Unlike Bitcoin, which represents a form of decentralized finance, digital currency planned in China is anticipated to leverage both the best and worst aspects of blockchain from an everyday citizen’s perspective. It is anticipated that China will leverage its soon to be released currency as a means of controlling the commerce of its population. The sovereign nation may do by way of tracing payments between buyers and sellers via blockchain.

Used in conjunction with the country’s social credit system, China will be able to determine who is following its policies, demonstrating favorable behaviors, and receive associated rewards such as minimal restrictions on approved commerce activities. On the other hand, those individuals that are identified as not following policies, or otherwise acting in an unacceptable manner, may be restricted from trade of various types including buying and selling of certain goods and services.

In addition, the combination of digital currencies supported by blockchain technology and social credit systems will allow central banks to completely prohibit certain types of goods and services. This may be used for the betterment of society in some cases, such as preventing the trade of illegal drugs. However, it may also be used in very draconian ways, such as the immediate restriction of trade for certain products and raw materials from target countries. This brings a whole new meaning to the term trade-war, as central banks could stop the flow of goods from a given country with the press of a button.

Used in conjunction with contact tracing and other societal tracking technologies refined with the introduction of COVID-19, central authorities may also prevent physical contact between target individuals and groups. In this manner, authorities in a central controlled economy may identify, and potentially prevent, meetings in the real-world and cyber-world wherein unauthorized trade could potentially occur via barter and/or alternative currencies.

Select Research Findings:
• Non-anonymized tracking will predominate through 2026
• The social tracking solutions market as a whole will reach $33.1B by 2026
• Blockchain will be adopted by certain sovereign nations as a means to provide a view into citizen behaviors and control transactions
• The largest segment by so far is enterprise, driven by corporate spending to ensure compliance, but government use is anticipated to grow rapidly
• What started in China as a social credit system will evolve and expand to other nations as governments see the need to observe, track, and intervene with respect to citizenry
