doWHAT IS THE BLUE DOLLAR?
‘Blue dollar’ is the term given to the dollar that circulates on the black market and usually has a higher value than the official one. Some explain its name because in English, ‘blue’, in addition to meaning blue, refers to what is “dark”.
Another explanation for the meaning of ‘blue dollar’ relates it to the purchase via bonds or shares of companies known as ‘blue chips’. This denomination is also referenced with the similar color that is noticed when a fibron is applied to recognize counterfeit bills.
HOW THE BLUE DOLLAR ORIGINATED
