Last Friday, the market capitalisation and unlisted securities index (NSI) ended at N525.65 billion and 716.95 points respectively. At the close of transactions yesterday, both indicators remained unchanged.

In the same vein, there was a 72.7 percent decline in the number of deals carried out yesterday at the unlisted securities market.
According to data from the exchange, only three deals were executed at the NASD OTC market as against the 11 deals of the preceding session.
A breakdown of these deals showed that FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria Plc, Niger Delta Production and Exploration (NDEP) Plc and VFD Group Plc recorded one deal each.
Business Post reports that there were no price gainers or losers on Monday as all the 40 securities admitted to the bourse retained their previous values.
ARM Life Plc closed the session as the most active stock by volume (year-to-date) on Monday with 7.4 billion units of its shares transacted for N4.6 billion. Central Securities Clearing Systems (CSCS) Plc was in second place with 196.8 million units worth N2.6 billion, while Food Concept Plc held the third position with 110 million units of its shares worth N80.5 million.

The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. 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.
