China’s Digital Yuan Wallet App Now in iOS and Android App Stores

China’s central bank has released its digital currency wallet app ahead of the Winter Olympics. The wallet app for the digital yuan, also known as e-CNY, can now be downloaded from the iOS and Android app stores in the country.

Digital Yuan Wallet App Now Downloadable From iOS and Android App Stores

China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), has released a pilot version of its central bank digital currency (CBDC) wallet application.

Developed by the PBOC Digital Currency Research Institute, the wallet app for e-CNY, also known as Digital Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP), is now available for download in the iOS and Android app stores in China. Previously, the wallet app was only downloadable via private links. The app is free to use.

Mu Changchun, head of the PBOC Digital Currency Research Institute, said in November that about 140 million Chinese residents had opened a digital yuan account as of October 2021, with accumulated transactions reaching 62 billion yuan (US$9.7 billion) since launch.

PBOC Governor Yi Gang said in November that China would continue to advance the development of its central bank digital currency and improve its design and usage, including increasing its interoperability with existing payment tools.

Inside the digital yuan wallet app, there is a notice explaining that the app is in a research and development pilot phase. According to SCMP, new user registrations are limited to the areas undergoing digital yuan trials and through major banks that provide e-CNY services. The trial regions are Shenzhen, Suzhou, Xiongan, Chengdu, Shanghai, Hainan, Changsha, Xian, Qingdao, Dalian, and venues of this year’s Winter Olympics, hosted by Beijing.
