COVID-19 Incentivizing Crypto and Leading Mainstream Adoption 2020/05/17 11:41:00 Cointelegraph
The COVID-19 crisis has pushed people to seek alternative technological solutions as blockchain and crypto become more popular. Crypto is a place where everything changes faster than in any other industry, and seeing as it was born in the age of the internet, this is quite fitting. Today, China is leading the global digital asset initiative. The train of innovations seems to go faster as the digital yuan ( also referred to as DCEP ) has fueled rapid development in the field of distributed ledger technology. Instead of wallowing in a swamp of regulatory uncertainty, the Chinese government shifted its attention to benefits. The Chinese have not wasted time, and despite being the country where the new coronavirus started and has since made a huge impact on society and economy, tech development did not stop, but rather accelerated at astonishing rates. Reportedly, McDonald’s and Starbucks are among a group of 19 restaurants, retail shops and entertainment companies taking part in a trial of China’s digital yuan , part of a pilot program prior to a wider roll-out of the new digital currency.
