There is only one currency inside the mainland. RMB, REMINBI, YUAN, KUAI; these are all basically the same thing. ¥ or 元
When written in English they tend to use RMB
Reminbi is formal, like you would never say, “I have 100 dollars of united states currency”, so not used in spoken language.
Kuai is like slang and it actually spoken for smaller amounts of money
Yuan would be used the most when speaking. To read “Yuan” it sounds close to “You” + “N”
