The proposal of the Asonacrip It was received by some users with a degree of optimism. For others, however This does not avoid the problems of putting it into practice.
The community challenges the proposal
Venezuela is a country where, despite its large cryptocurrency level movement, it has poor communication and internet infrastructure, which in turn has a major impact on the massive adoption of cryptocurrencies. Economist Aaron Olmos, an expert on cryptocurrencies in the country, has spoken for a long and intense time, stressing that Venezuela is not a “Cryptonization“”
The user @ottojoseperezFor example, he complained about it Many users have no smartphone or internet connection to experiment with Petro and the VeMonedero. Instead, he suggested that Mobile wallet::
VeMonedero obliges the BUYER to have a smartphone and the Internet. NOT ALL PEOPLE have the best option for them is a mobile wallet, because everyone can only shop in offers with their home QR or ID number and a password and only the SELLER has the Internet and requires a smartphone

@arodhain turn recommended to use the text message type Dash text, Given the impossibility of having stable 3G and 4G connections in the country:
I miss the suggestion. Because there is no stable or affordable 3G or 4G service in VZLA. Neither sale of a funded smartphone (sale, no subsidy) It is ABSOLUTELY necessary to develop 1 app to collect and pay for Petros that work via SMS. It is nothing new, there is DASHTEXT

Another important concern that users expressed in their replies to Tweetis related to the weak and unreliable internal infrastructure of the Petro, since many operations remain in the air, judging by that Tweet from @ Srjauregui::
There are many drawbacks that need to be addressed as soon as possible because a reliable system needs to be created in which people who are afraid to stay in the balance are put without fear. but hopefully the day will come when we all deal with the petro every day

It is therefore to be expected what will happen to this proposal in a national context, which is the result of the Covid-19and its consistent contribution to an economic crisis that has been developing for years.
