GoldX earned the certification thanks to its transparency, security, and speed of transactions. The platform gives crypto dealers the opportunity to trade gold, the oldest stable coin in the world.
- Islamic financing app
Zakat can be defined as a form of tax implemented in Muslim countries and is part of one of the four pillars of Shariah. Muslim people have to give money to official institutions that will distribute this money to those who need it the most. However, challenges arose when it comes to the management and transparency of the given money.
To address these issues, representatives at the International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF) partnered up with Dublin-based financial technology company, AidTech, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to create an Islamic social financing application based on blockchain technology. The app was well-received as it won first prize in a competition organized by the Islamic Development Bank Group and the IE Business School in Madrid in 2018. When app users want to donate zakat, they simply have to choose the school of thought they follow in the list provided by the app. After answering a few questions about where they want the money to go, they can choose what project it will be used for. Thanks to blockchain, their transactions are secure and transparent.
