Venezuela president Nicolas Maduro said the government has received more than 171,000 certified purchase orders for the petro, the country's forthcoming cryptocurrency.

In a Twitter post, the country's leader claimed that 40.8 percent of the purchase orders were in U.S. dollars, 6.5 percent were in euros, 18.4 percent were in ethereum and 33.8 percent were in bitcoin.

He further claimed that more than 3,500 companies placed bids for petro tokens. The remaining 82,000 purchasers are individuals, according to Venezuela-based news group teleSUR.

Nice stats, with bitcoin at more than 33%. Does it mean that bitcoin will be more accepted by different countries now based on the stats? And who are the buyers that decides its better to pay with bitcoins?

I don't know if this really reflects the correct distribution as per Maduro, but we should take everything with a grain of salt here. And 3,500 companies place a bid? Wow, astonishing numbers. Let's see how everything goes here. I'm not saying it will not be successful, but I smell something doesn't add up.
