Nigerian Central Bank Threats Force Parallel Exchange Rate Tracker to Suspend Service


Recommended Posts

Following threats from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the management of Abokifx, a website that tracks the Nigerian currency’s black market exchange rates, has announced the suspension of their daily updates. This suspension will remain in effect until Abokifx gets “better clarity of the situation,” management said on September 17, 2021.

Tracking of Parallel Market Rates ‘Undermining’ Nigerian Economy

Abokifx’s decision came shortly after the end of the CBN’s monetary policy committee meeting on the same day. In his remarks to journalists following the meeting, governor Godwin Emefiele accused the publisher of the tracking site, Oniwinde Adedotun, of carrying out an “illegal activity that undermines the economy.”

In addition, Emefiele suggested that the CBN was now tracking down Adedotun whom it accuses of “publishing arbitrary rates without contacting Bureaux de Change.”

However, in its own statement, Abokifx rejects the allegations the site is orchestrating the naira’s fall on the parallel market. The statement explains that Abokifx, which was established in 2014, is doing what it was set up to do — conducting market research and gathering data on the parallel market rates.

In a direct response to Emefiele’s allegations, Abokifx also denies that some of its personnel are fueling the naira’s freefall. The statement explained:

Abokifx purely provides benchmark parallel rate information which helps guide users in almost 200 countries across the world. Abokifx does not trade forex, which we have always maintained in our emails and social media platforms.

Abokifx Accounts Not Yet Closed

Furthermore, Abokifx insists in the statement that it neither trades forex nor has the power to manipulate rates. Instead, the rate tracking site only publishes what it sources on the streets of Lagos and according to what was gathered on September 17, the naira had plunged to a new low of N570 versus one U.S. dollar.

Abokifx claims that “outside the media allegation,” it has not received “any communication from any government body and our accounts are not closed as stipulated in the media.” It is unclear whether the CBN actually plans to apprehend Adedotun who is believed to be in the United Kingdom.

Bitcoin.com Doubles Down on Non-Custodial Model

Bitcoin.com, in line with its vision to support ‘economic freedom,’ is refocusing its efforts on non-custodial, or ‘self hosted,’ crypto products, including exchange. Therefore, the Bitcoin.com Wallet, which is fully non-custodial and provides users with direct access to public blockchains like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum will be the company’s flagship product going forward.

What’s the non-custodial model?

When you take possession of your assets, it means there’s no need to request approval from a middleman to send or receive your money, and no need to rely on third parties to hold your assets on your behalf.

You also have full control over the fees you pay to miners and validators when sending crypto or interacting with smart contracts – and you are able to interact with smart contracts! That means (in the very near future via Bitcoin.com) you’ll have access to, for example, decentralized finance applications that enable you to earn passive income.

What is ‘economic freedom?’

Bitcoin.com defines economic freedom as the ability for individuals to freely acquire and use personal resources however they choose, both independently and in cooperation with others. We assert that it is a vital component of human dignity and a fundamental human right.

How can I take control of my crypto?

If you don’t already have the Bitcoin.com Wallet app, the first step is to install it on your mobile device. Then, it’s a simple matter of sending your cryptoassets from the centralized exchange to your self-hosted (non-custodial) wallets. Since you – and only you – will be in control, it’s essential that you back up your wallets and keep on top of password-management best practices.

Swapping, the non-custodial way

The Bitcoin.com Wallet empowers anyone in the world to connect to a range of swap providers and decentralized exchanges. To swap, for example, BTC > ETH, you just tap the swap button and follow the simple instructions. Behind the scenes, your cryptoassets will change hands on public blockchains and you’ll end up holding the swapped funds in your wallet.

Can I use the Bitcoin.com Wallet on desktop?

Yes. The Bitcoin.com Wallet is a multi-platform application available on iOS, Android, and via web browsers at app.bitcoin.com. You’ll just need to have the Bitcoin.com Wallet installed on your device and an account created. Then, go to app.bitcoin.com, sign in via Google or Apple, and your wallets will be automatically synced across devices.

What’s happening to Bitcoin.com’s custodial exchange?

Bitcoin.com Exchange has for years provided an important custodial trading experience – and the company recognizes that custodial exchange services continue to play an important role in the crypto economy. For now, however, Bitcoin is focusing on development of the Bitcoin.com Wallet, which enables users to take control of their funds while unlocking powerful new ways to use their cryptoassets.
