[CNBC] Payments giant Nexi says it is working on digital euro with the European Central Bank

SIA, which Nexi absorbed in 2020, is a partner of Quant Network!
Overledger is integrating with SIAChain’s private blockchain!

The fact that Nexi is contributing to the ECB’s (European Central Bank) Digital Euro means that the Quant Network is likely to be used as the infrastructure for the CBDC.

[Ledger Insights] UK regulators progress blockchain for regulatory reporting

I watched a video of Digital Regulatory Reporting (DRR) on the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) website and found it to be a somewhat Quant-like feature.

By the way, Mr. Gilbert had a meeting with Guy Dietrich-san at FCA before.
There is an atmosphere where the Bank of England (BoE) is taking the lead in using Quant.

Mr. Gilbert worked for the BoE for about two years starting in 2016.
It’s undisclosed whether DRR is Quant or not, so that may be an uncertain piece of information!

$USDC

[Cointelegraph] New decentralized stablecoin in China targets international trade

It details the uses and specifications of an “offshore” renminbi pegged to the digital renminbi to be piloted in China!
It’s going to be built on the Conflux Network blockchain!

I heard a government official talking about the need to separate “digital renminbi” from “digital renminbi stable coins” in a news report before, but I guess that means the stable coins will be created.

That’s right nanoda!
The digital Renminbi is used only for domestic transactions, while the offshore one is used only for international transactions.

Unlike USDT and USDC, it’s completely decentralized, so it’s not treated as a private staple coin, according to the article.
I see.

[U.Today] Huawei Launches AI-Based Blockchain Service Built On Huawei Cloud

Huawei is a member of the open invention network, which Square joined this month.
OIN is a community that shares Linux-related patents without infringing on each other’s!

Linux is also related to the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger.
Hyperledger, Quorum, and Corda are all active in China, aren’t they?

Some EEA members, like Taiwan’s BSOS, which joined Hyperledger in December 2020, are the only EEA members in the world that have partnerships with those three consortium blockchains.

Could be great.

We’re helping companies digitize their supply chain finance!
It’s digital transformation!

Looks strong.

[Crowdfund Insider] China’s Public Blockchain Nervos to Integrate with Covalent, an Indexing Solution Provider for DLT Networks

Nervos Network ($CKB) is a public permissionless blockchain.
It provides the scalability, security, and decentralization that are the foundation for building dApps.

Covalent was featured in the Data & Infrastructure section of THE BLOCK.

Covalent is AllianceBlock’s partner!
We’ll gather information from a wide range of chains and nodes to create analytical data for investment!

You’re supplementing the data and analysis results that would be lacking with DeFi alone.
It’s a great combination, and I’m sure it’s a field that will grow in the future.

$ETH

[The Block] Crypto exchange Huobi to cease all mainland China user accounts

[Wu Blockchain] Chinese cryptocurrency-related institutions and projects are announcing shutdowns and restrictions one after another (中国涉加密货币机构与项目陆续宣布关停与限制)

The Chinese government’s regulations appear to Arai-san to be groundwork for digital yuan issuance.
Are they planning to release the CBDC in time for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing?

According to a statement from the People’s Bank of China, it’s not only the trading and ordering of virtual currencies and the issuing of tokens, but “the exchange of overseas virtual currencies that provide services in mainland China via the Internet is also illegal.

Afterword

It was a week of movement in the CBDCs and the closing of exchanges in China and Korea!

It’s not peaceful.

I’m worried about the impact of both trading restrictions and the Hengda group.
Watch out for airdrop scams.

You’re a worrier.
You don’t have to worry about it so much.

Alai-san’s advice.

Are you president Bukele?
