Digital RMB itself is innovation , The most important value of innovation is to improve efficiency 、 Solve problems that cannot be broken through by existing methods “ ills ”. On the premise of mature technology , If digital RMB is used in B End scene , Can make “ information flow ” And “ Capital flow ” Become , Make the transaction more smooth and efficient .

According to the relevant person in charge of Jingdong technology , In the process of enterprise procurement , Enterprises place orders online , Then, offline transfer payment is often used to pay for the goods . This means that the order forms “ information flow ” And transfer “ Capital flow ” It's separate. , Therefore, the platform must hire someone to perform reconciliation , Find out which fund corresponds to which order .

Of course , It is impossible for an enterprise to reconcile manually , But even if there is technology in the background to match funds with orders , It still takes manpower and material resources .

Digital RMB is different . Some insiders think , The digital RMB itself is a currency , Its flow direction has formed “ Capital flow ”.

The pain point of banks doing this kind of business is , Whether the order is true 、 Whether the whereabouts of enterprise funds are controllable , So as to judge the risk of the loan .“ If digital RMB is used as a means of payment , These problems can be effectively solved .”

The above bankers also said frankly , Although many banks have tested blockchain technology in the supply chain , This means that the information side can be “ It can be traced back to ”、 carrying “ Intelligent contract ”, However, blockchain technology alone is still unable to achieve “ information flow ” And “ Capital flow ” The combination of . This is also a very mature electronic payment system in China's financial system , One of the reasons why we have to build a digital RMB .

Force B End or backward push retail payment popularity

The central bank has said many times , Digital RMB is a retail central bank digital currency , It is mainly used to meet domestic retail payment demand .

Wang Pengbo, senior analyst of Broadcom financial industry, introduced ,“ Retail payments ” Literally , This usually mainly refers to C End retail consumption , But whether the popularity of digital RMB application in the future , And the increase in innovation , Do not rule out “ Retail payments ” The connotation and extension of .
