Hi guys, as you might know I'm a Venezuelan "living" here. September keeps the trend around 500 BTC traded weekly. Usefultulips reports 4,000,000 USD in September so this month could see a increase. The trade is only measured using LocalBitcoin, there are other exchanges like AIRTM (this one banned by the Goverment), 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). Here are more stats [https://www.usefultulips.org/combined\_VES\_Page.html](https://www.usefultulips.org/combined_VES_Page.html) Monthly minimum wage is 800,000 Bs. one USD is around 370,000 Bs.
