Binance’s Decision to Stop All Services Involving the Nigerian Currency

This development comes on the heels of Binance’s decision to halt all services involving the Nigerian currency, signaling a shifting landscape in the fintech sector. As for the eNaira itself, the digital currency was introduced in October 2021; however, its adoption has been relatively sluggish.

The Challenges Faced by eNaira in Terms Of Adoption

In 2023, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) published a research paper shedding light on the challenges faced by eNaira in terms of adoption, indicating less-than-encouraging figures.

In response, the Nigerian government has taken proactive measures to promote the use of eNaira, including advocating for its utilization in salary payments and school fees transactions. These efforts underscore the government’s commitment to driving widespread adoption of the digital currency and realizing its potential benefits for the Nigerian economy.
