All you Need to Know About the eNaira



The eNaira has been making waves since its emergence, with widespread sensitization and awareness campaigns. As an avid reader of this site, you may have come across my previous posts and reports on the eNaira. Having closely followed the eNaira trend during my time as a reporter and correspondent for Business Post Nigeria, I diligently covered its developments and shared timely updates.

However, despite the extensive awareness efforts, the eNaira's acceptance remains a topic of discussion. Recently, official bodies have highlighted the challenges surrounding its adoption. This revelation prompted me to gauge the level of awareness among individuals in my immediate circle, only to discover a significant lack of knowledge about the eNaira. Motivated by my past experiences as a correspondent and the inherent excitement that comes with it, I felt compelled to write this post.

In this article, we will delve into the essence of the eNaira, providing a comprehensive understanding of this pioneering digital currency.

Understanding the eNaira:

The eNaira represents Nigeria's foray into the realm of digital currency, revolutionizing the country's financial landscape. It is a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) designed to function as legal tender, offering a secure and convenient means of conducting transactions.

Let me break this down. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) introduced the eNaira on October 25, 2021, as a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) aimed at revolutionizing financial transactions in the country. 

This digital form of the Naira offers a secure and convenient means of conducting transactions, set to provide individuals and businesses with easier access to capital and financial services. 

How eNaira was built

According to the CBN, from conception, the e-Naira has followed a careful thought and implementation process, beginning with understanding current realities in Nigeria’s evolving payment landscape, working with clear objectives and principles built from those realities, meticulously laying out the aspects of the architecture and infrastructure and keeping note of real-time risk management protocols.

Issues regarding cashless policy, National Financial Inclusion Strategy, Bank Verification Number, Shared Agent Network Expansion Facility, License categorization for the Payment System and Establishment of NIBSS Payment Infrastructure, were all put into consideration.

What is the Benefit of eNaria 

Stated by the CBN, the e-Naira is expected to foster economic growth by offering easier access to capital and financial services which will increase economic activities at low/no interest transaction rates.

It is also expected to provide secure and cheaper diaspora remittance options and make such transactions faster.

Due to its traceability, e-Naira makes it more difficult for individuals or organizations to indulge in fraud.

While the impossibility of being forged, makes it very strong and reliable, the e-Naira provides financial inclusion by making financial services available to communities without enough banking opportunities.

Local and international trade are expected to be increased with the emergence of e-Naira, and the nation’s digital currency is expected to aid revenue collection by reducing the cost of handling cash.

Other Benefits 

With the e-Naira, diaspora payments are also expected to become cheaper and safer to ensure individuals get more value for every Naira they earn.

As regards local payments, people can boycott the queues and pay taxes, and bills from the comfort of their homes in an easier and dependable fashion.

Also with the e-Naira, the CBN assures that financial government aid will get straight to the people, as it knocks the middlemen out of the way and individuals can claim funds directly.
An extra benefit attached is the secure banking which the e-Naira promises.

Those worried about the safety and security of banking details can be rest assured that the transparency makes everything traceable.

Beyond faster and better transactions, the CBN promises that the eNaira makes it possible to send funds, save money, and save time while at it.

How I Have Benefited

Mxm...It's sad to say I am still amog those who haven't used the potential of the eNaria, but I still have it incorporated as a payment options on this site. And yes you can buy me a coffee and Donations and can be made with the eNaira.
