Nigeria’s Central Bank Digital Currency eNaira Goes Live

The official unveiling of the eNaira, Nigeria’s central bank digital currency (CBDC), happened Monday. It is designed to complement the country's physical currency, not replace it, according to an official announcement. This comes as Nigeria banned crypto transactions within its banking sector in February. "The Hash" panel discusses the latest digital payments momentum from Nigeria signaling further control of the money supply, and the wider outlook for CBDCs at large.
