1. Hotspot tracking: digital economy and digital currency become the new battlefield of big country game

Event: 9.14-18, Shanghai Blockchain International Week was successfully held, and the digital economy and digital currency have become the focus of the industry. The Reuters news in Berlin exposed Libra a basket of reserve currencies, and the international opened the digital currency game model.

The digital economy and digital currency have become global hotspots and will profoundly affect the future global economy and financial markets. From September 14th to September 18th, the “2019 Shanghai Blockchain International Week” was held by Wanxiang Blockchain Lab. This year's blockchain week gathers industry elite representatives, with the theme of “new decade, new starting point”, focusing on the industry for ten years and looking forward to the next decade of legend. The digital economy and digital currency have become the focus of global attention, which will profoundly affect the development of China's market economy and even the future global economic and financial markets. In the ten years since the development of blockchain, digital technology innovation has developed rapidly, improving the efficiency of social production and resource allocation, and emerging many business model innovations to promote the global era of digital economy. Among them, digital currency has become the core of the digital economy.

Before Libra, financial giants such as JP Morgan Chase and Mitsubishi Group began to deploy digital currency, trying to issue stable coins to improve the internal settlement efficiency of the group. Traditional financial institutions started the layout of digital currency in the early days to meet the future industry changes. With the continuous advancement of Libra, all countries have felt that the new thing of digital currency will have a huge impact on the monetary sovereignty of various countries and the future of financial markets. Especially in recent years, trade friction between countries has brought variables to the global economic and financial order, digital economy. And the digital currency will become the main battlefield and "nuclear weapon" established by the new order. Whether it is from the perspective of the development of the blockchain industry or the larger vision of the global economic order, digital currency will be the most critical link.

China's central bank is actively developing digital currency, promoting financial innovation and creating new opportunities. As the central bank's digital currency gradually approached and the market's attention continued to heat up, the central bank's Director Mu Changchun made an in-depth interpretation of the digital currency in the “Getting on the Frontier of Technology Finance: Libra and Digital Currency Outlook”. Outlook. In the current situation of China's online payment, the central bank's digital currency is now focusing on M0 replacement instead of M1/M2 replacement. This is because M1/M2 has now been electronically and digitally implemented. Because it is based on the existing commercial bank account system, there is no need to digitize it with digital currency. In addition, various types of online payment mechanisms that support M1 and M2 circulation interbank payment institutions are increasingly efficient and can meet the needs of China's economic development. In contrast, existing M0 (banknotes and coins) are easy to be forged anonymously, and there are risks for money laundering, terrorist financing, and the like. In addition, electronic payment tools, such as bank cards and Internet payments, are based on the existing tight coupling model of bank accounts, and the public's demand for anonymous payments cannot be fully met. Therefore, electronic payment tools cannot replace M0. Especially in areas where account services and communication networks are poorly covered, people's dependence on cash is still relatively high. Therefore, the design of China's central bank DC/EP maintains the attributes and main features of cash, and also meets the requirements of portability and anonymity. It is a better tool to replace cash. China's digital currency has begun closed-loop testing, and Shenzhen has become a core city for digital currency research and application experiments. In connection with the "Opinions of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council on Supporting the Construction of the Pioneering Zone for Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" (referred to as "Opinions") issued in August, people have got more clear information, Shenzhen from the "Special Zone" to the "Demonstration Zone", the country The policy gives digital currency the opportunity to land for the first time, and Shenzhen will become a technology research and development center in the field of digital currency. In the 5G era, digital currency innovation will bring huge development opportunities and market space.
