SurBitcoin, the first-ever Venezuelan bitcoin exchange and marketplace has launched. The country’s foreign currency policy has been restricting exchanges for several years now, and since then the only legal method for Venezuelans to get US dollars is through a government agency. They could have loads of bolivars and still be unable to buy the sorts of goods that many in the developed world take for granted. SurBitcoin is a huge help, because users are now able to exchange bolivars for bitcoins on the site while going around government currency restrictions in the process.
