The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has activated the e-naira portal ahead of the official launch of the digital currency on October 1.
Although the platform has been activated, no transactions have been allowed on it for now.
The digital currency website, www e-naira.com was activated by the CBN on Monday.
The CBN’s Director of Corporate Communications, Mr Osita Nwanisobi, confirmed the development to correspondents.
He also confirmed that, although the platform has gone live, no transactions are permitted on it until the official launch on October 1, 2021.
Already, the site has recorded over one million hits.
A cursory look at the website by our correspondent shows that only information on the workability of the e-naira platform is on the website.
However, visitors are told to download the app on the app stores on Android and iOS.
