The dollar is no longer pegged to gold, but it is still the world's reserve currency. Over 60% of the foreign bank reserves are currently held in US Dollars.
There have been efforts by numerous countries (led by China and Russia) to dethrone the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency. China has been reducing its exposure to the Dollar for a long time, and both China, as well as Russia, have been stocking up on gold in recent times.
Central banks added 650 tons to their reserves in 2019, the second highest shift in 50 years, after the 656 tons added in 2018. Before the 2007-09 financial crisis, central banks were net sellers of gold worldwide for decades. Leading the recent spree has been China, Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
China can escape the fate of a dollar collapse by tying the yuan to gold. There is little doubt she has access to sufficient gold. Currently, her interest is to preserve the dollar, not destroy it, because it is the principal means of Chinese foreign interests being secured.

The collapse of fiat currencies will demolish the state theory of money, and not for the first time. Irrespective of how long it takes, the rapid loss of fiat currencies purchasing power means that governments will no longer be able to finance their obligations. There will, therefore, come a point where fiat money must be abandoned in the search for monetary stability. The demise of fiat is the demise of state money and the function of its replacement will be to restore public trust.
The replacement money can only be based on something in governments possession. And either in their treasury departments or central banks, other than each others fiat they only possess gold in their monetary reserves.

The Comex vaults have been steadily depleted over the last several months, however, 1.6M ounces of gold just showed up since March 1.
This is the largest inflow since October 2020 and we are only halfway through March!
This may be simply a restock of the metal lost in Jan and Feb.
It's also possible this is being used to support the massive delivery volume being seen in the historically quiet month of March.
But a third possibility is that the banks are preparing for massive delivery volume in April.
Quantum Information Science (QIS) emerges from a deeper consideration of how quantum physics (our description of the world at the microscopic level) has implications for information science.
