436 BTC were traded in Venezuela using LocalBitcoin (down from 518) last week, buying BTC with FIAT and selling BTC for FIAT (Bolivares, Venezuelan "official" currency). These 436 BTC were 1,044,737,504,000 Bs. (Bolivares). One BTC is around 3,000,000,000 Bs. Monthly minimum wage is less than 4 USD
Steady around 500 BTC weekly for 2,000 BTC monthly (UsefulTulips gives a monthly amount but in USD, around 20millions)
This is only measured using LocalBitcoin, there are other exchanges like AIRTM, Uphold, Binance and so on, but no open data as far as I know. Most of the Localbitcoin trades are in Bolivares (BTC to BS and BS to BTC).

I recommend reading this website, it is one of the best english websites for Venezuela news (they sometimes touch the crypto and economic situation).
Last week by a serious NGO released a survey (it is called Encovi) they concluded the average income of the Venezuela is 0.72 USD daily.
