6 State-Owned Banks to Start Whitelisting Clients at Certain Branches

The central bank digital currency (CBDC) also known as “DCEP†has already started to see acceptance from various merchants in China.

Individuals can spend the digital yuan at vending machines in the Shanghai subway and the Xujiahui shopping center as well. Huijin department stores are also accepting the People’s Bank of China’s CBDC.

Internet platforms have also been experimenting with the digital yuan with platforms such as Meituan. After various tests throughout the past year, China’s central bank approved the six banks to start whitelisting clients at certain branches.

The Securities Times’ report also details that interested users can simply scan a QR code to access the application link to apply for the CBDC wallet. The guidelines also say that customers can bundle their bank card funds into the wallet too. The digital yuan wallet has a maximum payment limit of 1,000 yuan per day and customers can upgrade for higher payment tiers.
