MRHB DeFi: Successful US$5.5M Fundraise to Fuel Vision of Bringing Ethical DeFi to Excluded Communities Everywhere

Dubai, UAE, Jan 31, 2022 -/ExPressRelease UK/- MRHB DeFi, the world’s first decentralized finance ecosystem platform focused on ethical, sustainable and halal crypto opportunities, has successfully raised a total of USD 5.5 million through a series of private and public funding rounds which culminated in an initial DEX offering (IDO) that was oversubscribed on the DODO and ZeeDO launchpads.

Prior to its IDO, the startup gave the community direct access through two public sales on its official website, which saw tremendous support from its community of over 50,000 members.

“Our funding rounds have surpassed our expectations and prove beyond doubt the huge demand for ethics in the cryptoverse,” said MRHB DeFi CEO Naquib Mohammed. “We want to take the opportunity to express our heartfelt appreciation for our valued partners and loyal supporters, without whom we would not have made it this far. These are just the first steps of our ambitious multi-year journey that we have begun, together with our community, to ensure that everyone can participate in building an ecosystem where trust and values matter – hence giving access to the growing opportunities of the crypto-economy.”

The ethical startup is also backed by investors and partners which include Polygon Technology, Sheesha Finance, Australian Gulf Capital, Mozaic, NewTribe Capital, Blockchain Australia, Contango Digital Assets, Masary Capital, ZKSync, Acreditus Partners, EMGS Group, Sinofy Group, Sukhavati Protocol and MKD Capital amongst others.

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela

MRHB began as an idea 15 months ago, when Naquib, who was at that time working on Enterprise Blockchain use cases, was interviewed by a crypto news agency about the general trends of DLT.

The questions came around to the acceptance of crypto within the muslim communities in the Middle East, an interesting angle which led Naquib to delve further into the DeFi world, where he noticed the absence of halal projects. Understanding that there was a gap, he started putting down ideas and developing conversations with tech friends and like-minded connections, all of whom saw the immense possibilities with crypto but were disheartened by the absence of projects and protocols that were halal and consistent with their financial and ethical principles. The immense complexity of the cryptoverse as a whole also stood out as a further deterrent.

Resident in Saudi Arabia, he soon realised through various community discussions – both in the middle east and farther afield – that many fellow Millennials and Gen Z’ers were facing the same challenges and were hence avoiding the entire cryptoverse. This meant that many communities – especially Muslims – were excluded from the opportunities in this new tech frontier. Thus began his journey of taking on the challenge and goal of building a landmark halal project in the DeFi ecosystem.

Over the course of six months, Naquib assembled a team that included not just developers but reputable industry professionals and Shariah experts, all of whom shared his vision of creating an ethical DeFi ecosystem that reflects community values and beliefs. It would be the first to fill a major gap in the crypto space and address the needs of communities that number more than a billion, who have all thus far been excluded due to ethics, faith, fear and complexity.

While the DeFi offerings were aimed at adhering to ethical investment and financing principles rooted in Islamic Finance (primarily the prohibition on interest-based lending and income, and sectors deemed unethical or exploitative like gambling, pornography etc), MRHB would also be focused on removing technological complexity. Thus the overall objective was to build a more empowering and ethical community-focused platform that would also cater to those new to crypto while addressing the negative perception created by extensive instances of fraud, risk and opacity in the crypto space.

The Islamic Finance sector is the first target and is the largest and most active faith-based market. It is currently sized at around USD 3 trillion – attracting even a small portion of Islamic liquidity into DeFi will represent a major boost to the total value of the DeFi sector worldwide.

Community Focused and Community Supported

Approximately 85% of the funds raised came from the MRHB global community which spans from Canada to Australia – all of whom are looking for an ethical and halal entry into the cryptoverse. The inclusive startup is aptly named, with MRHB being short for “Marhaba”, which means “welcome” in Arabic, as the project ushers in entire crypto newbie communities.

The platform’s $MRHB token is now available for trades on PancakeSwap, one of the leading decentralized exchanges on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) network and remains above the launch price in spite of overall bearish markets.

To reward the community and encourage more market liquidity, a 5 million pool of MRHB token rewards has been set aside for token holders who provide liquidity to the MRHB/BNB pool on PancakeSwap. These rewards are for the next two months and apply on top of their share of trading fees earned. Token lockups for early project supporters will begin soon, allowing liquidity providers to invest their $MRHB tokens and receive additional rewards.

MRHB DeFi is already moving forward with their production roadmap, having recently launched its Souq NFT Marketplace, the first NFT marketplace guaranteed to contain halal-only content. The launch of Sahal Wallet, a non-custodial mobile wallet featuring filtering technology that will allow for frictionless access to halal tokens, is slated for the middle of next month. The pioneering Liquidity Harvester, MRHB’s passive and stable crypto income product, will be launching in Q2 and the project is currently in advanced discussions with pioneering regulated institutional partners to offer halal crypto-wealth products. More decentralized and centralized exchange listings are also coming up in the near future, welcome news for the MRHB community.

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.

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.

World’s Fastest, Carbon-Neutral Blockchain Launches Archethic Lab, by The Builders for The Builders

Paris, France, January 13, 2022 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Archethic, the world’s fastest and most secure blockchain network, has launched the Archethic Lab web portal, featuring a series of tools that make it easier for users and developers to join the project’s growing ecosystem.

The website contains links to Archethic’s testnet and mainnet beta, regular video tech updates, as well as all the tools and documentation a newcomer will need to get started.

“We’re embracing the spirit of community-led scalable initiatives with an open invitation to developers looking for an exciting blockchain project to get involved with from an early stage,” said Sebastien Dupont, Chairman, Archethic Foundation. “This initiative is led by Web3 builders for Web3 builders. With Archethic’s highly scalable blockchain being perfectly primed for real-world use in high-traffic use-cases such as content publication (or website hosting), mailing solutions, we’re very excited to watch this project evolve as crypto and blockchain are finally being adopted into the mainstream.”

Test how to safely store $UCO in the Archethic Mobile Wallet

One of the tools that will be of use for anybody interested in supporting the project (not just developers) is the Archethic Mobile Wallet. The wallet supports transactions of Archethic’s $UCO tokens and is also compatible with NFT transfers on the Archethic testnet.

A GitHub page is available with APKs for downloading a mobile wallet on Android devices. The page also includes a repo for developers to build their own wallets and a beta version of a web app wallet.

The wallet is highly secure, with no funds being lost should the wallet be deleted from a device. A 24-word mnemonic recovery password is all that’s needed to re-access the wallet on any compatible device. Users must make sure to keep their recovery password safely recorded in an offline or analog format for the highest security.

Build a one-page website (any website), explore the network and more

The other three tools are aimed at developers looking to get started building on the Archethic blockchain. In all cases, complete documentation has been provided — usually in both written and video form — to make it easy to learn the ropes.

AEWeb is a tool that helps web developers deploy websites on the blockchain. Boasting a decentralized security layer that is on par with aviation security standards, Archethic is a top choice for deploying a website that is as secure as can be from hacking and all other possible security failures.

A lot of websites get created globally every day where 99% of them are very small, and medium-sized websites, its maintenance, security risks & costs are very high.

AEWeb provides a single solution to all these problems within a fraction of the total cost.

Plus it’s simple to use and saves a lot of time and is secure.

Beacon Chains

The Beacon Explorer is a blockchain explorer that makes it possible to examine the “beacon chains” used to coordinate and synchronize the Archethic network. Archethic uses a unique consensus protocol called ARCH that runs multiple grouped beacon chains in parallel, with each chain being composed of blocks containing a single validated transaction each. The ARCH consensus protocol is what allows Archethic to operate so blazingly fast, capable of processing up to 1 million transactions per second.

Testnet Faucet

Lastly, developers looking to build DApps that interface with UCO will need a way to test their projects. The Archethic testnet comes equipped with a UCO faucet that supplies 100 UCO at a time, strictly for testing purposes. This allows developers to build projects without burning their own funds to validate code. Being a naturally eco-friendly blockchain, Archethic is also cost-efficient, and the UCO faucet is yet another step toward saving resources of all kinds.

The Archethic mainnet beta launched in June of 2021 after four years of research and development aimed at solving limitations and challenges faced by other blockchains. The project aims to disrupt mainstream industries such as retail and finance, giving interested developers ample opportunity to build innovative new technologies with the potential to make a real impact.

About Archethic Public Blockchain:
Archethic is a highly scalable, tamper-proof Blockchain with scalability greater than 1 Million TPS, and a validation time of fewer than 5 seconds. The blockchain has the capacity to handle up to 90% maliciousness, 3.6 billion times less energy consumption than Bitcoin, and 0.1% of the transaction fees.

The platform aims to replace and improve all current applications with a comprehensive and open ecosystem, allowing people to move from the trust imposed by centralized to decentralized systems while keeping identity and privacy under the control of the user.

With Archethic, you can access your identity but no one owns it. The security and threat issues that centralized systems pose helped us realize that self-sovereign identity is needed now more than ever. An Open Source autonomous & Decentralized network in the hands of the world population created by the people, for the people.

Double Wins for Sleeve Sponsor Jetcoin as Huddersfield Defeats EPL Burnley in FA Cup Game, After Successful $JET Fundraise

Singapore, January 13, 2022 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Blockchain-powered sports and entertainment NFT solution Jetcoin celebrates the victory of their sleeve-sponsored team Huddersfield Town A.F.C. which has defeated Burnley in the FA Cup Third Round.

This comes close on the heels of the sport NFT solutions provider’s IDO which closed successfully a week before, followed by its listing on popular BSC (Binance Smart Chain) DEX (decentralized exchange) Pancakeswap, with 80% of the funds raised, locked in liquidity on the platform.

“Broadcast in 38 countries with potential viewership of 200 million, the FA Cup games offer massive global exposure and we couldn’t be prouder of our team Huddersfield’s amazing performance on the pitch this past weekend,” declares Jetcoin CEO and founder Eric Alexandre.

Three match jerseys worn at the game are redeemable for fans through the JET Interactive NFT cards.

History on Repeat? Double Underdog Wins with Jetcoin Sleeve Sponsorship

Currently, Burnley competes in the top tier of English Football, the English Premier League, while Town competes in the Championship, the second tier. For Jetcoin, the upset win is reminiscent of the 2018 FA Cup Championship when another David-Goliath tale played out as Wigan Athletic F.C., a League One team two divisions down EPL, scored a historic win against Manchester City, the then leading team in the EPL. Both times saw sport NFT solutions provider Jetcoin supporting the underdog with sleeve sponsorship and emerging victorious.

2022 also marks the 100th anniversary of Huddersfield’s only FA Cup success in 1922, a run which began with a 2-2 draw at Turf Moor, home stadium to Burnley.

Staking Program Officially Open with 1 oz Pure Silver Minted $JET for 1st 100 Participants

$JET holders can now swap and trade on Pancakeswap in the WBNB/JET liquidity pool:

Pancakeswap https://pancakeswap.finance/swap?outputCurrency=0xc5b43669a899c5da2a98b2bf8c9082d5e8d5ee0d

Dextools https://www.dextools.io/app/bsc/pair-explorer/0xbc2b703b506fb780c8ef79d1ae5f475cdec774c3

To reward its supporters, Jetcoin is rolling out a 30-day staking program for liquidity providers (LPs) who provide liquidity to the WBNB/JET pool to earn limited edition JET NFTs.

In addition, the first 100 participants who stake 1 BNB worth of the WBNB/JET pair for 30 days will also receive a 1 oz pure silver physical Jetcoin ($JET). This limited reward offer will be dropped into the ‘Rewards’ slide of the JET NFT app 7 days before the staking period of the LP tokens ends.

Detailed step-by-step instructions on how to provide liquidity for the WBNB/JET pair in PancakeSwap and how to lock the Liquidity Provider (LP) tokens can be found here: https://jetcoins.medium.com/stake-earn-nfts-with-jet-2f0183381191

MRHB DeFi Closes Successful USD5.5M Fundraise with IDO and Announces 5 Million Pool of MRHB Token Rewards for Liquidity Providers

Melbourne, Australia, Jan 1, 2022 -/ExPressRelease UK/- The world’s first ethical and halal DeFi ecosystem platform MRHB DeFi officially concluded its successful fundraising with its final public IDO rounds on DODO and ZeeDO launchpads, altogether raising a total of US$5.5 million with around 85% coming from a global community of investors looking for an ethical and halal entry into the cryptoverse.

Immediately following the close of the IDO, the MRHB token was listed on the popular DEX PancakeSwap, a leading decentralized exchange on Binance Smart Chain (BSC). For the very first time, early supporters of the project were able to trade and swap their MRHB tokens.

5 Million Pool of $MRHB Token Rewards for Liquidity Providers

Instead of standard buy/sell order books, Pancakeswap uses the Automated Market Maker (AMM) model where trades are done through a ‘Liquidity Pool’ whereby users invest funds (become Liquidity Providers or LP’s) to the pools to facilitate swaps.

MRHB DeFi has now announced that over the next three months, $MRHB token holders can become Liquidity Providers on PancakeSwap and earn their share of the pool of 5,000,000 MRHB token rewards.

The following MRHB/USDT liquidity pool has been set up on PancakeSwap, and MRHB Rewards will only apply to this pool:

  • https://pancakeswap.finance/swap?inputCurrency=0xd10332818d6a9b4b84bf5d87dbf9d80012fdf913&outputCurrency=0x55d398326f99059ff775485246999027b3197955

Liquidity Providers to the pool can earn in two ways:

  1. By supplying liquidity to the pool, the liquidity providers earn transaction fees on PancakeSwap as profit. The total trading profits made will be divided among the LPs, proportional to the amount of funds contributed and the amount of time funds are invested in the pool.
  2. In addition, MRHB DeFi will offer a reward to the LP investors on condition that they invest funds into the pool at any point during the three month loyalty period. The $MRHB token reward pool will initially begin at 5,000,000 to be shared among the LP token holders. The number of tokens awarded will change over time but will be visible on the MRHB Reward Dashboard (https://rewards.mrhb.network/). Investors can withdraw their funds at any time.

As an extra incentive for LPs, MRHB DeFi has announced that LP’s who lock their tokens for the full 90 days in the pool will have the right to claim an NFT from the first collection at their Souq NFT marketplace. Souq NFT is the first anti-NSFW NFT marketplace in the world that is focussed on creating an ethical and halal marketplace for digital art and other NFT assets.

MRHB DeFi has provided more detailed instructions on how to be Liquidity Providers in the following videos:

  • How to Buy/Swap MRHB Tokens Using Metamask Wallet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-LqaeY9Ttw
  • How to Make Passive Income by Providing Liquidity on Pancakeswap:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-LqaeY9Ttw

A Conditional ‘Hibah’ Gift

The LP token rewards are defined as a conditional gift (‘hibah muallaqah bi al-sharth’) that is provided by a third party, permissible according to the Islamic Fiqh. Since there is no (bilateral) exchange contract or transaction between MRHB DeFi and LPs (liquidity providers), MRHB DeFi is considered a third party and is providing the rewards as a gesture of appreciation to their loyal supporters.

As the share of rewards depends on various factors such as the number of providers and amount of time invested, such LP rewards are not fixed, although they will be stated at the time the tokens are invested into the liquidity pool.

Such rewards must also be considered together with the price movements (Impermanent Loss) of the MRHB token to assess the overall return to the token holder should they withdraw their funds from the liquidity pool.

Reminder for Vigilance

The correct MRHB DeFi contract address for the $MRHB BEP20 Token is as follows:
https://bscscan.com/address/0xd10332818D6A9B4b84bf5d87DbF9D80012FDF913

MRHB token holders are reminded to be vigilant against scammers and fake addresses and should exercise caution whenever participating in transactions. Only the following official channels contain the most current and accurate information about the developments of $MRHB.

World’s First Halal NFT Marketplace Souq NFT Powered by MRHB DeFi Launches with ‘Hallal Gachyi’ from Gachyi Land

Melbourne, Australia, December 24, 2021 — The world’s first ethical and inclusive DeFi ecosystem platform MRHB DeFi has launched its highly anticipated Souq NFT marketplace. Partnering with Gachyi Land, the first blockchain gaming gacha-launchpad ecosystem, the two parties will mint and issue Hallal Gachyi, a unique Gachyi Land-themed NFT collection created for Souq NFT.

Souq NFT is the first NFT marketplace in the world focussed on creating an ethical and halal marketplace for digital art and other NFT assets. Artists on the platform follow image, audio and video content guidelines such as no hate speech, racism or nudity, and must verify that the artworks are original pieces (no rip-offs of existing NFTs).

The MRHB DeFi collaboration with Gachyi Land will see the latter create 1,410 Hallal Gachyi NFTs (otherwise known as ‘Rimos’). MRHB DeFi will create and deploy the smart contract for these NFTs and Hallal Gachyi will be sold on Souq NFT marketplace.

“Our vision to create an inclusive, ethical DeFi and NFT ecosystem continues to take shape,” says Deniz Dalkilic, CTO of MRHB DeFi. “The Hallal Gachyi collection is the result of a unique collaboration with Gachyi Land and demonstrates our commitment to launching quality crypto products that meet and hopefully exceed community expectations.”

“NFTs are the building blocks of our digital future – they allow us to own digital items in ways we have never been able to before,” comments May Wong, founder of Gachyi Land. “We wanted to provide a colorful and cute entry point into the NFT space for the Islamic community, in the form of a ‘Rimo’. The NFT space has shown us that early adoption of NFTs that gain value over time represents opportunity. We are excited to release Hallal Gachyi with MRHB and provide value to their community!”

Hallal Gachyi NFTs will be issued on the BSC blockchain using the ERC-721 token standard. NFT owners will be able to play a mini-game at a future date where they can earn rewards such as $MRHB tokens and $Polymer tokens. The NFTs will also receive utility in Gachyi Land’s MMO RPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game), expected to be released in 2023.

Both parties will promote the new venture together on their respective platforms and are exploring future plans for MRHB to create other gamification models that integrate with the MRHB ecosystem.

A Shared Vision to Empower Communities
The Gachyi Land platform was created with the desire to empower artists with its disruptive NFT ecosystem. Gachyi Land provides artists with the platform, community, technology and tools they need to display and sell their work, and further explore the possibilities of the digital realm.

Similarly, MRHB DeFi was conceived with the goal of giving excluded and crypto-cautious communities better access to cryptoverse opportunities with a key focus on the provision of decentralized financial services that avoid interest-based profits and lending. MRHB DeFi bridges the existing gap between crypto offerings and the ethical faith-based community.

The journey to an inclusive, ethical DeFi cryptoverse has not been a lonely one for MRHB DeFi. The halal project is currently backed by investors and partners which include Polygon Technology, Sheesha Finance, Blockchain Australia, Australian Gulf Capital, Mozaic, Contango Digital Assets, NewTribe Capital, Masary Capital, ZKSync, Acreditus Partners, EMGS Group, Sinofy Group, MKD Capital and others.

In collaboration with management consulting group, Sinofy, MRHB DeFi has also organized an NFT art competition, designed for creators and artists, within the framework of the DEV Challenge Season 18 championships in Ukraine. More information on how to participate can be found in the MRHB DeFi Medium blog.

December is turning out to be a very exciting and busy month for MRHB DeFi, having launched their IDO yesterday on December 22nd. The $MRHB tokens were sold out on the DODO launchpad in half a day, with the second launchpad ZeeDO catching up. Upon completion of IDO, TGE (Token Generation Event) will take place on December 24th 1PM UTC/GMT, which will then be closely followed by its listing on the popular DEX Pancakeswap.

Successful Listen ($LSTN) Fundraising on Launchpool followed by NFT Sale with Massive Discounts

British Virgin Islands, December 24, 2021 — Following a successful community raise on Launchpool, with 2.7 million tokens staked by 3,000+ wallets at a value of USD 9.4 million, Tony Hollingsworth, CEO of the Listen Campaign announced a massive increase in $LSTN utilities, including a 50% discount on Listen NFTs.

“We are very pleased with the private sales of the Listen Tokens ($LSTN),” said Hollingsworth. “After the initial raise, we went back at the request of the Launchpool community for a total raise of $750,000 and an additional $350,000 on Infinity Pad. With Lightning and IDO coming up, we then decided to reward our loyal holders and give back via this massive discount.”

Listen NFT collections

The NFT sale will begin with an unprecedented collection of NFTs featuring never-to-be-repeated performances by huge artists such as Stevie Wonder, Sting, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, BB King, George Michael, Jon Bon Jovi, MC Hammer, and dozens more.

In addition to the discounts available, $LSTN token holders have a chance to win 1 of 50 pairs of tickets to the private view of the “Listen Live” event at the Los Angeles Coliseum on June 20th to 22nd, featuring dozens of film and music stars.

“In order to reward our most loyal holders,” continued Hollingsworth, “those with greater holdings will unlock greater discounts, but we will do more, including having auctions that are open only to $LSTN holders, staking benefits and spot contests and prizes.”

The Listen Campaign platform has an annual reach of 500 million people

The Listen NFTs are a part of the Listen Campaign, a global broadcast campaign in 200 countries, 9 languages and scheduled to reach over 500 million people. The Listen Campaign will benefit 1 billion vulnerable and disadvantaged children around the world. The tokens themselves will be supported via a massive marketing and advertising campaign.

Record-holding team

The team behind the Listen Campaign is headed by Tony Hollingsworth, who created nine of the largest global campaigns including the “Nelson Mandela 70th Anniversary Tribute” and “The Wall: Live in Berlin”. They will be bringing their expertise to the decade-long Listen Campaign.

As the team prepares for launch, they have lined up their final IDO Launchpad with Lightning to further increase the number of token holders, project supporters and community members.

Imminent completion of the security audit will be followed by a strong promotion and execution of TGE and NFT launch via the ‘Listen Collectibles Auction and Shop’.

LCAS, Built on Flow

Listen built their platform from the ground up to make buying NFTs as easy as possible for non-Crypto audiences. It is built on the Flow blockchain so it is faster, allows for native fiat payments using regular credit cards and has lower transaction fees. Flow is also more environmentally friendly than Ethereum.

The public sale price of the $MRHB token is USD 0.04 on both ZeeDO, the launchpad of multi-chain DEX aggregator ZeroSwap, and on the DODO BSC launchpad, whose whitelist for the IDO has reportedly already been filled, as of this morning. There will be zero lockup periods for these tokens, which will be 100% released at TGE.

Massive Community Interest for Ethical, Sustainable and Inclusive DeFi Offerings

The community-first project has already concluded two successful pre-launch sales on their website. Unlike many other projects, where only VCs and VIPs get priority, MRHB opened their early rounds to the community to help share the crypto-opportunity – a move celebrated by the now 70,000 strong supporters. For the team, this served as an important validation of the interest for DeFi services rooted in ethics, sustainability and inclusion.

MRHB DeFi was founded with a vision of providing excluded and crypto-cautious communities greater access to the growing opportunities and utilities of the crypto sphere. The project is underpinned by offering faith-based DeFi services which adhere to the ethical investment and financing principles rooted in Islamic Finance – a sector valued at around USD 3 trillion of assets. Bringing even a small portion of Shariah-sensitive liquidity into DeFi will represent a major boost to the total value of the DeFi sector worldwide.

Business practices deemed ethical include those that avoid interest, usury, social exploitation as well as support sustainability, asset or utility backed financing, transparency and equitable risk-reward sharing. These principles have universal appeal far beyond the faith conscious community as evidenced by a large number of stakeholders beyond the halal-seeking population.

Many of the values upheld by the halal platform align with several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and MRHB is also a signatory of the Crypto Climate Accords, a group that seeks to achieve net-zero emissions from electricity consumption by 2030 as well as develop standards and technologies to accelerate the progress toward 100% renewably powered blockchains by the 2025 UNFCCC COP30 conference.

To date, investors include Sheesha Finance, Blockchain Australia, Australian Gulf Capital, Mozaic, Contango Digital Assets, NewTribe Capital, Acreditus Partners, EMGS Group, Sinofy Group, MKD Capital and a grant from Polygon Technology.

About MRHB DeFi:
MRHB DeFi is a halal, decentralized 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.

The diverse team comprises 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.

PokeMine: The Newest Pokemon-Centric GameFi in The Metaverse

Singapore, December 21, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- For most of history, games have had no direct link with finance, and players had nothing to do with investors. GameFi has now enabled the connections between them with mechanisms such as playtoearn, which opens up a brand new sector in the market.

PokeMine is a new action card mobile game with Pokémon as its theme. It is the first Pokémon mobile game where players can independently evolve elves and change their appearance. The overall game restores the Pokémon world in depth, adding a variety of rich gameplay such as the classic Pokémon gacha system, Pokémon cultivation system, checkpoint battles, Z move, Pokémon dispatch (mining), and many others. There are also Budokan, Invasion of Mythical Beasts, Daily Trail, Team Hunting, Battle Tower, Champions Road, Budokan Battle, Quartz Assembly, Alliance War, Cross-server PK and many other gameplay varieties available.

A Deeper Look at PokeMine

Pokemon has created a unique NFT mechanism that enables a user’s NFT to no longer just be a work of art but a way to build characters in a game. PokeMine has 4 different colors of Pokemon NFTs, red being the most powerful, followed by orange, then purple, then blue. More powerful Pokemons are relatively rare. Users can upgrade NFTs through PVE, or upgrade Pokemon with equipment. Equipment in the game can increase the Pokemon’s combat power, dispatch time, etc. PokeMine has many features to explore, and more detailed tutorials will be released when the official version is released.

Breaking Down the Pokemon Gaming Model

Pokemon Exploration: Users can explore the levels to obtain rewards and reach higher levels for their Pokemon. Higher levels, better attributes, and stronger skills make the user’s Pokemon more valuable.

Pokemon Dispatch: Players can get rich rewards by dispatching. The longer the dispatch period, the better the quality of the Pokemon, the more lucrative the rewards, such as diamonds. Using the ‘limit Pokemon Dispatch’ will also double the revenue, depending on the actual profit. Each dispatch line accounts for the dispatch time independently, and each dispatch queue has 4 hours of free dispatch time every day. You can increase any dispatch queue’s available time on the same day by using the “Time aquatic” item produced by [Exploration Level].

In addition, the “limited Pokemon” mechanism and sending “limited Pokemon” can provide a certain percentage of dispatch value bonus for this dispatch queue. The higher the quality of the qualified Pokemon, the greater the increase.

Exploring level and Adventure level: Adventure points and exploration points both require stamina, so it is best to use the stamina of adventure levels in the early stages to level up your team, unlock new features, and then improve your Pokemon overall with appropriate experience gains. Players upgrade Pikachu to unlock to multi-adventure levels. Diamonds are consumed at each level. The amount consumed increases with the progress of the level.

Changeable Combat Strategies: Pokemon types are divided into attack, heal, skill, and defense, and each Pokemon can play according to its positioning characteristics, making the entire gaming experience a battle of wit and courage, and full of strategization.

Cultivate Pokemons: There are more skills that players can use in the game to make you invincible, as well as to increase the level of Pokemons, stars, skill levels, and more so that the Pokemons can continue to grow, allowing players to cultivate a unique and powerful Pokemon from scratch.

Equipment: Elf armor can be upgraded to increase stats. Armor attributes are given to corresponding Pokemons, which is the player’s goal.

Pokemon Center (Gacha Center): Pokemon center’s Gacha System is the main way for players to obtain Pokemon and Pokemon shards. The Pokemon are randomly selected, by consuming diamonds or props. And there are rare Pokemon hidden in it, which can make for surprises.

Pokemon Social Interaction: The built-in gaming environment can also be used for real-time interaction, efficient data interaction, and processing capabilities, so that all users’ data can be displayed in real time. Players can exchange ideas and experiences with other players in the “world” at any time, offering users an immersive experience.

How to start playing Pokemon:

  1. Players need to register an account on https://deme.games, then connect their wallets and e-mails.
  2. To download the game, sign in on the official website: https://deme.games/#/home

The Real World Impact of NFTs in Gaming

Besides gameplay, NFTs have more real-world value. NFT items in games are not just items sold on NFT platforms, but they can deal directly on the markets, making the dealing process much easier than in traditional games.

GameFi is one of the ways that can help users understand Metaverse with more clarity. While its beginnings are in the game industry, in the future, it will have a strong impact on more aspects of human civilization, for instance in finance and socialization. It is estimated that in 2021 the global game market will reach profits of $175.8 billion. It is expected that during 2023, the gains will exceed $200 billion. GameFi is at a relatively early stage of development, and it still has enormous growth potential.

The integration of NFT and GameFi has produced a huge impact on gaming and will continue to have both micro and macro effects on business models as well as virtual assets ownership rights.

With the combination of Pokemon and GameFi, PokeMine is without a doubt, the rebirth of the Pokemon world in the real world.

Successful Fundraising and NFT Deployment

PokeMine was officially launched on December 16th, 2021. After completing its first round of $5 million funding on November 16 2021, more functions have been increasingly launched one after another in stages. The first funding round was financed by GMC, Blockchain Ventures, Hayek Capital, YIBI Exchange, YSL Capital, HKD.COM, NKCCapital, and others. The funds are being used for Pokemon’s technology development and team building so as to fund international growth.

Currently, PokeMine NFTs have been deployed on the Heco-chain and Binance Smart Chain based on the ERC-721 token standard. There are two different types of assets in PokeMine: NFTs and PokeMine Diamonds ($PMD). Users can purchase PokeMine NFTs on Treasureland and purchase $PMD from MDEX and ButterSwap and use PMD to get Pokemon NFTs from the Pokemon center in the game.

The project has also made an official announcement to attract influencers for PokeMine. The influencer initiative purports to give influencers the opportunity to join and share in a large portion of the bonuses. Influencers need to promote across Pokemine social platforms, which include: Telegram, Discord and Twitter.

Pokemine is Poised to be a Leading GameFi Offering

Diverse game scenarios and unique gameplay have made Pokemon a high-profile GameFi project. There are plenty of strategies and methods to explore, both in the PvE scenario and future PVP. Better strategization will not only be more fun for the player, it will lead to a higher return on investment. In the aspects of game quality and tokenomics, PokeMine is one of the leading offerings in this market.

No Deme games will be deployed on centralized service clients like Amazon in the future. All Deme games will be deployed on the DEME mainnet node, a system which is completely decentralized. Technically, that is the biggest advantage of Deme.

Journey To Metaverse

In the future, Deme will access Metaverse and empower more Web 3.0 applications. Meanwhile, Deme will support Cross-chain bridge, Multi-chain wallet, NFT trading markets, and Defi assembly kits. It also sorts the utilities of Metaverse, helps users create decentralized identities, and makes it convenient for users to manage Token and NFT assets easily. What’s more, Deme will let users enjoy all kinds of encrypted applications, and build SocialDAO blocks, open up encrypted application communities, and decentralized governance. Deme will build a highly-decentralized Metaverse platform, inspiring the unlimited vision of every gaming and crypto enthusiast to the encrypted world.

Halal Crypto Platform MRHB DeFi Receives Investment from Australian Gulf Capital

Melbourne, Australia, December 18, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Community-focused platform MRHB DeFi has received an investment from Australian Gulf Capital, a global investment management company, as part of the strategic venture round of the world’s first inclusive and ethical DeFi ecosystem platform.

The funding from Australian Gulf (AG) Capital is not the first from the region, with the Islamic DeFi pioneer having received investments from institutions such as Blockchain Australia and other Aussie angel investors. The AG Capital investment presents further opportunity to expand MRHB DeFi’s presence and growth in this key market.

“We are pleased to have an early-stage opportunity to support first-mover Marhaba in the development of their high-growth, disruptive venture in ethical and halal DeFi,” commented CEO and founder of AG Capital, Salman Masaud. “Our investments are typically focused on a company’s early funding stages when the product is nascent and the upside potential is the greatest. We expect to support the project by bringing our legal, consulting and investment banking expertise to assist the Marhaba team in launching their socially impactful vision.”

The Australian PE/VC funds management company is also currently in the process of establishing a license under ADGM in the UAE, a key growth hub for MRHB DeFi, having recently signed a partnership with local partner Masary Capital to provide halal crypto solutions to the retail and institutional sectors in the UAE.

“Australia Gulf Capital’s ethos of actively supporting startups who align with their ambitious growth vision makes them a strong partner for us,” said MRHB DeFi CEO Naquib Mohammed. “As we continue on our journey of building the world’s first ethical DeFi platform, it is this shared vision and support from amongst our family of investors and partners that will help transform our dream into reality.”
