1. People’s Bank of China: we are close to issuing a national cryptocurrency

The financial regulator began developing its own altcoin last year. Although digital money transactions and ICOs are still banned in the country

The People’s Bank of China (PBoC) is close to issuing its cryptocurrency, said Bloomberg, deputy head of payments department of financial regulator Mu Changchun. He did not give specific deadlines but noted that the government had been working to create a national digital asset since last year.

Mu Changchun participated in a profile forum that took place over the weekend in Yichun City in Jiangxi Province in eastern China. The expert claims that the Central Bank’s cryptocurrency is “close to release.”

Since the fall of 2017, the country has been prohibited from conducting ICOs, as well as trading in cryptocurrencies. Over the past two years, 88 Chinese crypto exchanges have been closed, and 85 projects on the initial placement of tokens have been discontinued.

Despite the Central Bank’s tough stance on cryptocurrencies, in July 2019, one of the largest local financial news providers, SINA Finance, added a new section with digital assets. Now, over 10 million users from China will be able to track 36 cryptocurrency rates, as well as gain access to news from the world of the blockchain industry.
