Мобильный клиент e-CNY стал самым загружаемым приложением в Китае.

  • Last Tuesday, a mobile client for transactions in digital yuan appeared in the App Store and Play Market
  • The very next day the application headed top in popularity in the App Store
  • In mobile software services from Xiaomi and Huawei, the client also rose to the first place in terms of the number of downloads
  • Users like the convenience of the application and the ability to use the program without connecting to the network

Earlier we reported that an application for transactions in the digital yuan appeared in the App Store and Play Market. So far, the software is only available in China, and not in all areas.

However, this did not stop the app from reaching the top in popularity. In just a week, e-CNY mobile wallet became the most downloaded application in the PRC.

The program has bypassed even WeChat, the Chinese super popular messenger. According to local providers, the wallet was downloaded by 2 million iOS users and 20 million owners of Android devices.

In the App Store, e-CNY held the leading position from Wednesday to Saturday last week. It was then bypassed by the video sharing program Kuaishou.

In Xiaomi’s mobile software download service, the e-CNY wallet remained the most popular application until the beginning of this week. At Huawei – until the weekend.

“It is very comfortable. I love that the app can be used even without an internet connection, ”said Beijing resident Lily Zhang. She managed to test the software at an international exhibition back in September last year.

It is not yet known when the application will enter the global market. China continues to actively promote the national CBDC. In many respects, it is the protectionism policy of the digital yuan that caused the measures to censor the cryptocurrency segment.
