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

Harley Wallen’s Tale of Tails Racks up Many Wins on the Film Festival Circuit

New York, NY, October 6, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- After a long and very successful festival run with some historic wins including the first time ever “Tale of Tails” won Best TV Series, Best Lead Actor in a TV Series or film and Best Director at the 26th Annual Indie Gathering and turned around the following week and won the esteemed Golden Statue at the Hollywood Global Film Festival. “Tale of Tails” will be available on multiple platforms in late September (Tubi, Amazon/IMDb TV and Vudu to start with other outlets pending) and foreign sales in much of Europe.

The series is co-produced by original creator Tevis Marcum, Producer and Lead Actress Kaiti Wallen, Writer/Editor Steve Kopera and Writer/Director and Lead Actor Harley Wallen.

Short synopsis:
Tails is not a white-collar gentlemen’s club. It’s a borderline-legal bar with topless dancers and a back room where anything goes for the right price. Nick, the owner, keeps Tails afloat by taking advantage of the desperate women who dance for money and the desperate men who pay for female attention. When a dead body shows up in the bathroom, Nick’s control begins to unravel. Hunted by an ambitious, relentless cop, Nick’s enemies begin to surround him. He must decide how many friends to sacrifice in order to save himself.

When asked how surprising the series festival success has been Harley said “I felt like we had something special when we worked on the story but as we started filming it really came alive and I felt we had a place and an audience, but I do not take the festival accolades and reviews for granted and how well the series did as a ‘Tubi Exclusive’ was also a big compliment but I’m excited we will be available to a bigger audience with the additional outlets and all the new countries we’ll be in.”

“I get asked a lot about our guest stars and their impact and they were all really great! Yan Birch and Blanca Blanco actually came with me to the Hollywood Globals awards gala to accept the beautiful Golden Statue. They’ve been incredibly supportive and are excited about the possibilities and opportunities as Season 2 is currently being written,” said Wallen.

Tale of Tails had an amazing run at the film festival circuit with wins at Austin International Art Festival, Paris Play Film Festival, Toronto Film and Script Awards, Los Angeles Film Awards, Hollywood International Golden Age Awards, Crown Woods International Film Festival, Adbhooture Film Festival, Florence Film Awards, The IndieFest Film Awards, The Indie Gathering and Hollywood Global. They’re also finalists at the WSXA Awards and Best Indie Film Awards and also Official Selection at LA Indies, Gold Star Movie Awards, Chicago Indie Awards, Montreal Independent Film Festival, Russia’s White Nights Film Festival, Dubai Independent Film Festival, Moody Crab Film Fest and Top Indie Film Awards.

“With his new series “Tale of Tails”, director Harley Wallen weaves together a tale rich in drama, suspense, and intrigue set against the backdrop of the adult entertainment world. Replete with narratives that are not often explored in film and television in such a thought-provoking way, we are excited to share Harley’s work with a wider public audience!” said Rob Johnson, Founder of Homestead Entertainment, who is handling the project’s distribution.

When asked what to expect for Season 2 Wallen said “More action for once, more guest stars and I’m really excited about us having more time to get the story really strong and take the plot to a new level, a lot of people have asked for a longer season and longer episodes but we’re planning on keeping episodes to around 20 minutes but want to up to 10 episodes for Season 2.”

Unfortunately when we asked Wallen the whereabouts of Amber he pleaded the 5th.

Look for Season 1 of “Tale of Tails” with this new artwork soon on Amazon Prime, Vudu, IMDb TV and Tubi. For more info on “Tale of Tails”, please go to https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11620272/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

Harley and Kaiti Wallen are both represented by The Williamson Management Company.

Sublime Painting by American Landscape Artist John F. Kensett (1816-1872) Soars to $1.08 Million at Cottone Auctions

Geneseo, NY, USA, October 6, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- A truly sublime painting titled Singing Beach & Eagle Rock, Magnolia, Massachusetts by American landscape artist John Frederick Kensett (1816-1872), was the top lot in Cottone Auctions’ Fine Art, Antiques and Clock auction held on Saturday, September 18th. The painting saw trade competition into the high six figures, and easily surpassed its estimate, selling to a private collector by phone for $1.08 million. Overall, the sale grossed $3.7 million.

The Kensett painting was purchased in 1955 by Mrs. Adrian Smith (formerly Lusyd Wright Keating) of Buffalo, New York, from Victor D. Spark of New York, and bequested to her daughter Cynthia Doolittle in 1971. It was previously twice exhibited at the Albright Knox Art Gallery, first in 1958 and again in 1983.

“It has been a privilege to market the painting,” said Matt Cottone of Cottone Auctions. “I was pleased for our consignor – the Doolittles – who could have sent their things anywhere but gave us the opportunity.”

Catalog notes included quotes regarding the painting, including a letter by John K. Howat, assistant curator of American paintings and sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Mrs. Adrian W. Smith, on May 25, 1965, stating, “The Kensett strikes me as being a very fine one. The arrangement and colors are very clear and forceful — a good sign in Kensett’s work. The silence of these spare Kensetts is very impressive.”

More recently, Susan Crane, associate curator Albright Knox Art Gallery, in a letter to Mr. & Mrs. Doolittle on March 24, 1983, said, “Your Kensett was an important element in the success of the show — it really made the room glow. Several art historians, in fact, commented on its excellence. It really does rank with the most magnificent of his works, and we are grateful to have been able to show it in the context of his ‘peers’.”

There were also many outstanding lamps in the auction. These were led by a rare Tiffany Studios elaborate Peony lamp on a telescopic library base with a 22-inch shade ($390,000); a fine Tiffany Studios Dragonfly table lamp on a reticulated Indian base with a 20-inch shade ($153,600); a Tiffany Studios, Lily Pad table lamp on a twisted vine base with a 20-inch shade ($127,200); a Tiffany Studios Bamboo table lamp with a 16-inch shade ($136,800); and a rare Duffner and Kimberly Poppy floor lamp on a renaissance floor base ($98,400).

Modern and contemporary art included an oil on canvas designator by Ted Stamm (American, 1944-1984), titled DGR-32 (Dodger), selling for $55,200 to an overseas buyer. A gouache by Patrick Heron sold for $23,400 and Maternite by Vu Cao Dam brought $21,600. An oil on board by British artist Tristram Hillier titled The Mud Berth sold to a U.K buyer for $16,200.

An Early Tibetan Thangka from a private Rochester, New York collection sold to the phones for $30,000. A fine Turkish sword (Kilij) from the historic Wadsworth family sold to a buyer in Istanbul for $24,000, and a rare 17th century scagliola table, also from the Wadsworth family, brought $12,000.

The clocks category featured a rare E. Howard & Co. No. 49 astronomical hanging regulator, purchased directly from Edward Howard in 1875 by Henry Abbott, which sold for $174,000 to a bidder by phone. Other highlights included a rare D. J. Gale astronomical calendar gallery clock, patent model 1871, selling for $43,200, and a Robert Houdin (Paris) mystery swinging clock, which sold for $12,000.

Americana featured two exemplary Navajo weavings, one a Second Phase chief’s blanket, circa 1860-1870, the other a Navajo transitional blanket, in near pristine condition. Both were descended in the family of Othniel Charles Marsh, a paleontologist at Yale University. The blankets were purportedly given to him by Red Cloud, the native American Sioux chief. After intense competition, the blankets totaled $204,000.

Period furniture was led by a fine and rare Chippendale serpentine blocked-end slant-front desk, circa 1770, figured mahogany with a deep rich amber patina, shell carved and blocked interior, block ends and bold ball and claw feet with original period brasses, from the Wadsworth family ($15,000); and a diminutive New England Queen Anne tiger maple highboy, circa 1740-1760, with a deep rich honey brown patina, cabriole legs and pad feet with period brasses, purchased from Israel Sack in the 1940’s ($18,600).

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.

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.

Extremely Rare Mughal Coin Listed for Auction on Ammbr, World’s First Numismatics NFT Marketplace

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, October 4, 2021 – /ExPressRelease UK/- Ammbr is pleased to announce the listing by NFT auction a numismatic rarity a revolution in Islamic coinage, the “Bird Mohur” from the reign of Jalal-al-din Muhammad Akbar, perhaps the most enlightened of the Mughal (or “Moghul”) Empire. This particular coin is a fine example and one of only two known specimens. Any serious numismatist, with the budget to allow them, would be proud to add this coin to their collection.

The current owner of the Bird Mohur, a private collector, has been in talks with Ammbr’s Director of Procurement, Sunil Bumb, for some months, tracking the spectacular growth of the sale of artwork using NFT.

Ultra rare bird mohur

Says Mr. Bumb, “Through experimentation with the Ammbr team, the owner of this spectacular coin, perhaps the best in his collection, is now convinced of the tremendous opportunities in NFT technology and the approach we at Ammbr are taking to the legal framework supporting the decentralised trade in NFT. As an early Ammbr Platform verified account holder, he is considering tokenisation of a large part of his collection as the numismatics market moves into the exciting world of tokenised trading.”

Chief Strategy Officer at Ammbr, Rakesh Rajagopal explains the significance of this listing. “We see a kindred spirit to Blockchain in the enlightened spirit of Jalal-al-din Muhammad Akbar and his acumen in applying innovation to stimulate and foster an empire, an economic marvel of diversity and sustainability in its day. Ruling an empire with a great diversity of faiths, languages, and cultures, Akbar was remarkably tolerant and took elements drawn from Islam, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism as well as from Christianity, Jainism, and Buddhism and eventually bringing his own Syncretic religion called Dīn-i-Ilāhī.”

The listing of the Bird Mohur is a coup for Ammbr. Akbar issued very rare gold multiples of 100, 50, 20, 20, 5, and 2 mohurs as presentation pieces or diplomatic gifts. Few survive to this day, and none have appeared on the market in recent years.”

Collectors who wish to place a bid for the Bird Mohur may do so at the Ammbr NFT Auction site. Bids start at 688,001 BUSD – https://nft.ammbr.finance/nft/18

The Ammbr NFT Platform offers a highly secure sales and auction channel, supported by seller agreements that ensure strong anti-money laundering and commercially sound practices that match the fast and frictionless trade that typifies the technology. A wide range of valuable goods is targeted for listing on the Ammbr Platform, including numismatics, gems, jewellery, watches, stamps, antiques, and artwork.

About the Ammbr NFT Marketplace

Ammbr is an Abu Dhabi based decentralised technology company that develops and operates one of the leading platforms that will forever change the way creative artists, celebrities, and collectors conceive of ownership and the trading of intellectual property and valuable goods. Such ownership can now be not only outright but also fractional, lowering the bar to access, achieve affordability for everyone. By diminishing opacity in favour of transparency of information NFT technology will modernise and democratise an industry that has largely been shrouded in secrecy and only available to the well-heeled operating in the rarefied atmosphere of exclusive investor circles.

Background of the Auction Item

The Mughal (or “Moghul“) Empire ruled much of South Asia for over three centuries. Mughal emperors accumulated vast wealth, with an economy based on a stable and abundant coinage in gold, silver and copper. They commissioned magnificent buildings and works of art – including some of the largest, costliest, most beautiful and most historic coins ever issued.

Jalal-al-din Muhammad Akbar was just 14 years old when he came to the throne. His guardian, Bairam Khan, commander of the Mughal army, served as regent until Akbar came of age. Lavishly equipped with artillery and matchlock muskets, Akbar’s army conquered much of the South Asian subcontinent during a reign of almost 50 years.

Ruling his empire with its enormous diversity of faiths, languages and cultures, Akbar was remarkably tolerant, eventually abandoning orthodox Islam as the state religion. The Bird Mohur features several of Akbar’s innovations to the coinage. The first is its weight. Akbar introduced the Mohur as the standard weight for his gold coinage at around 11 grams. He then initiated his own dating system, the Din-i-Ilahi (literally Faith of God). This calendar incorporated elements of the different religious beliefs in his empire. The Ilahi calendar was solar, divided into twelve months, rather than the lunar Hijri calendar. Months bore the same names as those of the Persian kings, corresponding to the feasts of the Zoroastrians. The first Ilahi year was that of Akbar’s accession in AH 963. On coins, beginning in 1584, he recorded the date in terms of his regnal year rather than the Islamic calendar, and he replaced the Shahada (Muslim profession of faith) with an Arabic phrase most religions could accept: “God is great, glorified be His glory” (Allah akbar, jalla jalalahu). He abolished the discriminatory tax imposed on non-Muslims, and welcomed scholars, clerics, artists and poets of many religions and cultures to his court.

Some of Akbar’s late coins ignore the Islamic prohibition on artistic depiction of living creatures: the specific item listed on the Ammbr NFT Auction depicts very rare mohur shows what is often described as a duck, but is likely a royal game bird, the hubayra, surrounded by a rich floral pattern.

Akbar died on October 27, 1605. His tomb at Agra, built by his son Jahangir, is a masterpiece of Mughal architecture. The British Museum catalogue of Mughal coins succinctly explains why Akbar deserved the epithet “Great”:

“The proof of the soundness of his system is the continuance of the Moghul Empire after his death, in spite of the follies and vices of his successors.”

World’s First Halal DeFi Ecosystem MRHB DeFi Receives Strategic Investment from NewTribe Capital

Melbourne, Australia, Sep 29, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- The world’s first halal decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem MRHB DeFi has received a strategic investment from NewTribe Capital, a Venture Capital Private Equity Group.

This marks the seventh institutional investment in the DeFi ecosystem startup, following strategic investments from DeFi Mutual Fund Sheesha Finance, Dubai-based angel innovation investors Acreditus Partners and EMGS Group, the French Systems Integration company operating in the Middle East since 2003, to name a few.

NewTribe Capital: A Bold Investment Approach

With an ideology to ‘Invest in People’, NewTribe Capital takes a bold stance in their approach to investing – they back only the projects they feel add value to the blockchain ecosystem.

“Our philosophy is successful because we invest in relationships, not deals,” says Dhaval Parikh, Partner at NewTribe Capital. “Deals are simply transactions. We build exceptional relationships with companies that last, collaborating on projects with conviction.”

Investing in the first ethical, inclusive and faith-based MRHB DeFi ecosystem platform aligns with NewTribe’s company ethos and strategic goals. As an early investor and supporter, NewTribe recognizes both the vision and the long-term market potential of the faith-based DeFi pioneer.

Besides investment funds, which will support the continuing technology development and growth of MRHB DeFi, NewTribe Capital will also offer network and cross marketing support for the DeFi startup.

“We’re excited about collaborating with the highly successful NewTribe Capital team who share our long term visions for ethical DeFi. This relationship creates additional opportunities and industry connections that will drive more value for our community members. NewTribe has a proven track record of helping their partners succeed, and we are delighted to welcome them amongst other strategic stakeholders in our ambitious journey,” says Naquib Mohammed, MRHB DeFi Founder & CEO.

“This strategic alliance with NewTribe Capital is the latest institutional move by MRHB DeFi as we work to establish ourselves as the dominant player in the ethical decentralized finance space,” adds Mohammed.

DeFi made accessible to Ethical and Faith-based Communities

MRHB DeFi’s vision of an inclusive and halal crypto-verse is underpinned by Islamic ethical finance principles but is suitable for all those looking for a socially conscious blockchain that avoids interest, usury, exploitation and other business practices deemed unethical.

Being Shariah-compliant means MRHB DeFi can apply a vast body of knowledge and literature of Islamic Finance to ensure higher ethical and moral standards that are typically seen in the DeFi space.

Middletown, RI, September 28, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Each year, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) recognizes October as National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM). The doctors of the Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island (CSRI), one of the oldest chiropractic associations in the country, recently announced its support of the theme for this year’s NCHM—Keep Moving!

“When it comes to the musculoskeletal system, you really do need to move it or lose it. That’s why NCHM’s Keep Moving! Theme for this year’s month is so timely, particularly after the pandemic has limited the movement of so many,” said Dr. Kristin Kolesar Fabris, president of CSRI and a chiropractor at Be Well Chiropractic in Providence, Rhode Island. “Movement was a big part of the Chiropractic Society of RI’s ‘Straighten Up, RI’ campaign from earlier in this year. We’re delighted to continue the theme of movement through National Chiropractic Health Month.”

Adds Dr. Fabris, “Movement, coupled with chiropractic treatments, strengthens overall musculoskeletal health and leads to mobility, stability and ultimately the success of a life lived more fully and actively.”

During National Chiropractic Health Month 2021, CSRI members will provide information on exercise and steps to take toward muscle and joint health, low back pain prevention, better posture, and improved balance.

All natural and without prescription medications, chiropractic has been found to be beneficial for numerous conditions above and beyond neck and back pain.

CHASE BANK Disrupts Business of Small Minority Female Owner Without Notice

New York, NY, September 25, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- We’ve now seen the devastation caused by overreaching Big-Tech, Big Pharma, and other nefarious cut-throat operations of censorship and Cancel-Culture. Now, the list includes big banks that are actively squashing small business operations that engage in the public square. One of the very groups it swore to empower.

Question: If you engage in the public square of debate could you be a target by your banking institution?.

Let’s delve into the story.

Maryam Henein, a noted independent investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker, recent battle with CHASE Bank is enough to cause global trepidation. Her business account was not only closed but 3.5 was held without explanation. Can you imagine going about your day and suddenly discovering you no longer have access to your hard-earned cash?

The startling conversation was taped by Henein and when she pressed for clarity a Chase bank representative emphatically stated, “The bank was operating within its power to close the account at any time without giving a reason based on the agreement [initially] signed.”

Ironically, Chase invested a whopping 30 BILLION to fight systemic racism by helping minorities!

When she pressed for some level of clarity, the callous response will leave you speechless.

It was clear the Chase representative was following direct orders, but whose?

Individuals who speak publicly should be alarmed, especially if you’re a conservative minority. Just a brief snippet of who Maryam Henein is will one explain why she’s a target.

Award-winning documentary filmmaker of Vanishing of the Bees, narrated by Elliot Page. And director of the upcoming documentary on George Floyd that details the true story behind this psyop. The documentary outlines what the mainstream media left on the cutting room floor. Henein connects the ominous threads that many officials want to permanently leave out.
