Hello, Venezuelan living in Venezuela.
Just posting the updated number for this week.
See my older posts to see the full context, any question AMA.
I just want to explain something I saw in older posts, some people say that the exchange rate is around 80,000 Bs. per USD. That is the fixed rate SET by the government, no one sells at that rate, only the government does and it's limited, they sell only around 1millon USD each two weeks which of course is NOT enough to supply the country demand.
So there is a black market / street market that works with supply and demand. Anyway, if we use the exchange rate set by the government minimum wage would be around 32 USD per month (2,550,000 / 80,000)
One kilo of meat is around 5,000,000 Bs. so using street rate that is around 2 USD using government fixed rate that is 62.5 USD, which one makes more sense?
Hi guys, I'm living here surviving and documenting everything (you can check my older posts).
LocalBitcoin traded 474 Bitcoin last week (which is 4,913,249,752,178 Bolivares)
Government wanted to shave off 3 zeroes this weekend but none was prepared as it was a rushed decision it was delayed two months. So we expect ridiculous prices with a lot of zeros next weeks.
Situation worsened because the goverment started an operation called "Manos de Papel" hunting people who were trading a lot of bolivares (which the suppose come from selling USD and cryptos not using their controlled exchange rate).
Also, they took control of the biggest private bank of the country, called Banesco.
In fact, before that Localbitcoin traded the all time record of 957 BTC traded in one week.
The price of the meat was 800,000 per kg 4 weeks ago and now it's 4,500,000 kg.
It's crazy living here (and sad….)

Can someone explain this in layman’s terms?
