The NairaX project represents an innovative solution to two perplexing problems in the global e-commerce space: transaction costs and volatility. Global e-commerce platforms have essentially created a “re-sale niche” which privileges extensive supply networks that deliver goods through various mediums to the final consumer. This highly inefficient and expensive model has led to narrowing profit-margins and increased cost for both SMEs and consumers. The NairaX project offers a unique solution to this problem with an e-commerce model which leverages blockchain technology to significantly reduce arbitrage across various markets.

The volatility problem is a particularly sensitive one for SMEs which rely on stable forex markets for exchange of goods and services up and downstream the supply-chain. The scale of the problem is graphically captured by the NGN-USD price chart. Inflationary policies, market forces and slump in oil-prices have all contributed to a relatively volatile naira which in turn has led to market-price inflations and now poses an existential threat to Nigerian SMEs. NairaX proposes a solution to this problem with the NIRX which is usable for e-commerce transactions (unlike traditional stable-coins) whilst maintaining its fixed-ratio peg to the naira backed by NairaX’s in-house fiat reserves.
