Rumors about Venezuela accepting Bitcoin payments for passport procedures could help Bitcoin

Although not officially confirmed, the government of Venezuela seems to be accepting Bitcoin for foreign passport procedures. A Reddit post made hours ago stated that Venezuela is supporting Bitcoin. In the post, we can see the Venezuelan SAIME showing a BTC payment option. 

A lot of people thought it was fake but we now have other posts and pictures from other people showing the same thing. 

According to the official SAIME website, users only have 8 minutes to complete the Bitcoin transaction. It also seems that the rate employed by SAIME is cheaper compared to the actual price of Bitcoin.
