According to CoinTelegraph, following 5 years of vigorous research, the Central Bank of China announced the release of its cryptocurrency. Mu Changchun, the Deputy Director of the People’s Bank of China, stated that the new cryptocurrency is ready to be launched. The prototype of the blockchain-based currency has already been established. Yet, the launch date still hasn’t been announced.
