"A main gathering place for Venezuela's growing bitcoin community is a secret Facebook group started in 2013 by a young libertarian activist named Randy Brito. As I recounted in a feature story in the current issue of Reason magazine, 'The Secret, Dangerous World of Venezuelan Bitcoin Mining,' the 'Bitcoin Venezuela' Facebook group 'serves as an online bazaar featuring ads for cars, bikes, boats, liquor, protein supplements, soap, smartphones, hiking boots, athletic gear, video games, and toilet paper.' I'm yet to see a single post about politics, economics, or the horrors of living under socialism." (12/08/16)
