In terms of responsibilities, the People’s Bank of China, under the leadership of the State Council, formulates and implements monetary policies and macro-prudential policies, prevents and defuses financial risks, and maintains financial stability. The goal of monetary policy is to maintain the stability of the currency value and thereby promote economic growth.

According to the draft, no unit or individual is allowed to make and sell tokens, coupons and digital tokens to replace RMB in circulation in the market.
