Yesterday at the International Summit of the Solar Alliance, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Venezuela spoke about plans to introduce Petro — own state cryptocurrency into the solar energy market. The minister said that the state will finance solar energy projects using cryptocurrency. Despite the fact that Venezuela is an oil-producing country, renewable energy is an opportunity to raise the economy and move to the next level of modern development.
Representatives of India and Venezuela talked about plans for the introduction and strengthening of the clean and sustainable energy industry, which guarantees energy supply in future, without affecting the climatic consequences for the planet.
Last month, Venezuela held a public offering of its own cryptocurrency called Petro. The main goal of its creation is a way out of the current difficult economic situation due to US sanctions. President Maduro explained that country is entering a new stage of technological development.
Within hours of offering, Petro has raised more than $700 million of investment. In total, the government plans to release over 100,000,000 tokens. Leaders also said that they plan to introduce Petro into the internal economy as a way of paying taxes or municipal services since the cryptocurrency is backed by real oil assets of the state.
President Nicolas Maduro said that the introduction of cryptocurrency will allow Venezuela to realize Hugo Chávez dream and to stop US dollar and Wall Street dominance over the world economy.
