The eNaira speed wallet application is down 48 hours after the digital currency was launched on Monday, checks by The Nation have shown.
A Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) source however said the application was upgraded due to the huge traffic it has attracted. Google, the source said, brought down the old eNaira app before the CBN could upload the new one.”The CBN assured that the new app will be up and running very soon on Google Playstore. What happened was a technical glitch. The eNaira app is still running on iOS,” the source said.
eNaira is a digital currency issued by the CBN. It’s a digital form of the naira that is housed in a secured wallet called the eNaira wallet.
The digital currency has two applications — eNaira speed wallet and eNaira merchant wallet.
To access the eNaira, users have to download the ‘speed wallet’, which allows users to conduct transactions with speed and ease.
Aside from the Google Store, the wallet can also be downloaded from the Apple Store.
