China’s CBDC Transactions Reach $14B as Uptake Slows: Report

The 100 billion yuan figure is also dwarfed by the volumes recorded by the country’s top payment providers such as Tencent’s WeChat Pay and Ant Group’s Alipay.

Ant Group is the fintech affiliate of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, which also owns the SCMP.
