How To Fund Your E-Naira Wallet / How To Buy E-Naira

How to fund your E-Naira Wallet / how to buy E-Naira: In a similar fashion to other digital currencies, the E-Naira is stored in a digital wallet, as opposed to Fiat (Currency Note or coins) which are held physically.

There may be a similarity in the digital wallet system, however, the similarities aren’t thorough. As at the time this article was written, the E-Naira could only be stored on its proprietary wallet and also didn’t have the same wallet address system as seen with other similar government-owned coins like the USDT which is basically the American dollar in digital form.

It’s a new provision and as such, the potential holders would have to go through stream details to get acquainted and this article just happens to be one of such. Without further ado, let’s jump right into what’s needed.

A Couple of Things To Note
