The whole situation when it started going south was such a mess in general. How can any part of a country function when it currency and economy doesn't have any value.
It does however make an interesting case study for the usability of crypto in the general world. Not taking away from how hard it must be to live through a crises like this but we can see dash being properly road tested and see it being used as an alternative for a fiat economy. If it can gain mass adoption in the country and outside Venezuela as a result then who knows what could snowball from that.
In Venezuela, the Dash treasury funded a call centre to help people set up wallets, monthly conferences in Caracas, among other projects to get the word out, and it worked. Discover Dash lists over 1000 retailers in Venezuela - restaurants, real estate agents, accountants, and it seems there are many more small retailers which aren't listed, food trucks and stalls in Caracas and Maracay.
These are all beginnings to mass adoption of crypo for general use which is the push that they all need. One of the main problems with most blockchains is the lack of working product. This is a fine example of it being a feasible alternative to an existing structure. Hopefully it works out for the people who need it.
