    Venezuelan international airport to accept Bitcoin payments

    Simón Bolívar Airport (also known as Maiquetia) is preparing to accept cryptocurrencies, including BTC, DASH and the Venezuelan digital currency Petro, as payment for tickets and other services. According to airport director Freddie Borges, the airport’s administration would introduce new payment options in coordination with Venezuela’s National Superintendence of Crypto Assets and Related Activities.
    The introduction of crypto payments at the Maiquetia airport would mark the company’s commitment to advance towards international standards and drive digital currency adoption, Borges noted. According to the executive, the crypto payment option would benefit foreign tourists, including those from Russia.
