The Chinese Yuan is as a strong contender against the US Dollar since they want to enforce more control over their economy, there is a push to make sure that their system of money become globally accepted. This drive may be to cement itself, as the best replacement of the US Dollar as the universal currency. The recent news that Venezuela is now selling oil for the Yuan instead of the US Dollars doesn’t sound so good, plus rogue countries that are suffering under a sanction imposed by the west are using the Yuan as a tool for survival. Furthermore, the number of countries with close ties to China have been conducting their trade and investment under the radar with the Yuan, they are Russia, Germany, Sweden, Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia and Canada.
