Petro Value

  • An allocation of an operational gold mine to each state and a bimonthly budget of 1 million Petros to be shared among them. Since gold is the ultimate asset of value but it is not used as tendered money, the Tresury of Crypto-Assets will safeguard the extracted precious metal and will grant the respective governor, the corresponding value in Petro.
  • An allocation of 5 million crude barrels a year to the Tresury of Crypto-Assets, which will be commercialized by PDVSA on their behalf. These assets plus some additional diamond, steel and iron reserves, which altogether are estimated to be worth 350 billion dollars, make the value of the each Petro very real and truly stable at $60.
