Data from the Localbitcoins P2P exchange collected by Coin Dance clearly demonstrates that in late September weekly trading volumes of BTC totaled 898 and 877 BTC. Bitcoin trading volumes seem to be surging in Venezuela.

When experts contacted Eduardo Gomez, head of support at Purse.io and a well-known local commentator in the crypto industry, he dismissed info about Dash becoming a competitor to Bitcoin in South America and Venezuela in particular.

When Gomez was asked about his opinion on Dash widely spreading around the continent in Twitter he called it ‘snake oil.’

His response brought up a heated discussion in the thread though since many disagreed.
