Tencent Survey Reveals Chinese Economists Divided On Future Of Blockchain, Crypto (cointelegraph.com)
China and the future of blockchain, here’s the best tl;dr summary we could make:
China’s economics experts fail to agree on the future of blockchain and digital currency, according to a survey from internet giant Tencent, cited by local news outlet Jiemian Feb. 1.
Sent to 100 chief economists from banks, research institutions and universities, the survey was reportedly conducted by Tencent’s Financial Science and Technology Think Tank.
Roughly half – 51 percent – of respondents would support Beijing issuing a central bank digital currency, a blockchain-based version of the yuan.
Economists fell into three groups: 33 percent believed the technology was highly important, 32 percent were more neutral and 19 percent were unenthused about blockchain.
As Cointelegraph previously reported, China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China, continues to explore the possibility of issuing its own centralized digital currency, in line with various other jurisdictions worldwide.
