Crypto Industry News:
Donald Tapscott, chairman of the board of the Blockchain Research Institute, said in an interview, that the official Chinese currency, Renminbi (RMB), will become cryptocurrency. Tapscott revealed that he had recently met with the vice-president of the Communist Party in China. He reminded that President Xi Jinping believes that Blockchain is one of the most important technologies for the future of the country.
Speaking about the ban on cryptocurrency exchange operations, Tapscott outlined that China is also considering banning the extraction of cryptocurrencies. On the question of whether decentralized exchanges can operate in China - which previously banned the ICO - Tapscott said they could, although the government has a serious stance on the restriction of digital currencies and suggested that the decentralized exchanges would ultimately dominate the centralized ones thanks to their alleged ability to be transparent and identify "bad behaviors". All assets, including traditional ones, such as securities, will allegedly be located on decentralized exchanges, said Tapscott.
