After China and the United States, Kazakhstan is the third-largest Bitcoin mining region in the world.Kazakhstan determined that it may launch a digital tenge as its own national digital currency (CBDC). The findings of the second round of testing were made public by the National Bank of Kazakhstan (NBK).


Kazakhstan's CBDC would be merged with BNB Chain, a blockchain created by the cryptocurrency exchange, according to an announcement made by Binance CEO Changpeng "CZ" Zhao in late October. The main reason the nation conducted research on CBDC was to see if it might raise financial inclusion, encourage competition and innovation in the payments sector, and boost the country's worldwide competitiveness.


The pilot study on offline payments and programmability suggested that market participants and infrastructure actors be included for various situations and suggested clarifying wording for the government's regulators to use. The most recent scholarly investigation supported Kazakhstan's decision to implement the digital tenge. The report's summary reads roughly as follows: "It is proposed to ensure a gradual deployment over three years, taking into consideration the necessity for technology upgrades, infrastructural preparedness, the creation of an operational model, and a regulatory framework."
