BEIJING — China’s central bank is “quite worried” about risks to the global financial system from privately developed digital currencies, particularly so-called global stablecoins.
These digital currencies are tied to a fixed value, such as a government-backed currency like the U.S. dollar. One popular example is Tether, which has raised concerns in the U.S.
“Some commercial organizations’ so-called stablecoins, especially global stablecoins, may bring risks and challenges to the international monetary system, and payments and settlement system, etc.,” Fan Yifei, a deputy governor of the People’s Bank of China, told reporters Thursday in Mandarin, according to a CNBC translation.
“We are still quite worried about this issue, so we have taken some measures,” Fan said.
