Fuzhou City, March 2022. Newland Group, one of the world's top high-tech solution providers, with digital technology in its DNA, is proud to have been selected to deploy cashless payment solutions for the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games.
Based on its high-performance and ergonomic payment device series, Newland implemented a robust solution for cashless payments and value-added services to support the roll-out of the digital yuan "e-CNY" during this major international event.
The digital yuan is a new digital currency issued by China's central bank designed to make electronic transactions instantaneous and highly user-friendly. This is done by capturing a QR code which is generated by a specific application in the payment device, allowing a transaction to be completed securely in less than a second.
The e-CNY, supported by Newland payment terminals, has brought a new payment experience to local and international users, who have been able to download a digital yuan app on their mobile phones. The e-CNY also allows this new currency to be stored on physical cards or on wristbands, without having to open a specific bank account in China.
According to Huang Lisong, head of Digital Yuan business for the Beijing Winter Olympics, "as the sole provider of payment solutions for the Beijing Winter Olympics, Newland has been able to ensure full acceptance for the e-CNY payment system."
Kazem Aminaee, Newland NPT's International President, added: "As a top global payment technology provider with almost 30 years of experience developing state-of-the-art, secure devices, we are delighted to have seen such widespread use of our solutions being applied during this prestigious event. We are very proud that thousands of athletes, volunteers and visitors enjoyed a seamless and convenient payment experience".
