Beijing has launched a new trial of digital RMB recently, with consumers able to spend the digital currency at multiple merchants in the city.
The Bank of Communications unveiled its digital RMB trial event at Beijing Happy Valley on Wednesday. Staff members introduced some information about RMB to visitors, and then instructed them to download the digital RMB app, open the digital RMB wallet, and make their first digital RMB purchases at the amusement park.
At the first China International Consumer Products Expo held in May in Haikou, Hainan province, many banks launched trial zones to let visitors experience multiple usage scenarios involving digital RMB.
