Analysts: The new version of the 5-yuan banknotes may use blockchain and other technologies for banknote anti-counterfeiting and flow direction tracking

On April 29, the official website of the central bank issued a notice saying that from August 30 this year, the fifth set of RMB 50, 20, 10, and 1 yuan banknotes and 1 yuan, 5 yuan, and 1 cent coin will be issued in the 2019 edition. After that, it will be circulated in equal value with the same amount of RMB. It is worth noting that the 5-yuan notes selected for the application of the relevant new technology will be temporarily absent. Some analysts believe that the new version of the 5-yuan banknotes may use blockchain and other technologies as banknote anti-counterfeiting and flow direction tracking, similar to an attempt by digital currency.
