According to Bergalli [1], corruption is an indicator of change in the forms of social interaction: the interest of gain becomes the most important of the interests that weave the social bond. At this point, in a relation of mutual assistance, help during difficult times can decrease because there is nothing to gain by helping. Using survey data from the National Institute of Statistics on 9,222 households in 2014, estimates from a logit model show that the fact that corruption is a major problem for the country decreases the probability of getting help from neighbours in difficult times. The interest of gain has led to a deterioration of good neighbourliness in Cameroon.</p> 2022-07-27T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Cryptocurrency and Global Practices: Lessons for Nigeria 2022-08-06T12:25:51+00:00 O. A. Ogunode A. T. Iwala O. A. Awoniyi B. O. Amusa T. R. Omosebi S. K. Kassim R. I. Akintoye <p>This paper examined cryptocurrency and its global practices with particular reference to salient lessons for the Nigerian economy. The desk review methodology anchored on content analysis was used for the study. The paper identified distrust in political systems, weak domestic currency and high inflation rates as key factors fueling the growth of cryptocurrency usage in Nigeria thus motivating individuals to resort to cryptocurrencies as a tool for wealth preservation and inflation hedge. The study also found that the existence of trust deficit and challenges associated with privacy concerns, system uptime and stringent onboarding requirements were capable of derailing the success of the newly launched digital currency(‘e-naira’) issued by government to curtail cryptocurrency usage in Nigeria. The study concluded that cryptocurrencies and central bank issued digital currencies (CBDCs) are now part and parcel of the new economic order and represents the future of finance. It therefore recommended that nation states should work assiduously to develop uniformly agreed regulatory framework and global standards for the usage of cryptocurrencies.</p> 2022-08-06T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
