EFCC Battles Black Market To Boost Naira, Local Currency Gains N60 To $1 Within A Week

Published

on

After plummeting to an all-time low of N710.00 the value of the local currency in Nigeria increased dramatically this week when compared to the US dollar on the P2P market on a week-to-week basis.

After the nation’s anti-graft agents raided currency operators in Lagos and Abuja, the naira recovered from a record low against the dollar on the black market, which strengthened it to N650 per dollar on Friday, thus keeping the naira up by N60 to a dollar in the last 7 days.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) reportedly searched bureau de change operators and questioned them about their operations while the anti-graft agents snapped photos of currency dealers and made copies of their identification cards.

The EFCC also threatened to detain Nigerians who are keeping large amounts of dollars and other foreign currencies in reserves. In a meeting with representatives of Bureau De Change operators on Friday in the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja, Abdulrasheed Bawa, the chairman of the anti-graft agency, announced this.

Bawa stated that the EFCC had intelligence connecting some people and organizations to the hoarding of foreign currencies, especially the United States dollars, in commercial cities all over the country, and warned those involved to stop or risk arrest as a major offensive against the speculators was underway.

Naira falls big at the black market (See exchange rate)

Published

on

By

The exchange rate between the naira and the US dollar has fallen further to a record low on the black market, trading at a minimum of N740/$1 on Tuesday morning.

This is according to information from black market operatives interviewed by Nairametrics.

According to FX traders, the fallen currency can be attributed to the continuous scarcity of forex and increased demand in the market. In a discussion with Mr. Saheed, an FX trader around the Lagos International Airport, he stated that they sell dollars for an average of N740/$1 and buy for a maximum of N730/$1.

He also added that it sold for as high as N745/$1 yesterday, Monday, and has just moderated. He explained that the rising demand and continuous liquidity crunch continue to drive the exchange rate upward in the unofficial market, considering the price is determined by demand and supply.

The exchange rate has maintained a downward trend, following the move by the apex bank to raise the interest rate to a 20-year high of 15.5%, representing 150 basis points increase from the 14% stated at the previous MPC meeting.

This was approved at the Bank’s Extra-Ordinary General Meeting (EGM) which held at Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos on Thursday, 29 September 2022.

Why Kim Kardashian is paying U.S SEC $1.26 million fine over crypto promotion

Published

on

By

In order to resolve the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s claims that she promoted a cryptocurrency on Instagram without revealing that she had been paid $250,000 to do so, Kim Kardashian has agreed to pay $1.26 million. The American socialite and businesswoman consented to assist the SEC’s continuing investigation, the agency announced on Monday.

According to the SEC, Kardashian did not disclose that she received payment to post on her Instagram account promoting EMAX tokens, EthereumMax-offered digital asset security.

In Kardashian’s Instagram post, she included a link to the EthereumMax website, where users could find instructions on how to buy EMAX coins.

Gurbir Grewal, director of the SEC’s division of enforcement, stated in a prepared statement that “the federal securities laws are clear that any celebrity or other individual who promotes a crypto asset security must disclose the nature, source, and amount of compensation they received in exchange for the promotion.”

Kardashian has consented to refrain from endorsing any cryptocurrency-related securities for three years.

“Ms. Kardashian is pleased to have resolved this matter with the SEC. Kardashian fully cooperated with the SEC from the very beginning and she remains willing to do whatever she can to assist the SEC in this matter. She wanted to get this matter behind her to avoid a protracted dispute. The agreement she reached with the SEC allows her to do that so that she can move forward with her many different business pursuits,” a lawyer for Kardashian said in an email.

Kim Kardashian is well-known for reality TV, she is also a successful entrepreneur. Currently, she may be seen on “The Kardashians” on Hulu. Her companies include SKIMS, which sells loungewear, shapewear, and other goods, and SKKN, a skincare line.

For anyone trying to promote a product, Kardashian provides a massive megaphone with 330 million followers on Instagram. With a net worth of $1.8 billion dollars, the fine may not affect her a lot.

Kim Kardashian is hardly the first famous person to draw authorities’ notice due to their participation in cryptocurrencies. In 2018, the agency reached a resolution with Floyd Mayweather Jr., a professional boxer, and DJ Khaled, a music producer, for failing to declare the money they received for advocating cryptocurrency investments.

The US Congress is paying more and more attention to cryptocurrency. Following dramatic fluctuations in cryptocurrency prices, dozens of frauds, and hundreds of billions of dollars won and lost, a bipartisan proposal last month would transfer the Commodities Futures Trading Commission’s regulatory authority over Bitcoin and Ether, two well-known cryptocurrencies.

Investors in cryptocurrencies have seen prices collapse this year, businesses collapse, and fortunes and employment vanish overnight. Some organisations have even been charged by federal officials with operating an unauthorised securities exchange.
