December 24, 2019

China’s Central Bank, The People’s Bank of China’s (PBoC) deputy director Mu Changchun said that the digital form of the yuan will be different from Bitcoin and stablecoins.

On Dec. 22 South China Morning Post reported that the head of the digital currency research institute at the PBoC said that China’s digital currency would be a digital form of the yuan with no room to speculate on its value as it will not have any backing of a basket of currencies.

Mu added:

“The currency is not for speculation. It is different to bitcoin or stable tokens, which can be used for speculation or require the support of a basket of currencies.”

Mu indicated that China’s new national digital currency would operate in a two-tier system, with PBoC on top, and commercial banks in the second tier of the centralized system.
