China's yuan has joined the ranks of the most traded currencies for the first time, underlining the growing might of the country's economy, the world's second-largest.

The yuan became one of the top 10 traded currencies in 2013, rising to No. 9 on the list due to a "significant expansion" in offshore trading, the Bank for International Settlements said in a report Thursday. It's a sharp jump from the bank's last survey in 2010, when the yuan, known in China as the renminbi or "people's money," was No. 17 on the list.

Turnover in trades involving yuan surged to $120 billion a day on average in April 2013, three and half times more than the $34 billion US in 2010. Still, that figure is dwarfed by the U.S. dollar, which accounted for about $4.7 trillion daily.

In Some Trade, China Currency Replacing Dollar

The almighty dollar is still almighty, but it’s getting almighty-less. And part of that, at least in Asia, is due to the growth of the Chinese yuan in trade settlements.

As Beijing opens that currency up to the market, the yuan is fast becoming a trade currency between China and Australia, as well as Taiwan, Singapore and in use of offshore yuan deposits held in London. The yuan is coming into its own, slowly, and that will inevitably take some demand from the dollar in Asia.
