Here are the guidelines from the Central Bank of Nigeria about the charges on eNaira platform.
The eNaira platform is newly launched, actually we’ve been informed about the coming of the Nigerian digital currency called “e-Naira”, which was launched on October 25, 2021.
In case you don’t know, some people already asking what’s the full meaning of eNaira or e-Naira, the “e” simply means “Electronic”, which makes it “Electronic Naira”. It’s a digital currency that’s why it’s electronic.
Some Nigerian thought that the eNaira is a cryptocurrency, which is NO. The eNaira is not a cryptocurrency, it’s still the same naira but in digital form.
Nothing like airdrop or earning from eNaira, it’s same naira but different because it’s a digital currency created by the Nigerian government.
