  • Crypto Payment Platform Supported by the Central Bank of Venezuela

    The crypto payment system supported by Venezuelan biometric authentication is still down, more than two months after being offline, causing chaos for traders across the country.The Biopago Platform is the brainchild of the Central Bank of Venezuela and allows citizens to make payments in petro (PTR), an oil-supported token, issued by the state, using fingerprint sensor technology.The government made huge fanfare about the network, and the Point of Sale (PoS) terminal, many of which were distributed free to traders in December last year.
