Venezuela’s Socialist Regime Is Mining Bitcoin In a Bunker to Generate Cash
The socialist regime once cracked down on bitcoin miners. Now it’s mining the digital asset itself.
At a military base outside Caracas, Venezuela, state video footage shows officers in green fatigues cut a blue ribbon donned with a cluster of glossy balloons. Then, the men pry open the doors of a narrow, dimly-lit bunker.
But the balloons weren’t inaugurating a new weapons factory or training facility. They marked the opening of a new bitcoin mining farm.
Venezuela’s President Nicolás Maduro needs cash to sustain his grip on power after muddling through one of the worst economic implosions seen in recent modern history in the Western Hemisphere. It appears that Maduro’s last ditch effort to buoy Venezuela’s shriveling economy is to dig deep for this digital asset and sell it for hard cash.
