Beijing Presses Fast-Food Chain McDonald's to Support Digital Yuan — China's CBDC Expected to Launch in February

According to a recent report, Beijing is pressing the fast-food retail chain McDonald’s to support the digital yuan before the Winter Olympics in China scheduled for February 2022. The report notes that China is also pushing companies like Visa and Nike to join in on the central bank digital currency (CBDC) rollout.

Chinese Government Pushes McDonald’s, Visa, Nike to Accept CBDC

The People’s Republic of China is preparing for its full roll-out of the CBDC in February 2022, during the introduction of the Beijing Winter Olympics. According to the Financial Times’ (FT) unnamed sources, the Chinese government wants McDonald’s to get on board with the digital yuan. FT notes that a large quantity of McDonald’s restaurants in Shanghai are currently testing China’s CBDC.

Now Beijing is pressing the company itself to get more McDonald’s restaurants to follow Shanghai’s lead. A source stemming from McDonald’s told FT: “Shanghai is our pilot city and we will learn from customers’ response.” The information regarding the pressure from the Chinese government derives from sources that are “close to China’s financial regulators,” the report emphasized.

China Is Gunning for a Winter Olympics Roll-Out — Digital Yuan Testing Continues to Increase

Every day, China seems closer to launching the digital yuan as news of the testing has been leaked to the media on a regular basis. For instance, two prominent financial institutions, China Construction Bank (CCB) and Bank of Communications (Bocom), are testing the CBDC for investment funds and insurance services.

For the first time, China’s CBDC was leveraged in the country’s futures market at the end of August. In mid-July, the country published the digital yuan’s white paper, which described smart contracts and tracing large transfers.

On July 10, the digital yuan’s wallet was opened to 10 million Chinese citizens and the following day a report noted that over $40 million in ‘digital yuan red envelopes’ has been dispersed since the project started. The country seems like it could be ready to launch the CBDC by the 2022 Winter Olympics, but it’s only three months away.

Meanwhile, as China’s CBDC is leaps and bounds further ahead than most countries, Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell said at the end of September that he doesn’t think the U.S. is behind the eight-ball in terms of a CBDC launch.

Can impermanent loss protect you against a price crash?

I was tinkering with this impermanent loss calculator and noticed that if the price of an asset drops while you are using it to provide liquidity, that seems to buffer you against losses because you lose less than you would have if you had just held.

For example, if we use the calculator and simulate depositing $1000 into a ETH/DAI pool (50% weight each) and the price of ETH drops, say 50%, you are left with ~$707.1. This is sure better than the $500 you’d have if you just held.

Is this correct, or is there something I’m missing? And how exactly does this work?
