Chinacoins, also referred to as China’s Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), represent the digital representation of the Chinese yuan, the country’s official fiat currency. But before we get into how Chinacoins were created, let’s take a look at the country’s early forays into the cryptocurrency world.
China was initially cautious in the development and application of blockchain technology. Among the technology’s best-known attributes are the relative anonymity and immutability of the information, as every blockchain transaction has a digital record and signature that can be identified, validated, stored and shared. This technology could therefore become a double-edged sword for the Communist Party of China (CPC), as it goes against the government’s efforts to censor content it considers sensitive and, in more general terms, efforts to assert its cyber-sovereignty.

However, despite initially being concerned about the emergence of blockchain technology, China’s central government has come to regard it as an opportunity, as has been the case with most developing technologies. Since the release of the 13th five-year plan in 2016 and the first White Paper on Blockchain Technology and Application Development by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in the same year, the CPC has increasingly considered blockchain as an economic, political, and geopolitical asset for the country if ‘guided’ well.
