Shariah Crypto Platform Launches in UAE

Striving to adhere to “the high moral requirements set forth by the Shariah community,” the company has decided to create an in-house Shariah Advisory Board in order to “ensure that Islam is finally included in the global cryptocurrency market.”
The Board has been created as an independent body including internationally recognized Shariah experts, the Arabian Business Community reported. Their role will be to provide inputs on Shariah matters and help FICE comply with Shariah principles. Adab Solutions hopes to not only ensure high quality of exchange services but also support the inclusion of Muslim crypto enthusiasts and traders into the space.
Russian Region Issues Its Amurcoin
Amur Oblast, a region located in Russia’s Far East, has emitted 1 million of its own tokens called Amurcoins. The cryptos will be used by participants in the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) scheduled to take place September 11 – 13, 2018 in Vladivostok. EEF has become a major platform for the presentation of new strategies to develop and promote political, economic and cultural links between the Russian Federation and countries from the Asia-Pacific region.
EEF guests will be rewarded with Amurcoins for every stride they make at the venue of the event, Bitnovosti reports. They can use the tokens to purchase and pay for a variety of goods and services, from souvenirs and ice cream, to renting a hotel room. The experiment, supported by local crypto enthusiasts and their friends from Moscow, is intended to help visitors better understand what blockchain is, how cryptocurrencies work, and also present Amur as an innovative, high-tech hub. The Oblast is home to the first Russian digital economy school and is currently building an international blockchain center.
