Read all about the top 10 digital banks Nigeria.
In this very computerized era, the need to visit banking halls has been greatly reduced, with mobile & internet banking allowing people to carry out banking transactions from their digital devices.
Digital banks allow you to perform all banking transactions from digital devices, without operating any physical locations.
Basically digital banks conduct all banking operations online, and they usually don’t have any physical location where they conduct any banking services.
Because this digital banks don’t operate any physical location and save a lot of cost, they offer you higher interest rates on your savings and also charge less fess, when compared to a standard bank. They are completely regulated by the central bank of Nigeria, so you should have no fears when banking with them.
