Can yuan coin Dominate the International Digital Currency World?
The rise in the use of digital currencies ad cryptocurrencies has proven to be more evident in recent times. This is because there have been more and more businesses and other financial entities that make use of these types of currencies for payments and other types of financial transactions.
And about digital currencies, there is a new development in the Chinese financial market that will surely change the way people would make payments and business transactions, and that is through the use of the digital version of the yuan, the official currency of China. Not only it will make a change in the way the Chinese market will operate, but quite possibly in the international market, too.
The Formulation of the Digital Yuan
The digital version of the yuan, popularly referred to as the yuan coin, was created as a means to make the process of various financial transactions such as bills payment and shopping less complicated, more convenient, and much easier.
Basically, it is the digitized version of the yuan currency. Just like other types of digital currency, the digital yuan can be used in many forms of payment and other financial transactions, whether it be through physical or digital markets.
But this is quite different from what they call cryptocurrency, as the former is regulated by the central bank of China and is more secure, whereas the latter is not regulated by any central bank or financial authority, and has less security on the part of the user and the data.
Digital Yuan Towards Overseas Use
As of the present, the digital yuan has been in commercial use in four major cities in China since its introduction. Because of that, the currency now known as the yuan coin has been accepted as a mode of payment in all business, financial, and commercial entities all over the country.
And with the success of the digital yuan in the country, there have been numerous plans and proposals from the central bank and numerous financial sectors that the successful digital currency should be implemented for international use as well, especially with the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing.
This has been viewed as a potential competition against the domination of the US dollar as the main player in the international market, knowing the great strength of the yuan currency itself. However, US companies who are thinking of entering the Chinese market will find the digital yuan to be a great opportunity for them to expand and strengthen their brand and sales to the rich Chinese market and its numerous consumers.
On the side of the proponents of the internationalization of the yuan, the interests of major US companies to enter the Chinese market will be a great way for them to adopt the use of the digital yuan as a mode of payment, which is a great way to spread the use of the yuan as a digital currency to the rest of the world.
This is why the use of the digital yuan is indeed the future of digital currency not only within the Chinese market but eventually of the international market as well.
