In Venezuela, the first hotel in the country was opened with payment for accommodation in the cryptocurrency. The hotel is located in the capital city of the country. The innovative hotel “Humboldt” was created on the basis of a hotel built in the 50s of the last century. The opening ceremony was personally attended by President Nicolas Maduro.
The President noted that for accommodation services in the hotel will have to pay in units of the national cryptocurrency – El petro. Maduro also expressed the hope that tourism in the future will become one of the profitable sectors of Venezuela’s economy.
It should be noted that the first issue of the national cryptocurrency was held in January 2018. According to the head of the country, virtual money will help the country get out of the deep economic crisis that has engulfed Venezuela in recent years. Source: mir24.tv
