MiamiHerald / The White House on Monday continued tightening financial sanctions on Venezuela, issuing an order prohibiting U.S. citizens from making any transactions in the Petro, the socialist administration’s newly launched cryptocurrency.
The presidential executive order prohibits U.S. citizens from dealing in “any digital currency, digital coin, or digital token” issued by Venezuela after January 9, 2018.
Venezuela launched the Petro last month, and President Nicolas Maduro had touted the new cryptocurrency as a way to raise international financing amid Washington’s crackdown.
Also Monday, the U.S. Treasury sanctioned four current and former economic and finance officials in Venezuela, freezing their assets and barring U.S. citizens from doing business with them.
Trump bans use of Veneuzela's crypto-currency by U.S.
