The recently launched eNaira is gaining acceptance as it has so far recorded over 488,000 downloads from over 160 countries.

The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, which disclosed this on Friday, November 12, 2021, described the appetite for the eNaira as excellent; going by the numbers being recorded.

The Bank said, “So far, we have onboarded over 488,000 consumer wallets and about 78,000 merchant wallets; with these downloads occurring in over 160 countries (per Google Playstore and Apple Store data).

“We have also recorded almost 17,000 transactions amounting to over N62m with the average transaction being about $9.3 each.

These numbers suggest the adoption rate has been excellent.”

The CBN therefore asked Nigerians to embrace the eNaira because it is more reliable than cryptocurrencies.
