The pandemic brought with it a high interest in limiting the use of physical money. This need sparked the interest of central banks to generate their own digital currencies. This time will be a major turning point for crypto investors. Finally, speculators will understand that cryptocurrencies are not themselves digital currencies but instruments of financial speculation. We do not affirm that they will disappear but they will remain in the sphere of commodities markets.
China has been at the forefront in developing its own digital currency. It has been working on the initiative since 2014. Chinese central bank officials have already conducted mass trials in major cities, such as Shenzhen, Chengdu and Hangzhou.
“China’s experiment is on a very large scale,” said the former chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. “When the world arrives in Beijing next winter for the Winter Olympics, they will use the new digital Renminbi to shop and stay in hotels and to buy restaurant meals.
