Bitcoin [BTC] trading volume increases exponentially in Columbia, Venezuela and Peru


Venezuela has shown a massive increase in Bitcoin adoption over the last year when compared to the data from the past. The data also shows that the trading volume for BTC has also increased drastically.

Venezuela, Argentina, Columbia, and Peru are some countries that are affected a lot by inflation and government policies that have caused widespread panic and rejection of the government currencies. People of these countries tried to find respite in US dollar but since its inception, Bitcoin has gained more attraction and affection by developing countries.

As per the data obtained from Coin Dance, the weekly local Bitcoin volume for Columbia has increased more than twice in the past four months.
