Digital Yuan Won’t Be Fully Anonymous but Offers ‘Controllable’ Privacy Protection, Says Official

Privacy has been a discussion that has not gone unnoticed when it comes to the forthcoming launch of the digital yuan. The head of the People’s Bank of China-run Digital Currency Research Institute had firmly pointed out that anonymity cannot be guaranteed at all.
Feature Seeks to Avoid Tax Evasion and Finance Terrorism
During an interview with the Securities Times, Ma Changchun told the 2021 China Development Forum that a fully anonymous central bank digital currency (CBDC) is impossible.
The reason, said the official, is that the government needs to make it compliant with the anti-money laundering (AML), know-your-customer (KYC), and counter-terrorist financing (CTF) measures.
Per the official, such transactions should also be scrutinized to avoid tax evasion schemes through the upcoming Chinese CBDC, developed by the PBoC.
However, Ma clarified that there would be a “controllable anonymization” technology implemented in the digital yuan.
Although he didn’t explain in-depth the “controllable anonymization” concept, Ma pointed out that such anonymity is the one that it’s commonly used for privacy consumer protection purposes.
