CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) is reporting more that half a billion Naira in monthly mobile money transactions and they have now stopped regulating merchant service charges on local cards which bodes well for a free and competitive digital economy.  

Digital business and eCommerce platforms like Uber and AirBnb and Kickstarter are making inroads into the market.  Smartphone and Android penetration is increasing connectivity and expanding the range of possibilities to trade via mobile phone.  Mobile phones are already the de facto way of searching and buying products and services online in Nigeria.
