MRHB DeFi Announces Strategic Investment from Acreditus Partners, Appoints Khalid Howlader Chairman of MRHB DeFi Governance Board

Melbourne, Australia, Sep 9, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- On the heels of the strategic investment received from UAE-based Sheesha Finance last week, the world’s first halal decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem MRHB DeFi is pleased to announce yet another strategic investment – this time from Dubai-based angel innovation investors Acreditus Partners.

Passionate Supporters of Innovation and Decentralized Finance

Encompassing both investment and partnership, the deal will also include the appointment of Acreditus Founder Mr Khalid Howladar as Chairman of the MRHB DeFi Governance Board.

A bespoke investment and advisory firm, Acreditus are passionate supporters of innovative start-ups and believe in the potential of decentralized finance to democratise access to the crypto-economy.

MRHB’s strong community and ethics focus marks them out as different from the majority of the DeFi projects that are saturating the sector. Indeed these values are consistent with those of Acreditus whose partners are experts in their respective fields and offer a deep pool of advisory experience and skills in addition to angel capital.

“MRHB DeFi’s ethical and inclusive community vision for the cryptoverse marks a significant difference from other projects in this space that are fraught with failure and fraud,” says Mr Howladar, Acreditus Founder.

“When combined with the extraordinary potential to revolutionise finance I felt compelled to support them on their journey with both advice and then capital once I was able to assess the extraordinary combination of ethics and capabilities of the team,” he adds.

Part of Mr Howladar’s role will be to try and ensure high standards of corporate ethics, governance and risk management as the company seeks to mature from bootstrapped start-up to a more institutional quality business. In addition, his prior senior experience in the Islamic Banking sector will support more regulatory and institutional partnership building.

“MRHB DeFi are extremely proud that Acreditus Partners have chosen to support our venture on two fronts,” says Naquib Mohammed, MRHB DeFi Founder & CEO. “As a young firm, we have many challenges ahead on all aspects of our business and Khalid’s seasoned experience across multiple areas such as governance, risk and communications continue to prove invaluable to our team and hence a natural Chairman for our Governance Board.”

MRHB DeFi and Coinsbit India Partner to Bring Halal Crypto to India’s 200 Million Muslims

Melbourne, Australia, Aug 30, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- The world’s first halal DeFi ecosystem MRHB DeFi is collaborating with leading Indian cryptocurrency trading platform Coinsbit to bring crypto-asset opportunities to India’s huge population of 200 million Muslims, driving further participation in the blockchain economy.

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

Being Halal means that MRHB DeFi operates within the highly ethical constraints of Shariah law which broadly implies that all business decisions are conducted in conjunction with Islamic teachings which promote inclusion, access, and faith, and function simply and transparently for the benefit of its users.

A Visionary Partnership to Serve 200 Million Muslims

India is home to 200 million Muslims constituting 10% of the global population and is the world’s third-largest Muslim community. This group is often excluded from the cryptoverse due to their faith-driven principles regarding financial and business conduct.

What this partnership means:

  • Coinsbit would be the first Indian exchange to introduce a certified Shariah-compliant project to the Muslim Community. MRHB will conduct an initial exchange offering (IEO) on the Coinsbit Exchange during launch and introduce the blockchain’s native token, $MHB (Marhaba Token), to the global community
  • Coinsbit is headquartered in Hyderabad which is geographically close to the large metropolitan community of Hyderabad & Bangalore that has a sizable of Muslim population
  • MRHB DeFi will integrate Coinsbit’s portal with its app (Sahal Wallet), enabling users to directly use Coinsbit for trading crypto-assets.
  • Coinsbit will give the users a trading platform, where $MHB (Marhaba Token) would be available to the Indian Community
  • MRHB DeFi would also lead marketing activities for the exchange in the fast-growing Australian market
  • Both the partners will gain substantially from each other’s marketing and community growth activities

A Shared Mission for an Inclusive Cryptoverse

“Blockchain and DeFi have exploded in popularity in 2021, and we forecast this stratospheric growth to continue. That’s why we’re excited to be teaming up with one of India’s premier cryptocurrency exchanges to offer MRHB DeFi products and services to everyone across the Indian subcontinent who are looking for a true, ethical alternative to the existing platforms in the cryptoverse,” says Naquib Mohammed, MRHB DeFi Founder & CEO.

“Blockchain offers amazing potential for all communities. We aim to deliver this potential to those who may have previously struggled to access or been cautious to use DeFi products and services. We also hope to provide them with all of the rich opportunities for growth, expansion and development that DeFi offers,” adds Naquib.

“We’re excited about embarking on this shared journey with MRHB. Islamic DeFi and Shariah-based crypto financial products are an area of extraordinary growth and potential for India. We’re committed to delivering MRHB DeFi’s visionary range of services and products to our clients across our continent,” says Ravneet Kaur, CEO of Coinsbit India.

She continues, “The time is right for a blockchain project that is based on the tenets of faith, inclusion and access for all, while being transparent and simple to use. MRHB DeFi has demonstrated to us that they are committed to a long-term vision for ethical people around the world no matter what their faith is.”

Asian countries are outpacing the rest of the world in terms of cryptocurrency adoption and India has ranked second in the global cryptocurrency adoption index, according to the 2021 Global Crypto Adoption Index by blockchain data platform Chainalysis. Indians have invested more than five times the amount of the previous year and the momentum is encouraging.

Crypto adoption is on the rise in India and the Indian exchanges WazirX, CoinDCX and Coinswitch Kuber have doubled their user base between January and March 2021.

Coinsbit India started its operations recently and has already captured market attention by onboarding a million users in around three months.
