Monday marked the official debut of the Central Bank of Nigeria’ s Central Bank Digital Currency, which will be known as the eNaira. The debut of the eNaira was originally set for October 1, 2021, however it was postponed due to a backlog of operations associated with Nigeria’ s 61st anniversary festivities.

The Digital Currency is supported by two applications: the eNaira speed wallet and the eNaira merchant wallet, both of which were released on Monday on the Google Playstore and the Apple Store.

According to a statement on the eNaira website, the currency’ s overall role and importance to Nigeria’ s economy, particularly small enterprises, are explained. ” eNaira is a digital currency issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria that provides a one- of- a- kind type of money denominated in the Naira, ” according to the announcement.

” When compared to cash payments, the eNaira acts as both a means of exchange and a store of value, providing superior payment prospects in retail transactions. ” Government of CBN, Godwin Emefiele, has announced that 33 Nigerian banks have joined the eNaira platform, and that the apex bank has produced N500 million worth of digital money as part of the initiative.

Emefiele made the remarks at a ceremony to mark the launch of Nigeria’ s Central Bank Digital Currency, which took place on Monday at the presidential villa. He also noted that the platform has seen an increase in users.

It is plainly stated in the slogan that ” the electronic Naira is the same Naira with many more possibilities. ” It is legal tender in Nigeria and is a liability of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), just as is the actual Naira. ” The eNaira and the Naira will always have the same value and will always be exchanged at a rate of one naira to one eNaira, ” he continued, adding that the value of the eNaira and the Naira will be the same.

” There will be strict adherence to Anti- money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism standards in order to preserve the integrity and stability of Nigeria’ s payment system, ” Emefiele stated, referring to the fact that the eNaira platform has received more than 2. 5 million daily visits since it went live in January.
