Crypto Industry News:
The People's Bank of China plans to use its digital currency at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
According to a media report, Sun Guofeng, head of the PBoC's monetary policy department, said the bank did not have a schedule to introduce digital currency. However, according to Sun's statement, the PBoC will likely launch it ahead of the 2022 Winter Olympics as they plan to use it at an international sporting event.
The news comes as China is ramping up pilot projects for the digital yuan. Currently, China's central bank is testing its digital currency in Shenzhen, Suzhou, Xiongan and Chengdu. The bank also planned to introduce a digital currency for pilot tests in other regions, including Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, and the Greater Bay area of Hong Kong.
A recent official statement from the bank also noted that the digital yuan was only tested for small retail transactions. Debunking rumors about the impossibility of converting digital currency into banknotes, the central bank also clarified that digital yuan is legal tender that users can convert into banknotes at a 1: 1 ratio.
While there is still too little information on the Chinese digital currency to say anything about its launch and use cases, it is fairly obvious that the bank is making rapid progress towards its introduction.
