The Central Bank of Nigeria has revealed the official wallet for its digital currency, e-Naira, the Speed Wallet.
The Speed Wallet according to the Central Bank is to enable the Central Bank to meet it’s October 1st timeline.
The wallet will not serve as a competition to existing banks but serve as a means to transact value, pending when banks and other innovators can provide their own wallets.
Transaction Limits & KYC on the Speed Wallet
The Speed wallet has three tiers. The first tier allows users with no bank account to use the Speed Wallet. However users will have to submit a passport photograph, name, place & date of birth, gender, address and phone number.
With a daily limit of N50,000, for Send & Receive, the minimum requirement for using the Wallet at this level is telephone number which will be validated as a National Identity Number (NIN). Cumulative Balance Daily is fixed at N300,000.
Tier Two wallet users must own an account with an existing bank. Users at this level can only send and receive N200,000 daily with a Cumulative Balance Daily of N500,000. Minimum requirement for this level is the Bank Verification Number (BVN).

Minimum requirements is the KYC requirement stipulated by the CBN AML/CFT Regulations.
Cost of Using The Speed Wallet
The Central Bank has revealed that both the Merchants and Customer wallet users will not be charged for using the wallet.
However, there were two question mark responses to two cost questions which are Transfer from Wallet to Bank Account and Cash withdrawal at Agent/Merchant location. It’s unclear why these two cost centers weren’t explicitly stated.
The e-Naira has been declared a National Critical Infrastructure and will be available to Corporate accounts.

I CIRCLED (CBDC)
NOW HERE IS MY FINDINGS
- What Is a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC)?
A central bank digital currency (CBDC) uses an electronic record or digital token to represent the virtual form of a fiat currency of a particular nation (or region).
A CBDC is centralized; it is issued and regulated by the competent monetary authority of the country.
- KEY TAKEAWAYS
A central bank digital currency (CBDC) utilizes technology to represent a country’s official currency in digital form.
Unlike decentralized cryptocurrency projects like Bitcoin, a CBDC would be centralized and regulated by a country’s monetary authority.
While several governments are looking into the viability of creating and issuing CBDCs, no country has officially launched such money.
