eNaira: How To Make Money Enter Your Wallet

The eNaira is the first of its kind in Africa – created and regulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria. The digital currency which was to be launched October 1 but rescheduled to 25th October, went live yesterday October 26 and is available for download on iOS and Android mobile devices.

The novel CBDC functions as a legal tender and a store of value and was created to provide users with quick, easy and secure transactional options.
Users can make peer to peer payments with the eNaira app by scanning a QR code.

The eNaira has both the user and merchant app available for android and iOS devices. The eNaira user wallet called the “eNaira Speed Wallet” said to be a fast and convenient way to conduct financial transaction, has nearly 50,000 installs on Playstore since going live.

The eNaira requires BVN and a valid email address associated with your BVN for verification.

1. What this means is that users that registered for BVN without an email address will have to go to their local banks to update their BVN with an email address before they can use the eNaira app.

2. Also unlike the standard digital currencies, the eNaira does not yield any interest

What you should know!

There are two versions of the eNaira wallet.

One for businesses and the other for individuals or customers of businesses – simply put.

Whether your business is remote, online, or in-person, the merchant wallet offers a convenient way to receive money. Users can easily scan their merchant QR code to pay you. The merchant app has over 5000 installs

What existing challenge does the Enaira solve?

What makes eNaira different from the likes of Opay, Konga Wallet…etc? The eNaira is owned by Federal Government of Nigeria and the other types of wallets are privately owned. Basically no difference.

To sign up as a merchant on the eNaira, you must have the following at hand:

1. Tax identification number
2. Bank account number
3. Valid email address
4. Phone number

This article will be updated from time to time to reflect changes and upgrades of the eNaira app.
