We're investigating this issue."

For its part, the Venezuelan government tries to boost its official cryptocurrency Petro (PTR), which has failed to gain investor confidence despite Maduro claiming that the cryptocurrency is backed by oil. This November 6, Maduro announced that the Petro cryptocurrency will be used soon for the purchase and sale of products.
