BITCOIN Rave: CBN Governor Gives Stern Warning To Nigerians

Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has said investing in virtual currencies such as bitcoin, is a “risk that cannot be supported” by the apex bank.
Emefiele stated this in an interview with reporters in Abuja.

He highlighted the “dangers” in bitcoin trading, saying he had commissioned the bank to carry out research into the market to understand underlying issues.

“Cryptocurrency or bitcoin is like a gamble, and there is a need for everybody to be very careful.

“We cannot as a central bank give support to situations where people risk savings to gamble.

“I have asked my colleagues in the research and monetary-policy department to study the market and get to know what the issues are.

“The central bank may in future make some very concrete pronouncements as to the direction,” Emefiele said.
