China’s New Digital Currency: An Insight

China’s New Digital Currency: An Insight
China’s new digital currency is being implemented in many parts of China and will soon achieve nationwide distribution and usage for small transactions - to start with. This new currency will give the People’s Bank of China and, by extension, the Chinese Communist Party, almost unlimited visibility into the financial lives of its citizens and companies. 

Already well advanced, the PBOC's answer to SWIFT, the CIPS platform, is spreading across Asia and Europe. Combined with the e-RMB’s visibility and control features, it could be the trusted channel for the PBOC to allow the RMB to circulate more freely beyond China’s borders. The RMB and e-RMB could become far more commonly used as an international currency, displacing the use of the Euro and, maybe someday, the USD.

Andrew Work's latest report on this powerful combination of a Central Bank Digital Currency and China's answer to helping nations avoid American sanctions was released in December 2021 and is making waves. He will answer your questions and explain how the world of money and power is about to change forever.
