In April 2020, the People’s Bank of China (PBC) revealed that it will conduct the pilot tests of digital currency. Further, the trial will be in Shenzhen, Suzhou, Xiong’an, Chengdu, and the future Winter Olympics Games in Beijing.

However, the conduct of an internal pilot test in the few cities in China to continue improved and perfect working.

PBC prioritizing implementation of the digital yuan

In a recent video conference call, the People’s Bank of China notified that it will prioritize the implementation of the “digital yuan”.

Furthermore, the central bank has been focusing on the issuance of digital currency for the past 6 years. However, its digital currency has great advantages such as suitable transactions, low issuance costs, and difficult replication. Conversely, it can build a balanced relationship with the sovereign currency.

Currently, China is undergoing hasty research and development in the context of digital currency. Though, several issues have to be rectified at the technical level. It is expected that in the future acceptance of the central bank’s digital currency might increase. If it does, it will form a balanced relationship with the sovereign currency.
