Venezuela is set to float a digital currency, nicknamed Petro, to shore up the collapsing economy and to tackle inflation which is raging at 4,000%.

Last August it was reported that many people are turning to bitcoin mining to generate an income when work is hard to come by.

"Venezuela will create a cryptocurrency", Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Sunday, according to Reuters.

The leader of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, has announced that the country will launch its own cryptocurrency called the 'Petro' and it'll be backed by the country's natural resource reserves such as oil, gas, and the country's mineral wealth, including its gold.

Both men are also proteges of former oil czar Rafael Ramirez, who headed PDVSA and served as oil minister for a decade until becoming Venezuela's ambassador to the United Nations in 2014.

The introduction of the digital currency would allow the Venezuelan government "to advance in issues of monetary sovereignty, to make financial transactions and overcome the financial blockade", said Maduro, referring to Washington-imposed sanctions.

Venezuela reached easier debt terms from Russia and received a sign of confidence from China after a delay that had threatened to trigger a default. President Maduro thinks he has a solution, though: creating the country's own cryptocurrency.

"Our duty as a people, our moral obligation as a historical force is to defeat them once, twice, three times and all the times necessary so that they never again govern this country", El Aissami said. Many early adopters of the cryptocurrency used the country's subsidized electricity to mine bitcoin with little-to-no overhead, generating hundreds of dollars from the socialist energy grid - as well as the attention of law enforcement.

Jesus Faria, a self-proclaimed Marxist economist and a former trade minister who's now a member of the constituent assembly, recently said about the current foreign-exchange policy that a “truly free exchange market has to be established, where supply and demand meet to fix the price.”.

With the Petro, Maduro claims his regime can bypass the "economic war" being waged by these countries.

What's new, however, is the direct link between the Venezuelan government and a digital currency. And over the past two years - 10,768%. "The petrocurrency is off to a bad start". Mismanagement and sanctions have crippled its infrastructure, its money is increasingly worthless and the public is fuming.

Cryptocurrencies typically are not backed by any government or central banks, nor are they regulated.
