Central bank authorities are upbeat over the use of ZiG for value preservation purposes.  

“There is that need for Zimbabweans to use ZiG, I implore the nation to focus on a currency preservation system to facilitate ease and convenience to Zimbabwe. Like what I have said, it is all about confidence as the central bank, we are guaranteeing confidence in the economy,” said the governor.
