BitCNY is a fungible smart coin market pegged to Chinese currency, Chinese Yuan. Its demand emanates from users desiring similar purchasing power as that of the Chinese yuan and subsequent ability to carry out transactions.

The market-pegged crypto-currency is a unique category of Smart coils. A typical market-pegged Smartcoin follows the actual price of the real currency very closely. They were established by BitShares using its software leveraging prediction markets to ensure the Smartcoin value closely corresponds with the real currency value. These coins neither debase nor inflate.
The decentralized Bitshares exchange utilizes typical price feeds published by delegates in order to track actual prices of silver, gold, oil, Chinese yuan, US dollar and other assets and currencies globally.
Lending of Smartcoins into existence is through the network where a buyer and a short are matched at a cost that reflect median price as published by the particular delegates at the given moment. On creating the Smartcoin, the short lays up collateral as a technique for backing the value of the Smartcoin. In case the short desires to cover, he/she will need to buy back those Smartcoins so as to recover the collateral whose worth is much more. BTS is used as collateral by BitShares and as such if collateral value drops relative to the BitCNY, then Bitshare system covers this loan through selling that collateral BTS in exchange for BitCNY.
Bitshares blockchain can be used to trade these Smart coils like BitCNY by relying on an internal exchange courtesy of the BitShare open-source software which can be downloaded for free.
