Recently, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) banned Nigerian banks from dealing in all forms of cryptocurrencies; including bitcoin.
Why was Bitcoin banned?
The Central Bank of Nigeria cited ‘use of digital currency for laundering and terrorism‘ as the chief reason for banning cryptocurrencies. This comes shortly after several bulls run in the price of bitcoin, gaining over 300% price increase from 2020.
Starting earlier on the month of February 2021, Nigerian banks and other financial institutions were authorized by CBN to cease crypto transactions or face a penalty.
Away from the financial powerhouses, experts have analyzed how bitcoin ban in Nigeria would impact local traders.
The Nigerian cryptocurrency market
Looking back at statistics, Quartz Nigeria placed Nigeria as the second-largest bitcoin market in the world after the United States. Stears Businessreported in February 2021 that over $200 million worth of crypto is traded from Nigeria monthly. That’s a huge market to consider!
The bitcoin ban in Nigeria simply means that it would be difficult to directly convert the Naira to bitcoin, or trade bitcoin for items.
However, it does not stop at that.
The CBN regulation immediately affected many fintech establishments in Nigeria dealing with virtual accounts. Providus bank took a special hit, having to halt all virtual accounts following the order. VTpass had to temporarily deactivate all virtual accounts and recently reactivated all accounts with new virtual account numbers.
Conversations following the ban continue to float all over the internet. But what is the solution? What is the way forward for Nigerians looking to continue crypto trading amidst the ban?
Here’s our researched take:
Consider Peer-to-Peer Trading: Pending when the ban would be lifted, the most viable solution to buy crypto at the moment would be P2P trading. This is buying privately from a trusted source (a friend, a local agency, etc.) as trading involving bank transfers would be impossible.
Create a Domiciliary account: Well, since there are no restrictions on domiciliary accounts, you can open one, convert Naira and Dollars, and trade cryptos through that account.
Cryptocurrencies trading may have been banned in Nigeria, that doesn’t mean the digital currencies are done for. The future of cryptos for the African market remains bright against all odds.

While many would agree that the biggest reason for staying at a job is the financial incentive earned, others would disagree and throw in reasons like one’s passion, the pursuit of a new challenge, opportunities to learn, etc.
Nevertheless, most people would discover that money is still one of the biggest factors that determine the decision when a better job offer comes along.
It is not unreasonable to be money-driven however, there are other factors to consider and questions to ask before making a decision, including;
What do I want for my job, career, and life?
Most people make a huge mistake while quitting their job thinking they’ll just update their resume and start networking without being thoughtful about what their wants and how to get there.
For instance, studying to become a medical doctor maybe interesting but it will not help you achieve the flexible schedule you want. So also, if you’d like to make a career change, think about all the necessary steps. They may include more school, lower pay, or working your way up from the bottom–again.
What can you get from your current job?
If you love your current job and only have a problem with the payment, you may consider asking for a justifiable raise from your boss.
However, if your employer is unable to review your salary, you can negotiate for other incentives like flexible working hours, etc.
Also, outline your job description and compare it with the industry pay-scale to see if your current pay matches.
Do I have enough saved to cover nine to 12 months of expenses?
Financial planner, Susan Hirshman says a few years ago she told people to save enough for six months of expenses. Now she tells people they need nine to 12 months.
Hirshman suggests mapping out fixed expenses like credit cards, transportation, and food, as well as factoring in the “what if” costs.
Is the Time right?
The best factor to consider before quitting a job is the timing.
Consider if you have commitments that you have to fulfill. Are you’re in the middle of a busy season or working on a big project? You may want to honor those commitments so that your team isn’t left behind and you’re able to leave on good terms.
Also, it might be smart to wait a little longer if you’d like to receive your quarterly bonus, holiday vacation, and other bonuses.
Do I have the support of my family and friends?
Not many consider this factor but quitting your job affects the people in your life, so it’s important that you have an honest conversation with your family first. Your spouse or children may need to help or at least participate in some of your cost-cutting plans and need to be involved from the beginning.
Having a support system of friends or close colleagues who can help keep you on track while looking for a new job would be in your best interest.
Switching or quitting a job may sound fancy and look a lot more interesting than it actually is, which is why it is advisable to consider all factors before making a decision. If you are only interested in looking for simple ways to earn extra income, be sure to add VTpass partnership programs to your checklist.

If you got a penny, you do not bury it in the ground to gather dirt. You utilise it to gain more pennies. So yes, this is an anecdote that emphasizes the need to not just make money, but to use the money to create wealth. In essence, this underscores the importance of investments. So, you have been meaning to invest in some business or venture. But you do not know how to go about it. Or you are very sceptical about the success of the whole enterprise. Well, here are some few handy tips that will take you through how to make a wise investment. But first, you would want to learn how to make life more convenient for you through VTpass.
This is quite a good way to save time, energy and money. So go on and pay those pending bills by logging on to www.vtpass.com or downloading the VTpass app for Android.
So, moving on, here are useful tips to help your investment plans run smoothly.
LEARN YOUR TRADE
It is very common to see people who want to invest in one thing or another. But they don’t know a nickel about whatever it is they are investing in. They trust the judgement of other people. And they believe things will work well if they put in good money and hire great people. This isn’t how it should be. Whatever it is you are going into, you have to learn the trade. You necessarily don’t have to be a PRO in the field. But you need just enough to keep you above your game. This is especially for those who want to go into stocks or cryptocurrency, not knowing what it all about can wreck an investor.
DO NOT TWO-TIME
Another mistake people make is getting the feeling they can do so many things at the same time. As much as being a serial entrepreneur is possible, there is the need to centralize on just one thing. The other things you do should be able to adjust or evolve to that one cause you are out to accomplish. Let’s say, you want to start a restaurant. It wouldn’t make sense to still want to start up a website company at the same time. But then, starting with a restaurant, giving it all the attention it deserves and then expanding it to a hotel or supermarket is a reasonable sort of two-timing.
Following up on the last point, for your investment to be profitable, you need to see where you want your money to be even before it is there. You need to set goals. Your investment will become what you want it to be. So, dream big and work at it.
LEVERAGE ON FREE OPPORTUNITIES
Right in this world we are, there are very many opportunities out there. So your investment need not be your investment alone. You can go out there and act on leveraging the several opportunities available.
DON’T LISTEN TO GOSSIPS
Now, the news is different from gossips. You can get useful tips about your investments by putting your ears to the ground, and listen for real-time news. But do not, for once, pay attention to the gossips around. And don’t take any decision because everyone is taking it. Know what works for you and stick to it.
SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE
Those who try to be rich overnight make their money from investments. And then, they go on to lose it all in one quick swoop. This is what greed and impatience can do. So, rather than trying to gather your retirement money all at once. Why not take it one step at a time. The sweetest of gains is the one that was bitter in the making.
So, you should now be able to put things in perspective. After knowing what you want to invest in, learn it. Then work your way up your own way. Don’t be distracted by the things on the sidelines. Look out for important opportunities. Grab it and keep doing what you know how to do best.

And here are just the right ways to spend a day off
READ A BOOK
You know the whole talk about how great readers are leaders. Well, it is true. So, if you do have a day off, one effective way to spend it would be to read a book through and through and then go on to dream about it in your sleep. This makes you feel happy like you just did a very great thing.
2. GET A GOOD MASSAGE
Yes, most people don’t believe in the miracle powers of a spa. But if there is anyone true thing, it is that getting a massage from a spa or from a partner is way relaxing.
3. PLANT A TREE

4. GO SOMEWHERE

It feels good to look at a whole bunch of tasty food, and say “I cooked it”. So yes, cooking more than usual will not be a bad way to spend a day off. But make sure to have some evening get together so you don’t end up wasting your fine dishes.
Many thoughts swirling all over the head. You can write them down on your day off. It could be about your big dreams or your small cravings. Whatever it is, give immortality to it.
The most exciting way of spending a day off is doing something you could not do before. So, you want to learn to ride a bicycle or skate? Do it. Or you want to start a new course, a new language? Do it.
At VTpass, we believe that what is worth doing is worth doing well. This is why we work hard at making our payment platform accessible, convenient and fast. Why not log on to www.vtpass.com or download the VTpass app to make payment for your airtime, data, electricity bills and TV subscription? And you are sure to see us for what we are: the one-stop online payment platform.
Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people- Steve Jobs.
It is a well-known fact that the main aim of dabbling in a business of your own or someone else’s is to make money. Indeed, making a profit is the drive behind every business. And this aim controls both the operations and principles of every organisation. In so much that entrepreneurs and employees employ various strategies just to get customers’ attention. However, in trying to sell products or services to customers, we mostly end up pushing them away. So, many organisations out there with the drive to make the most do not, in fact, draw the attention of the targets. The question is why is this so? Why do businesses with potentials suffer when they could as well thrive? Well, going through the success stories of various successful people brings the answer to fore. And the answer has to do with relationships, the community.
Before we go any further, it would be good to look into one successful uprising company. And that’s VTpass. VTpass is an online payment platform that allows for ease and speed while paying everyday bills. So, rather than change locations trying to pay electricity bills or tv subscriptions. You can easily pay these bills on www.vtpass.com. Again, you can renew your data subscription as well as buy airtime on www.vtpass.com. Better still, the new VTpass mobile app for Android serves this purpose well enough. You even get more ease and convenience with its more user-friendly, accessible features.
People are the core of every business. Businesses are based on relationships and relationships on people. I would go to an average restaurant run by amazing people over an outstanding restaurant run by awful people- Marcus Lemonis.
More than profit-making, what defines us at VTpass is our strong drive to build and maintain relationships with our customers. It is not enough to want our customers’ attention without giving them as much attention. So, as a brand, we believe in putting ourselves in a position that strengthens our relationships. This is because we believe that what stands any business out is the ability to start for the money and stay for the community.
And really, this should be a viable model for as many as own good businesses out there. It is quite tempting to want to keep pushing for the money. But looking beyond that and working with your customers to be better edges you more towards profit. So, it works this way. You have a very great idea. Of course, you want to get it out there and make money out of it. Good thing. But you should be ready to build a relationship with your customers and get them to like you as much as they like your business. And yes, when the profit seems to be hanging in the air, this is not a time to pull back engagement. Rather, you should make your involvement stronger. You should stay, and this will definitely get the attention of many. So yes, starting a business with profit in mind is a good thing. But continuing a business for the sake of becoming better for your customers and being their lifelong friend is the best.
Profit in business comes from repeat customers. Customers that boast about your project or service. And that bring friends with them- Edward Demming.
In all considerations, Monday signals a great day, a day when employees and employers alike can start work afresh. After a restful weekend, most people get the chance to start the week on a very high note. This makes Mondays one of the most productive days of the week. But as wonderful as Monday may be, nothing stops the drudge of the slow and steady weekend from creeping into a boisterous Monday. Often times, most people are usually anxious about the week. They cannot seem to keep their eyes open while working. And if they can manage from keeping drowsy, they are most times finding it difficult to perform tasks. This is the Monday Blues. So, how can you manage to beat the Monday Blues and stay ahead of your everyday work life?
First off, have you heard of the one online platform where you get to make payments for your everyday bills the easy way? On this platform, you can settle your MTN, GLO, AIRTEL, 9MOBILE airtime and data recharges. You can also pay your electricity bills as well as your Dstv, GOtv and Startimes subscriptions. Inevitably, what this does is reduce your workload every day as well as take away the drudge on a Monday morning. VTpass is this online platform and just by logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can get the opportunity to control your bill payments, movements and work life. But then, there is still the Monday blues to deal with. How do you work your way around that?
Here are ten ways to do just that.
Let the weekend be your weekend
That the week stops on a Friday is a widely conventional phenomenon. Everybody knows that. But for some people, it just doesn’t work that way. The weekend is just as good for work as the week. During the weekend, they go on to open office emails, work late nights and they do not move an inch from their work devices. Eventually, when Monday comes, they can’t help but feel they was no weekend, to start with. And because of this, they end up dreading Mondays and getting tired during the week.
Get excited about Monday on Sunday
There is a way Sunday dampens your interest for Monday. You are nearly used to staying at home half naked, crossing your legs and watching the TV. Or maybe you are the outgoing type always finding a new place to visit on Sundays. Now, quitting all that to sit at an office on Monday or going back to your personal duty can be very heartbreaking. So, the best bet out of this is to start getting really enthusiastic about Monday on Sunday. You can think of those things you love to do at work. You can make a call to one of your colleagues and talk about the exciting thing Monday holds. In essence, something about work should excite you enough to get you ready for Monday.
Monday blues are usually consequences of your weekend hangovers. You can’t expect to have less sleep and do more work. What you need to do is change this lifestyle and start getting enough sleep.
Really, when you are in your best dress on Monday, feeling like you are on top of the world, no amount of Monday blues is enough to get you down. So you want to be good on Monday, then feel good first.
Be the best buddy of all
You want to make your Monday turn out great, then you have to make other people’s Mondays work out well too. When you get to work, be sure to put a smile on other people’s face. It will do a lot to brighten up your own day.
Ok, taken, Mondays are usually busy days. But is there no way you can keep your Monday light? Completing your tasks quickly will help make you feel great. And great is how you need to feel for the rest of the week.
Make After-work Fun
Really, Monday has been so made into a work thing that we forget that apart from 9-5, there are still other hours in the day. The thing is when we do realise that there is more to Monday than 9-5, we begin to want to make our 9-5 count. So, begin to make plans for after work on Monday. Visit a friend, have a nice church gathering. Go out to some quiet place and have yourself a nice meal with someone you love.
If it persists, ask yourself what you need to do about it
Now, for some, their Monday blues is a persistent thing. It happens virtually everytime. This is the point where you need to ask yourself what you need to do to make your Mondays better.
This is quite an important information for all the terminal agents. These are those who through the stable of VTpass resell services such as airtime, data, electricity bills and tv subscriptions. First off, we would like to sincerely appreciate you for signing off on a partnership with us. You have become a vital part of our organization and you hold the reins of its success just as much as we do. It is with this in mind that we have decided to acquaint you with the little adjustment in payment method.
Rather than pay online through your card, you are now required to credit your wallet through our bank account to avoid the levied processing fee. Hence, in pre-funding your wallet, you are to deposit or transfer fundsinto the bank account given below. Consequently, beginning from this moment, any attempt to fund your wallet via the online platform will attract a 1.5% card processing fee which will be at your own expense.
This slight adjustment is bound to be of mutual benefit as it will halt the recurrent percentile losses we make on all payments done through your card online, just as it will help ensure your commission.
Below are the details of the account with which you are required to now perform all financial transactions:
