Shanghai airline Spring Airlines began accepting digital yuan for the first time. This marked the beginning of the use of Chinese cryptocurrency in the civil aviation industry.

According to TASS, the purchase amount was 560 yuan to pay for the flight on the Shanghai-Shenzhen route. To pay with cryptocurrency, you must use the official airline application.

According to experts, China is one of the world leaders in creating its own cryptocurrency. At the same time, to use it, there is no need for a cellular signal or Internet access. There is no exact timetable for the release of the digital yuan, but the authorities have reported testing the currency in different cities since 2019.
