The eNaira website of the Central Bank of Nigeria has gone live ahead of its official debut on October 1.

“eNaira is a CB-issued digital currency that provides a unique form of money denominated in Naira,” according to the website www.enaira.com.

According to the CBN, eNaira would function as both a medium of exchange and a store of value, with better payment prospects in retail transactions than cash.

It went on to say that the eNaira had a unique operational structure that was both unique and unlike any other type of central bank money.

“In Nigeria, there are various benefits from a central bank-issued digital money, and these benefits cut across all sectors of the economy and concerns,” it noted.

The eNaira app, according to the CBN, would showcase and represent brand values focusing on ease of use and efficiency while maintaining security.

It claimed, “We designed this App with a deeper understanding of clients, what they value, their strengths, and their constraints.”
