In its 2022 report, chain analysis revealed that Nigeria’s adoption rate increased, placing the country first in Africa and eleventh globally. In an interview with The Punch, Ibrahim maintained that Nigeria must embrace global economic innovation.

Like I said earlier during the second reading, we need an efficient and vibrant capital market in Nigeria. For us to do that, we have to be up to date global practices. In recent time, there are a lot of changes within the capital market, especially with the introduction of digital currencies, commodity exchanges and so many other things that are essential, that need to be captured in the new Act” Ibrahim stated.

The proposed legislation will be a key impetus for the adoption of cryptocurrencies in Africa’s most populous nation, since it would officially address the increasing usage of bitcoin in the country.JAMB Result
