has lost approximately 57 percent of its value in the last four weeks alone, according to Reuters.

“The 21st century has arrived!” said Maduro, noting that the move would allow Venezuela to “advance in issues of monetary sovereignty, to make financial transactions and overcome the financial blockade.”

This is simply the latest move by Venezuela to undermine the hegemonic control of the global financial system maintained by the United States, which is underpinned by use of the petrodollar as the world reserve currency.

In September, the Wall Street Journal reported that Venezuelan President Maduro followed through on his threat to stop accepting US Dollars as payment for crude oil exports in the wake of sanctions by the Trump administration.

President Nicolas Maduro said that if the Trump administration went forward with the sanctions, Venezuela would “free” itself from the US Dollar.

According to a report by Reuters:

“Venezuela is going to implement a new system of international payments and will create a basket of currencies to free us from the dollar,” Maduro said in a multi-hour address to a new legislative “superbody.”

Maduro noted that his country would look to the BRICS countries, and begin using the Chinese yuan and Russian ruble instead — along with other currencies — to bypass the US Dollar stranglehold.

“If they pursue us with the dollar, we’ll use the Russian ruble, the yuan, yen, the Indian rupee, the euro,” Maduro said.

The Wall Street Journal reports that as a means of circumventing U.S. sanctions — Washington’s preferred weapon of choice to force compliance — Venezuela has told oil traders that it will no longer send or receive payments in dollars, according to people familiar with the new policy.

Rather than work diplomatically with other nations, the United States often uses financial sanctions to force compliance with preferred policy — a phenomenon known as dollar hegemony.

Due to the dollar being accepted as the world’s reserve currency, almost all financial transactions are denominated in dollars.

This phenomenon gives the US a powerful weapon to wield against states that refuse to follow US directives, and which underpins the unipolar model of global domination exercised by the US.

“We are facing a financial war against the country which we have denounced and the opposition has denied. There are business people who are unaffected by Donald Trump’s blockade. With this, we will join the 21st century,” Maduro added, as cited by Panorama.

Maduro approved the creation of a BlockchainBase observatory to oversee the development and implementation of the new cryptocurrency, reports La Patilla.

Maduro’s movement away from the U.S. dollar, and towards cryptocurrency, comes amid the spectacular rise of bitcoin, now valued at over $11,000 USD per BTC, which has been fueled by signs that the digital currency is slowly gaining mainstream acceptance in the investment world.

This will never happen. Because:

1. Crypto currency and Digital currency requires clean credentials by the issuer and administrator. The Venezuelan government are well known corrupted bunch and since this type of currency is highly unregulated, the crooks in Venezuela will be stealing from the participants. 

2. No one in the world will accept Venezuela's value on the "Petro"... Venezuela couldn't manage Bolivares Fuertes, what makes us believe they can manage the "Petro"?

3. Russia is having a hard time working the bugs out of their digital currency. And the Russians have their shit together. Nicolas Maduro is surrounded by incompetent people.
