Venezuela’s opposition-run parliament on Tuesday prohibited “petro” digital currency promoted by communist President Nicolas Maduro, calling it a push to illicitly mortgage nation’s oil reserves.

In the middle of February, crumbling communist nation Venezuela propelled “Petro” — the world’s first state-issued cryptographic money — purportedly upheld by the nation’s oil holds. President Maduro’s decision to make his own particular cryptocurrency may appear to be interesting, given that Venezuela itself is in the throes of an extraordinary financial crisis. Malnourishment, destitution, and joblessness are soaring while the legislature essentially prints increasingly bolivar — making hyperinflation and rendering the nation’s fiat money useless.

Monetizing oil reserves to give income to the Venezuelan state was not really unrealistic, but rather it should have been founded on an exceptionally solid and trustworthy institutional structure for potential investors. How were those 5 billion barrels to be changed over into a fungible decent? Who might have the duty regarding extricating and showcasing them? What are the potential creation costs per barrel, versus what costs can sensibly be normal in the buyer market? These are inquiries for which there are no responses to date.

On Tuesday, the National Assembly (AN) declared null the issue of the Petro (PTR) and all the obligations emanating from its circulation, considering it a violation of the Magna Carta and the laws.

As stated by an official press announcement-

After the debate on the implementation of the PTR by the president of the Permanent Finance Committee, deputy Rafael Guzmán (Unity / Miranda), the AN in full decided to approve an agreement in rejection of the financial mechanism and alert for potential investors and actors of the cryptocurrency market, considering the issuance unconstitutional and any other obligation on the part of the Venezuelan State that has as guarantees oil reserves or any other mineral.

In view of these and other arguments, the AN voted to approve the rejection agreement in which, among other points, it is considered that the reserves are of the Republic, that the issuance of the PTR violates the rules for issuing coins and that the Executive intends to escape of the Legislative controls.
