The Bolivarian Council of Mayors in Venezuela have signed the "National Tax Harmonization Agreement" for 305 municipalities in the country, which includes their national cryptocurrency, Petro (PTR), as a means to collect payments of taxes and sanctions. The vice president of Venezuela, Delcy Rodriguez, will be in charge of implementing a single registry of taxpayers though a digital consultation tool and will also be in charge of creating a monitoring system for companies to record payments in the state crypto.
Only 30 of the 335 municipal governments in Venezuela are led by mayors that are opponents of current president Nicolas Maduro, and these municipalities will continue to collect tax payments in the Venezuelan fiat currency, Bolivar, as some do not have the appropriate technology to process Petro payments. However, for most of the country, the campaign has been successful in trying to get more and more adoption for the Petro.
