Recently, China’s central bank issued a proposed banking law to legalize the digital yuan and ban any other stablecoins locally. The move intends to eliminate any digital currencies that endeavour to battle with China’s CBDC. The bill prevents any individuals or entities from formulating the yuan-pegged digital tokens that might substitute the digital yuan. The bill also emphasizes the consequences of infringing the regulations. Moreover, in October, approximately 50,000 people received a total of $1.5 million worth cryptocurrency in a giveaway organized by the government.
