Back in September, Caracas and Beijing have signed an agreement that pertains to "investments in technology and growth.” China, with its infamous clampdown on cryptocurrencies, remains the only country that earlier expressed its intention to invest in the Petro cryptocurrency. Dagong Global Credit Rating, a leading China’s credit rating agency, earlier claimed that Venezuela’s oil-pegged coin is a boon to the international currency system, also pointing out the differences between Petro and ordinary decentralized digital assets.
