Cryptocurrencies in Venezuelan Politics
As previously reported by Cointelegraph en Español, Juan Guaidó’s connection to cryptocurrencies is not strange, but so far his connection has been very different from what he is currently being accused of.
Right away, Guaidó implemented the USDC stablecoin with the help of Circle and the AirTM exchange to send funds and humanitarian aid from the United States to various social groups in Venezuela.
On the other hand, Juan Guaidó himself has also made allegations of terrorist financing, in this case against Nicols Maduro. Last April, the opposition leader recognized by the United States as President in Charge of Venezuela announced on a Colombian radio that Maduro would use cryptocurrencies to fund the terrorist group of the Revolutionary Armed Front of Colombia (FARC).
