The introduction of bond notes has created another economy whereby unsuspecting customers are required to pay 10% extra when they pay in bond notes. This is largely because the bond notes are not trusted, hard to convert to USD dollars despite their value being equal to 1;1. When people go to the banks with the bond notes, they don’t get the money converted to USD cash, instead they are allowed to deposit them into the bank accounts. Some banks have completely stopped giving out USD dollars, and they allow withdrawals only in bond notes. This system has resulted in many people shying away from the traditional banking system and people keep their foreign currency at home.
