The board of directors of FBN Holdings Plc has recommended the payment of a cash dividend of 26 kobo per share to shareholders of the company.

This information was revealed in the financial statements released by the firm on Friday afternoon and uploaded on the website of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).

It was disclosed that the dividend payment, which amounts to N9.3 billion, is for the 2018 financial year.

This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
