MRHB DeFi Opens Up Private Sale Rounds to its Community Members

Dubai, UAE, Oct 8, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Socially conscious and ethical DeFi ecosystem MRHB DeFi is democratizing access to its private sale by allowing its public community members to partake in the pre-public sale rounds. Usually reserved only for the larger and institutional investors, the earlier stage private sale rounds offer early access, with investors able to enjoy privileged pricing.

MRHB’s community has reached 20,000 members in less than four months and to better reward their early supporters, MRHB has eliminated the large minimum participation amount required, in effect, leveling the playing field for smaller investors by offering access at pre-IDO prices. MRHB has officially announced that registration for the Pre-Public Sale Round 1 starts today, 7th October at 1PM UTC.

“In line with our ethos of inclusion, MHRB DeFi is pleased to offer this unique opportunity to our loyal community who has supported us from the beginning,” says MRHB DeFi CEO Naquib Mohammed. “Our inclusive and ethical philosophies promote equitable sharing of opportunities. This applies to our token launch as well as our products, so we stay true to our vision of empowering communities.”

Strategic Investments and Strong Support from Partnerships

Having onboarded institutional investors such as Mozaic of New World Group, Sheesha Finance, Contango Digital Assets and NewTribe Capital, to name a few, the DeFi ecosystem startup has received strategic investments which also comprise partnership support in various areas including advisory, marketing, networking, amongst others.

MRHB is currently developing eight different Shariah-compliant DeFi products, with the first being its Souq NFT, an NFT creation platform and marketplace which supports multi-chain solutions.

Closely following the launch of the Souq NFT would be the Sahal Wallet, a multi-asset, non-custodial wallet that makes it easy to invest in halal crypto assets with in-built shariah-screening.

MRHB DeFi was founded with a vision of bringing societies and communities not familiar with decentralized finance into the cryptoverse, and has a particular focus on delivering halal DeFi services which adhere to the ethical investment and financing principles of Islamic faith. Such business practices include those that avoid interest, usury, exploitation and other acts deemed unethical.

With more than US$3 trillion of liquidity invested in the Islamic finance market, bringing even a tiny portion of this to DeFi will represent a major step forward in the growth of DeFi worldwide whose total value locked is estimated to be around US$150 billion.

About MRHB DeFi:
MRHB DeFi is a halal, decentralised finance platform built to bring ethics to the DeFi space with an approach that supports the inclusion of faith-based and other excluded communities, in addition to existing crypto-natives. Everyone can then benefit from the full empowerment potential of DeFi to help build a true peer-to-peer financial and economic value system.

Based on the tenets of blockchain such as trust, transparency, and security, MRHB DeFi has encapsulated universally applicable principles of Shariah into those tenets of blockchain to render a suite of offerings.

The project is backed by a diverse and strong team with backgrounds spanning crypto, technology, shariah, finance and seasoned institutional veterans of industry. The public sale offering will be in December. Register your interest and read more about MRHB DeFi’s Shariah Concept Paper, Lite and White Paper here: https://marhabadefi.com/info-centre.php

Faith-based, Excluded Communities, An Untapped Opportunity

The partnership is aimed at expanding the reach of MRHB DeFi beyond crypto-natives to engage new users and communities who are attracted to a more ethical and faith-based vision.

“It’s surprising to us that such an important part of the world has not been able to participate in DeFi opportunities yet. MRHB is opening an important door in the Muslim Community for people who wish to benefit from decentralized finance while remaining faithful to their beliefs. We’re thrilled to be a part of that.” – Contango Managing Director, Mike Grantis.

“We are first in building DeFi services that solve issues of faith, ethics, exclusion, and complexity. Our user-friendly platform provides equal opportunities to everyone, not only those who share our concern for holding crypto assets that are halal. With Contango’s support, we will continue our journey of growth and development within Islamic communities and beyond.” – MRHB DeFi CEO Naquib Mohammed.

MRHB DeFi was founded on the principle of bringing societies and communities not familiar with decentralized finance into the space, and has a particular focus on delivering halal DeFi services which adhere to the tenets of Islamic faith, such as business practices that avoid interest, usury, exploitation and other acts deemed unethical.

With more than USD 3 trillion in liquidity available in the Islamic finance market, bringing even a tiny portion of this to DeFi will represent a major step forward in the growth of DeFi worldwide, and will enable people with no experience of the market to share in its opportunities.

MRHB DeFi recently announced partnerships with Sheesha Finance, NewTribe Capital, Acreditus Partners, EMGS Group and Coinsbit India, working towards expanding its reach and visibility to people new to blockchain, as well as long time believers in the cryptocurrency and digital asset industry.

About MRHB DeFi:
MRHB DeFi is a halal, decentralised finance platform built to embody the true spirit of an “Ethical and Inclusive DeFi” by following faith-based financial and business principles, where all excluded communities can benefit from the full empowerment potential of DeFi.

Based on the tenets of blockchain such as trust, transparency, and security, MRHB DeFi has encapsulated universally applicable principles of Shariah into those tenets of blockchain to render a suite of offerings. It is a complete DeFi ecosystem whose products, protocols and crypto-assets are governed primarily by the ethical, inclusive, sustainable and charitable investment principles associated with the Islamic faith or ‘Islamic Finance’ (‘IF’ as it is commonly known).

The diverse team is comprised of researchers, technocrats, influencers, Islamic fintech experts & business entrepreneurs, who came together to ensure that MRHB DeFi prevails in a manner that will impact society as a whole, essentially bridging the gap between the faith-conscious communities and the blockchain world.

Layers of Water By Studio Khora, An Architectural Gem, to be Completed in Late 2022

Pompano Beach, FL, October 11, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Exciting new construction, an architectural gem, to be completed in late 2022 on the most desirable dry lot in Harbor Beach, with over one-third acre of park-like grounds, lush vegetation, and peaceful serenity. A private beach club and marina are reached by a leisurely five-minute stroll from the house.

This contemporary residence, named Layers of Water, is designed by Studio Khora, top Fort Lauderdale architects, named a top 50 U.S. residential coastal architect by the prestigious Ocean Home Magazine.

The dramatic contemporary house, with its roof cantilever, filters the outdoors views while reflecting the natural surroundings in a stunning two-level waterfall. The façade design, with a double-floor glass curtain wall, creates a harmonious scale and balance between interior design and the mature landscaping outside.

Penna, KHORA Senior Designer, says, “The movement of falling water not only refreshes the outdoor temperature but also reflects the extraordinary views of the surrounding landscape and classical architecture, only found at Harbour Beach.” The contemporary architectural design, with few and small rear-facing windows, creates privacy yet welcomes the outdoors to all interior rooms. The combination of large and static design elements and passive views enhance contemplation.

On the first floor, a wrap-around pool embraces the master bedroom. As an option, two of the four additional en-suite bedrooms may be used as a home-gym or home-theater. The oversized garage offers generous accommodation for three cars, a golf cart, and a motorcycle. The three-car parking space can be doubled with the addition of car elevators due to the 11-feet, 10-inches ceiling height. The innovative hangar doors provide functional design freedom for the garage and add a high-tech contemporary style element.
