According to financial commentator Max Keiser, the US is in danger of falling through a "trap door" that is set by China, whose gold-buying spree recently surpassed 100 tons.      

In such a metaphoric way, Keiser dropped a bombshell that China's much-talked-about cryptocurrency is going to be pegged to gold during his most recent appearance on Kitco.     

“[China] is rolling out a cryptocurrency, a lot of the details have not been divulged. I can tell you that the cryptocurrency that China’s rolling out will be backed by gold. It’s a two-pronged announcement. Number one, China’s got 20,000 tonnes of gold, number two, we’re rolling out a crypto coin backed by gold, and the dollar is toast.”

China's crypto push

As reported by U.Today, the People's Bank of China plans is set to become the first central bank to roll out its own digital currency called "DCEP" after working on the project for about six years.

China's renowned interest in crypto comes after President Xi Jinping endorsed the Blockchain technology, which underpins Bitcoin. His words allegedly pushed the BTC price by about 40 percent on Oct. 25.      

As of now, very little is known about the so-called "China Coin" that has been adding more grease to the rumor mill for months. However, it is evident that the communist state is vying to become a standard-setting global superpower (for better or worse).

Bitcoin is still aiming for $100,000

When asked about his recent six-figure prediction, Keiser opined that Bitcoin could go ten million against the dollar. 

"I think it's just a matter of timing. So, that forecast is still $100,000+. But let's be honest - in dollar terms, it's infinity. It could go to five million or ten million against the dollar."

He further mentioned that gold is currently making new all-time highs against a bevy of fiat currencies, but this fact somehow remains overlooked. 

Binance CEO Chanpeng Zhao recently predicted that the BTC price could touch $16,000 "soon-ish" while strengthening the China narrative.

The article states that such a reward system would help to improve "human resource management." Soldiers would acquire or lose tokens based on their daily performance. 

“To award or deduct tokens according to one’s daily performance and thus generate an objective assessment would effectively energise the human resource management.”   

Blockchain as a tamper-proof database might come in handy for keeping records of each shooter after training. All information that is stored on a ledger cannot be altered, which increases the level of transparency.    

“It provides a technological guarantee to clean and open training and examination.”          

On top of that, PLA Daily also suggests that embedded blockchains could be used for safely storing China's classified military secrets if the country decides to go to such lengths.
