Crypto Industry News:
The People’s Bank of China (PBoC) claimed that its digital currency “can be said to be ready.”
According to the deputy director of PBoC, Mu Changchuna, the prototype that adopts Blockchain architecture was successfully developed after five years of research. His statement, made at the China Finance 40 Forum, was announced by the local news service Shanghai Securities News.
He said digital currency emission using pure Blockchain architecture is difficult to achieve in a country as large as China because retailers require high-performance concurrency.
The digital currency will also adopt a two-tier operating system to satisfy a “complex economy with a vast territory and large population.” In this system, PBoC will be at a higher level and commercial banks at a lower level. According to Mu, this will improve accessibility, increase adoption rates among the public, and promote innovation among commercial entities.
According to the director of PBoC, the digital currency is designed to be suitable for “small high-frequency retail business scenarios.”
As reported by Cointelegraph, PBoC plans to overtake the US and Libra Facebook by releasing domestic cryptocurrency, while US politicians are holding back the development of social network stablecoin due to regulatory concerns.
Despite Mu’s optimistic comments, it is not yet clear when exactly the Chinese digital currency will be issued.

The best strategy in the current market conditions is to trade with the larger timeframe trend, which is still up. All the shorter timeframe moves are being treated as a correction inside of the uptrend. The larger degree WXY correction might have been completed and the market might be ready for another impulsive wave up of a higher degree.
