Venezuela to Leverage Crypto with New Platform

Echoing this view; Venezuela’s National Crypto Superintendent Joselit Ramirez urged that crypto is the “most secure way to send a remittance into the country.
Also, Ramirez elaborated the nuisance of the traditional financial system. He says that the cryptocurrencies open new ways to the economic world as the traditional financial system is no longer enough. He said in his Venezuela Crypto Program which is broadcasted on the National Radio of Venezuela;
“The world is evolving, there is a new economic revolution that is coming to continue advancing in the country and contribute to the world economy,”
