“Kaicheng Red Envelope” Subsidizes Citizens’ Daily Consumption of Digital RMB in Hangzhou in the Future
It is reported that the issuance of the digital renminbi “Kaicheng red envelope” by Meituan this time is the first important action of the scene support institution after the digital renminbi pilot landed in Hangzhou.
The digital renminbi is a digital form of legal tender issued by the People’s Bank of China. Recently, as the digital renminbi pilot covers new cities such as Hangzhou, its promotion and popularization has accelerated, and it has also brought more livelihood benefits to people everywhere.
According to Meituan, since January this year, Meituan opened the digital renminbi full-scenario payment channel and launched the digital renminbi livelihood consumption subsidy, and has driven a total of 6.4 billion yuan in various types of livelihood consumption. Among them, more than 92% of the digital RMB livelihood consumption subsidy flows to the small and high-frequency consumption scenarios of ordinary people’s daily life such as food delivery, grocery shopping, and catering, which effectively drives the recovery of offline consumption and the development of small and micro entity merchants.
As the third batch of digital renminbi pilot areas, Hangzhou has a developed digital economy and an active consumer market. Opportunities such as the Asian Games will also create good conditions for the digital renminbi to penetrate into the lives of Hangzhou people. Experts said that the issuance of digital renminbi consumption subsidies by Meituan in Hangzhou is expected to help accelerate the popularization of digital renminbi in Hangzhou, effectively subsidize the daily consumption of Hangzhou citizens, and enjoy the inclusiveness and convenience of digital renminbi.
Statistics show that as of March this year, a total of more than 2.5 million users have received digital RMB red envelopes in Meituan and used digital RMB for consumption.
It is understood that the event will continue until June 30. Meituan said that, as the preferred service platform for Hangzhou citizens’ daily life, Meituan will continue to promote the integration of digital renminbi into the lives of Hangzhou citizens under the guidance of relevant departments. In the future, more digital RMB promotions will be launched in Hangzhou one after another.
