eNaira Speed Wallet

eNaira Nigeria’s Official Digital Currency backed by the Naira

eNaira is more or less like a digital version of the physical Naira.

The eNaira was launched by Nigeria's former President flanked by the then VP and CBN Governor on October 25, 2021 and circulates in parallel with the physical Naira as legal tender in Nigeria. 500 million units of the eNaira were issued at launch. The new digital currency is built on a Distributed Ledger Technology and is aimed amongst other things to improve financial...

Introducing the New UBA Mobile App

Every bank has a banking app now but unfortunately not all understand what their customers need. UBA has continued to innovate its digital platforms, seeing as it was the first bank in Nigeria to introduce artificial intelligence (AI) into its banking services. As recent as the mid-2020, there was an upgrade of their mobile banking app and early this year the bank released a new app with even more advanced features.

You must have heard about the cashless policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN by now. Well, if you have not, it is a policy aimed at reducing the volume of physical cash circulating in the Nigerian economy and encouraging e-payment options.
