Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says on national television that his government is ready pay a lump sum of 0.5 Petro (approximately $ 30) to all retirees, public sector employees, and military personnel.
In order to receive a digital “bonus” from the president next week, a resident of Venezuela must download and register in the Petro App.
The Petro App is the official national Petro wallet that allows Venezuelans to buy and exchange Petro for BTC, ETH and LTC.
Recall that the president promised to pay crypto-Christmas bonuses back in November.
Maduro has already attempted last yearhold Airdrop Petro. At that time, the government provided tokens through a platform designed to manage social benefits for Venezuelans: the Patria system. With this system Venezuelans can exchange received Petro for other cryptocurrencies or for fiat.</p>
