A senior politician from the ruling party of Venezuela condemned the sanctions imposed by the US government against the recently released national cryptocurrency, Petro.
The President of the United States Donald trump signed on Monday an order prohibiting American citizens and residents to buy or make transactions in a digital currency issued by Venezuela.
Diosdado Cabello, Vice-President of the United socialist party of Venezuela, denounced the new sanctions Twitter:
Imperialism again is wrong, imposing sanctions and a blockade against a brave and worthy Venezuelans! Let’s raise the flags of Bolivar and Chavez, we will win!
At a special press conference, Cabello also said that a President trump and the United States is unable to use diplomatic ways to resolve your conflict with Venezuela and instead chose the “warlike” approach.
Recall that the public sale of tokens must begin today (according to Wallpaper). During closed pre-sale, which lasted from 20 February to 19 March, managed to raise about $ 5 billion. In any case, so says the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, although no evidence of this has not yet been submitted.
Against cryptocurrency Petro is not only the US but also the Venezuelan opposition Congress, which has recognized this fraudulent project.
