抖音母公司字节跳动将参与央行数字货币测试

2020-7-10 14:44

 

随着中国央行数字货币(CBDC)扩展其测试阶段,越来越多的机构加入了测试。昨天,拼车公司滴滴宣布,它与中国人民银行数字货币研究所达成了一项关于人民币DCEP的合作协议。该公司表示,它将被用于智能移动。中国主要新闻媒体财新环球根据内部消息来源列出了另外两家机构。


其中一家公司就是广受欢迎的短视频剪辑平台TikTok的母公司字节跳动(ByteDance)。另一家是外卖公司美团点评。


如果涉及字节跳动,这是有新闻价值的,因为该公司似乎在做一个舞蹈本身。随着中国在香港实施新的安全法,几家社交媒体机构表示,他们将不再回应香港警方索要用户信息的请求。这些公司包括Facebook、WhatsApp、Twitter、谷歌和Telegram。TikTok是一个迟来的新成员。


此前,在中印边境发生暴力事件后,印度禁止了包括TikTok在内的几款中国应用。给出的理由是为了保护印度的主权,印度政府称,中国应用程序秘密地将数据转移到印度境外,并利用这些数据进行挖掘和分析。


中国公民运营母公司字节跳动,但从技术上讲,和许多大型中国公司一样,它是在加勒比海注册的。TikTok就是其中之一。字节跳动香港子公司拥有其主要的中国运营实体。


与此同时,中国数字货币的测试正在进行中,三个月前第一次出现了屏幕截图。不久之后,官方媒体发表了一些漫画来解释这一概念,以及更深层次的故事来解释它是如何运作的某些方面。电子人民币将在深圳、苏州、熊安、成都和未来的冬奥会举办地五个地点推出。


中国政府继续坚称,这种数字货币仍处于研发阶段,央行行长一个月前的讲话也是如此。

 

As China’s central bank digital currency (CBDC) extends its testing phase, more organizations are joining the trials. Yesterday, ride sharing firm Didi announced it reached a cooperation agreement related to the currency known as the DCEP with the Digital Currency Research Institute of the People’s Bank of China. It said it would be used for smart mobility. Leading Chinese news outlet Caixin Global listed two other organizations, based on insider sources.

 

One of the companies is ByteDance, the parent of TikTok the popular short video clip platform. Another is Meituan Dianping, the food delivery company.

 

If ByteDance is involved, it’s newsworthy because the company seems to be doing a bit of a dance itself. Following China’s imposition of new security laws in Hong Kong, several social media outlets said they would no longer respond to requests for user information from the Hong Kong police. They included Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Google and Telegram. TikTok was a belated addition.

 

This follows India banning several Chines apps, including TikTok after violence flared up on the border between India and China. The reason given was to protect India’s sovereignty and the Indian government alleged that Chinese apps surreptitiously move data outside of India and use the data for mining and profiling.

 

Chinese nationals run parent ByteDance, but technically, as with many major Chinese companies, it’s registered in the Caribbean. TikTok is one of several businesses. The ByteDance Hong Kong subsidiary owns its main Chinese operating entities.

 

Meanwhile, the testing of the Chinese digital currency is progressing with screenshots first leaked three months ago. Shortly afterward, state media published cartoons explaining the concept, and a deeper story explaining certain aspects of how it works. The digital renminbi will be rolled out in five locations, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Xiong’an, Chengdu, and future Winter Olympics sites.

 

The Chinese government continues to insist that the digital currency is still at the research and development stage, including in a talk by the Governor of the central bank a month ago.
