On January 23, the Economic Daily article "Europe Reveals Digital Currency Ambitions". The article said that whether the European Central Bank plans to launch a "European version" of digital currency or EU member states launch their own central bank digital currency based on the euro, Europe is seizing the lead in this field, preventing the U.S. and other competitors from overtaking and occupying the international financial market. A strategic position that will lead to the formulation of global financial governance rules has been established. "Europe should be 'top-notch' in the development of digital currencies." European Central Bank President Lagarde made no secret of this European ambition.
