“I would like to note that this implementation is the world’s first debit payment card linked to an account in the digital currency of a central bank,” said Zhalenov (cited by TASS).

The technology allows existing payment cards to be integrated with the digital tenge platform; Thanks to this, you can pay in digital tenge anywhere in the world using ApplePay, SamsungPay and other devices, he explained.

In 2024, Kazakhstan expects large-scale development of the platform together with partners and participants of the republic’s financial market.

  • The digital tenge is the third form of the national currency of Kazakhstan. The user will store the DT in the form of tokens in a digital wallet on a mobile device or other medium. Payments can be made even if there is no Internet access.
  • The National Bank of Kazakhstan has already clarified that DH will be universally accepted as a legal means of payment.
