The Chinese position on the Bitcoin
As a report to NCC, China has adopted a firm stance against Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. The chinese government has claimed that these digital currencies have no intrinsic value and are used by criminals to launder money and commit fraud.
In this perspective, the PBoC has prohibited the ICO, as well as the exchange of crypto-currencies. In addition, Yao Qian is in favour of the use of technology blockchain. He said that central banks should not be limited to the algorithms of encryption existing, but rather continue to develop their own algorithms to meet the current needs of banks.
It is the opinion of Yao Qian and not the PBoC
The media has pointed out that these comments should not be construed as the official position of the PBoC. Indeed, it is the opinion of the director of the institute. Moreover, it is sure that the people’s bank considers the digital currency as an effective means to implement capital controls.
Shortly after the ban of the crypto-currency last month, Huang Zhen, a researcher affiliated with the PBoC, said he expects the bank to issue a virtual currency managed by the State.
