Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency, I mean, a virtual currency that serves to make transactions through the Internet and without intermediaries; it has its own quote and its own market. Currently a Bitcoin costs Bs. 237.618.42, but its value depends on supply and demand and is very volatile, it changes constantly from one day to the next and drastically.

The medium "The Country" explains the origin and operation of Bitcoin, at the same time it ensures that more and more companies accept payment with this cryptocurrency.

However, cryptocurrencies are banned in Bolivia from the 6 May 2014 and by resolution 044/2014 issued by the Board of Directors of the Central Bank of Bolivia (BCB). The restriction was issued because of various scams that arose through virtual currencies.

Response sent to Bolivia Verifies the apparent bitcoin investment company.

The professor of the career of Economics of the Public University of El Alto (UPEA), Juan Carlos Layme, explained to Bolivia Verifies that bitcoins are legal and used to make digital transactions in different parts of the world. but, that the purchase of this digital currency is made directly and not by third parties or supposed companies that promise large profits overnight.

"Investing in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin is not a safe thing, its value is very changing, now it can cost thousands and tomorrow it will only be worth a few pesos, instead of winning you can lose," Layme said..

At the same time he described the chain circulating on WhatsApp as a swindle, arguing that the purchase of Bitcoins should not be made through third parties. "No one can guarantee that you will earn a fixed amount in a certain time, these companies snoth people's money through lies and then disappear just like they did years ago with Pay Diamond and Bitcoins Chash", said Layme.

To keep that in mind

The 16 December 2020 information was disseminated claiming that journalist Jimena Antelo had enriched herself with Bitcoin. Bolivia Verifies denied that information and called it a scam.
