Reports of the CBDC’s first real-world test floated only last month, which suggested that the initial pilot was planned for the city of Shenzhen before the end of 2019 with the possibility of including the city of Suzhou. The sectors included in the pilot program reportedly included commerce, transportation, education, and medical care.

Meanwhile, the endorsement of blockchain technology by Chinese President Xi Jinping has spurred a host of blockchain initiatives across the country. In fact, various branches of the PBoC, including the Nanjing branch, the Hefei branch, the Yinchuan branch, and others, have been organizing lectures and seminars on fintech and blockchain development.
