«President Nicolas Maduro has decided to extend the turnover of 100 bolivars as legal tender until July 20, 2017,» wrote on Friday night in his microblog on Twitter Vice-President Tarek al-Aissami. This time, the circulation of 100 bolívares extended for two months, although previously this measure was taken each time for a period of one month.
In mid-December 2016, Maduro announced the termination of treatment within 72 hours 100 bill bolivars, the value of which on the «black market» was then equal to just about 2.5 cents. But then, the circulation of banknotes was extended until January 2, then to 20 Jan, 20 Feb, 20 March, 20 April and 20 may.
