Nigeria’s eNaira platform has gone live and received over a million hits in less than 24 hours of its launch.
The official website of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN), eNaira, has gone live, exactly one week to the launch of the initiative.
The eNaira is a digital currency that will be issued by the apex bank.
The website already recorded over a million hits barely 24 hours after going live.
This has shown a reflection of the level of interest in the proposed digital currency.
The website’s simplified financial transactions: sending money to one another using a linked bank account or credit card; ability to transfer money from their bank account to their eNaira wallet with ease; ability to monitor their eNaira wallet, check balances, and view transaction history; and ability to make in-store payments using their eNaira wallet by scanning QR codes.
Customers will also be allowed to scan the QR Code on the website to get started.
Recently, the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele while speaking at a gathering of foreign investors in New York said the October 1 launch date will likely be rescheduled due to activities surrounding the country’s Independence Day celebration. Emefiele said the launch would be held on October 4, 2021.
