According to the data provided by LocalBitcoins, a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency trading platform, the weekly volume of Bitcoin in Venezuela achieved a new all-time high.
Measured in Bitcoin, the weekly volume of the BTC-to-Venezuelan bolivar (VES) pair increased to 2,454 BTC. In U.S. dollars, that is worth $8.95 million per week and $1.29 million per day.
Matt Odell, a cryptocurrency researcher, said that the volume would be higher if the 40 percent premium in the Venezuelan market is priced in.
2454 bitcoin weekly volume x $3650 = $8,957,100 this week ÷ 7 = $1,279,585 per day on average, higher if you account for the ~40% price premium which I didn't.
