eNaira Website is Live!

So CBN is really serious about this eNaira? Nawaoooo….So after stopping banks from supporting cryptocurrency transactions, the apex bank still went ahead to launch crypto that it will regulate just like it is doing with the forex. Let’s hope it would blame crypto exchanges if the eNaira crashes. Mtchew!!!

Anyways, we just want to report to you that the eNaira website is live and it is good to go on October 1st (Nigeria’s independence day) when it would be launched. Let’s see if Nigerians would adopt the Central Bank Digital Currency considering the fact that it yields no interest.

Interestingly, the website has revealed more details about the eNaira including features, benefits, how to download and more.
