Venezuelans’ interest in buying Bitcoin has risen appreciably over the past 3 months, Criptonoticias news outlet reports Wednesday, June 6, citing statistics in the LocalBitcoins exchange.
Venezuela experienced its first cryptocurrency flourish in early 2017, as soon as a record volume of 805 bitcoins traded in a week was set.
After that, the degree of attention towards crypto at Venezuela dropped, coinciding with a decline in trading volume to as low as 150 bitcoins bought per week.
