In continuation to the theme of blockchain acceptance in Islamic countries, OneGram project from Dubai, according to Crypto Insider, is the one that received two awards in a week from two different non-intersecting parties.
As the official webpage of OneGram states, each of its coins is backed by one gram of gold at launch. Each transaction made with the mentioned cryptocurrency generates a small fee that can be later reinvested to increase gold reserves and the amount of gold connected to single OneGram token. “In Gold We Trust”, that is the slogan of the company. In the characteristics of the cryptocurrency it is also mentioned that it is the first one to be certified in compliance with Shariah rules.
Two weeks ago a cryptocurrency company X8 from Switzerland got a certification from the Shariyah Review Bureau, licensed by Bahrain’s central bank.
