Venezuela’s Simón Bolívar International Airport to accept Bitcoin and other cryptos as payment for tickets

Once the airport’s crypto payment system is operational, it will support major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Dash, and the Petro, Venezuela’s oil-pegged crypto.

Venezuela is known for having one of the highest rates of crypto adoption in the world. With the rise in usage of digital currencies, a major international airport in the country is now planning to allow passengers to pay for tickets and other services with Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies.

The Simón Bolívar International Airport is now preparing to comply with industry standards as pushes ahead with its plan of allowing passengers to pay in crypto, according to Cointelegraph. Simón Bolívar, which is also known as Maiquetia, is one of Venezuela’s major international airports and is located in the country’s capital Caracas.

Once the airport’s crypto payment system is operational, it will support major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Dash, and the Petro, Venezuela’s oil-pegged crypto, according to Maiquetia airport director Freddy Borges. There are also plans to introduce new payment options in cooperation with the National Superintendence of Crypto Assets and Related Activities (SUNACRIP).

Borges said that the introduction of the crypto payment option would benefit digital currency-owning tourists such as those from Russia. The new payment system will also mark Maiquetia airport’s commitment to support crypto adoption and adhere to international standards.

“We must advance in these new economic and technological systems to be accessible,” the executive said.

Airlines and airports around the world have already started experimenting with crypto payment options as well as blockchain-based services and functionalities, such as COVID-19 test results to improve their operations and customer service. For instance, Latvia’s airBaltic is already accepting Ethereum (ETH) and Dogecoin (DOGE) for ticket purchases.

In a 2020 study by the blockchain data analytics firm Chainalysis, Venezuela has the third-highest cryptocurrency usage in the world. The country’s high inflation rate has forced its citizens to use crypto as a means of preserving the purchasing power of their wealth.

“Venezuela is suffering through one of the worst economic crises in modern history, with its national currency, the bolivar, becoming practically worthless,” Chainalysis noted. “Under these circumstances, cryptocurrency has taken on an important role in Venezuela’s economy … As the Venezuelan bolivar has lost value in the midst of hyperinflation, Venezuela has become one of the most active cryptocurrency trading countries on earth.”

HAVE YOU BEEN SCAMMED OF YOUR COINS AND WANTS TO GET IT RECOVERED BACK???

I invested a total of$95,000.00USD worth of Bitcoin with an online company who does trading and was guaranteed a payout of 25% a week. They ended up shutting down their company website but their website was still running. So I could still see my dashboard at that time and instead of paying weekly they ended up compounding my money. It ended up compounding to$179, 000USD so I requested for a withdrawal which was declined before they shutdown their website, I complained to my colleague at work who directed me about this recovery expert, Mr. Morris Ray, that helped him, I contacted him immediately, what surprised me most, was that I recovered my money that same week. You can contact him on his email at MorrisGray830 @ Gmail . com and on WhatsApp: + 1 (607) 698-0239 and he will assist you on the steps to recover your invested funds.
Just trying to help those who where scammed just the way I was too.

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: [email protected]

Hello guys, I just want to share my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved. If you need to hire a credible hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.

HOW I RECOVERED MY LOST COINS. I’m sure not everyone out there have learned about Michael Murphy Hacks. I'm so glad I met this amazing RECOVERY SPECIALIST after doing my research online. A scammer on discord contacted me and tried to lure me into a binary options investment scheme which I was reluctant to join, this guy later found his way to my email address after exchanging contact and stole all of my coins worth about $40k and I was absolutely devastated, because I felt I was careful enough, but you can never be too careful with these rippers. I sprung into action, I did some personal research and I read great testimonies about an excellent and very prompt recovery agent known as Michael Murphy - contact address [[email protected] repairman. com/Whatsapp: +1 (925) 238 2217]. I provided Michael with basic information and requirements after I reached out to him, he swung into action and retrieved all I lost funds within a week of investigative and hacking services . I am so excited for this great favor and I promised to tell the whole world about this great guy “Michael”. Be sure to contact Michael via the above contact info if you are seeking to get back any digital currency lost to crypto scammers

Blank ATM Card is Available

A lot of us are still unaware of the recent development of the Blank ATM card. Over 2 years ago the Official Hacking Company developed a card called the Blank ATM card. An ATM card that can change your financial life within a few days. With the Blank ATM card, you can withdraw $5000 daily from any ATM all over the world depending on how fast and smart you are. And there is no risk of getting caught by any form of security, if you follow their instructions properly.

We plead with you to ignore any other hacker you find on this Blog and contact only Official Hacking Company to get a real working Blank ATM card via Email [email protected]
