Last week has been somewhat of a positive period for the Bitcoin price and the rest of the crypto community as the April 2 price surge is still in play (despite slight declines along the way). Bitcoin always has the tendency to affect the position of altcoins and how they affect the digital currency economy in certain states. It appears one of such states that has benefited from the recent crypto bull run is Venezuela a country that has been plagued with economic hardship, bad governance and corruption.
According to the report as the Bitcoin price surged to just over $5,000 last week, many markets around the globe started to feel positive about the leading asset class once more. The situation wasn’t different in Venezuela. Per the report, Bitcoin trading in the South American country reached new highs last week.
