Developed by a consortium of Nigerian banks, fintechs, and blockchain businesses, cNGN will adhere to regulatory guidelines and be owned by Nigerian banks, functioning as a legal form of currency.

Unlike previous stablecoin iterations, cNGN will be a cryptocurrency rather than digital money. The debut is anticipated to take place in 2024, as reported by Forbes.
