Venezuelan update: One BTC is around 1,524,000 BsS. (Bolivares, more than 100% increase in around 1 month), monthly minimum wage is around 8 USD -0.0013 BTC- and inflation keeps going on (even in USD). 915 BTC were traded last week using Localbitcoin data.

Hello,

You can check the "Coffee with milk index made by Bloomberg" https://www.bloomberg.com/features/2016-venezuela-cafe-con-leche-index/

Government "set" the prices of some goods and what happens is that they set the price is under the production cost. But now people just don't care, price is set at 90 BsS. per kilo (which is around 45 usd cents) none wants to sell at that price, people is selling it at around 700 Bs. (3 USD) and nothing happens.

Government ordered all the banks to show your balance in petro cryptocurrency as well (Government cryptocurrency), if you have 3600 BsS. (15 USD) in your account it will show 1 Petro. Even BBVA and Citibank had to do this.

[Voorhees] Bitcoin’s inflation schedule is set for the next 100 years: transparent, unwavering, and known to all parties. US Dollar’s inflation schedule is unknown even 1 year out: opaque and manipulated quarterly. One model mathematical & civilized; the other political & antiquated.

It would be impossible for every Fidelity brokerage customer to own even one Bitcoin. This is why Bitcoins are worth thousands of dollars, while a dollar is only worth one dollar (and only until next year when when it’s worth 97 cents). – Erik Voorhees

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Why are there so few block explorers supporting segwit addresses? Even blockchain.com still doesn’t.

For anyone who is looking for one as well: btc.com works but it's one of very few.

If you google "Bitcoin Block Explorer" the first 5 results are explorers that don't support segwit addresses. Is that so difficult to implement?

Venezuelan update: One BTC is around 700,000 BsS. (Bolivares), monthly minimum wage is around 19 USD -0.003 BTC- and inflation keeps going on (even in USD). 72 BTC were traded in the last 24h using Localbitcoin.

Government "set" the prices of some goods and what happens is that they set the price is under the production cost.

One example is meat, there is not meat anywhere, price is set at 90 BsS. per kilo (which is around 90 usd cents) none wants to sell at that price.

Another problem (which I "think" could help to "fix" economy) is that some prices (in USD) are the same of more expensive than the international price. For example one soda can (Coke) is around 1 USD. One Mcflurry ice cream is 4-5 USD and so on. (I use these examples, so you can compare easily). But remember minimum wage is 19 USD per MONTH. So it's really had for people to live here, even if you have family abroad and they used to send 50$ per month and people used that to live here now more USD are needed….
