I’m not bullish on Bitcoin. I’m bearish on USD. I’m not buying Bitcoin. I’m selling USD. Bitcoin is how I plan to protect myself from inflation, economic uncertainty, and corruption within the financial system.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

(Venezuela) Last week volume traded in Localbitcoin was 1,309 BTC (ATH is 1,974) . One BTC is around 9,100,000 BsS (ATH). Monthly minimum is 4,500 Bs or 1.8 USD. Two weeks ago BTC price was 3,300,000 Bs.S and minimum wage was 4.6 USD. 2018 inflation was 1,700,000%

Hi guys, Venezuelan living here. Things are really hard here, even if you have some BTC or USD prices are increasing. Basically I have to support (or at least try) my whole family.

One monthly minimum wage is around 50,000 satoshis. Daily that would be around 1,700 satoshis.

All of this is calculated using street exchange rate, but even if you use the "official" exchange rate the situation is almost the same, monthly minimum wage would be 5,22 USD PER MONTH.

2018 inflation rate was around 1,700,000% https://www.brecorder.com/2019/01/10/464580/venezuelas-annual-inflation-surges-to-1-7-million-percent/

Last week 1,190 BTC (all time high) were traded using localbitcoins in Venezuela. One BTC is around 1,900,000 BsS (all time high too). Montly minimum was increased from around 5 USD (1800 BsS.) to 12 USD (4500 BsS.). Inflation in the last three months was 400,000%.

Hi guys, monthly update. I'm Venezuelan living here, each day needing more money to survive. It's incredible how inflation is reaching even "hard" currency like USD or EUROS.

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.

You can check the 24h volume here http://dolarbeta.com/ and the last week volumen using Coindance

[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.
