Hada DBank: The First Blockchain-Based Islamic Bank

Bitcoin Press Release: Eschewing the flawed aspects of conventional banking to advocate the fairer and more transparent ideals of Islamic Banking, Hada Bank aims to be the first digital bank to fuse Islamic banking modules with the innovative features of blockchain technology.

February 1st 2018, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – With the emergence of Islamic banking principles to forge a new future ahead of the current conventional banking and financial systems, Kuala Lumpur-based Hada DBank is working to place itself at the forefront, founded on the Islamic values of fair and transparent risk and responsibility sharing, augmented by the technological innovation of blockchain.

Why Islamic Banking?

Despite seemingly similar operations on the surface, Islamic banking is distinguished from traditional banking in two major principles: the first is sharing of profit and loss, the second is the prohibition of interest by both lenders and investors, discarding all interest-bearing models that have been proven to be unsustainable and complicit in the failures of global banking.

Less risk: Owing to stricter principles with regards to capital requirements and deposit mobilization, Islamic Banking by definition carries less risk and results in more resilient operations than its conventional counterparts.

Transparency: Depositors in Islamic banks are entitled to being fully informed about exactly what and how banks utilize their deposits. Depositors are also democratically allowed to have a say in where their money is invested.

The Hada DBank edge

Because of Islamic Financial Laws prohibiting risky ventures, Hada DBank will have a maximum Liability to Asset ratio of 1:3. All savings will always be backed by valuable assets such as precious metals, and are fully insured according to Islamic banking principles.

All users will have access to a full-feature personal banking service including:

– free encrypted account and e-Wallet, accessible via smartphones and non-smart mobiles.

– savings accounts at a probable 5% Hibah (discretionary gift usually based on business performance) per annum, with no withdrawal fee.

– zero-fee transfer or remittance of funds (both fiat and cryptocurrency) between savings and e-Wallet

– HADA Exchange, featuring zero-fee on cryptocurrency exchanges, or on major crytpo-fiat currency exchanges.

– 0% loan interest with a probable 10% investment return (based on fixed-rate Islamic investment product according to Murabahah (Cost-Plus Sale) and Tawarruq (Commodity Cost-Plus Sale) Islamic financial concepts).

– Physical and virtual debit cards with cashback and discount programs with affiliate partners and merchants.

Users will also have access to Bot HUDA, a financial management bot that helps them manage their spending, income and financial goals. Users can also take advantage of sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) in the form of a personal financial advisor (HADI) that can help make informed investment decisions based on objective advice and assessment.

Caring and personal

Hada DBank’s core values of caring and personal shapes its services, transactions, interactions and business operations. Recognizing that its customers are the backbone of a bank, Hada DBank aspires to care, working to improve lives, rather than simply to profit from them. It will work hard to personalize services and attention, encouraging and fostering the great diversity of needs and requirements from each individual customer.

Far from exclusion, Islamic banking is not simply for Muslims. Islamic banking principles urge for universal inclusion and carry in its name a distinct message of transparency and risk-sharing for all.

Media partnership with Bitcoin PR Buzz

As a pioneering digital bank aiming to augment Islamic banking modules with blockchain technology, Hada DBank is cognizant of the need for widespread advocacy and awareness-raising of its innovative project.

As such, it is proud to announce a partnership with Bitcoin PR Buzz as its strategic media partner. As the world’s first cryptocurrency and blockchain PR agency, it benefits from its intimacy and reputation with various information distribution platforms such as CryptoCoinsNews, The Merkle, Coinspeaker, CoinIdol and many other international Bitcoin news sites. In addition, its network extends to several hundred online news outlets.

Bitcoin PR Buzz welcomed the new partnership, saying: “We are excited to support the world’s first blockchain-based Islamic bank.”

With a solid media partnership formed, Hada DBank looks forward to increased visibility and heightened presence in the industry.

Hada DBank development and HADACoin

To raise the funds necessary for the full development of products and services of the world’s first blockchain-based Islamic digital bank, Hada DBank will host a crowdfunding campaign through the HADACoin token sale.

HADACoin will be the native digital asset to enable users to conduct basic and daily banking transactions, convertible to and from other fiat and cryptocurrencies within the Hada DBank platform and debit card. Based on the Ethereum platform, HADACoin benefits from the transparency of a public blockchain and the security of smart contracts.

HADACoin will be sold during the pre-sale at increasingly higher rates adjusting to supply, starting at rate of 1 ETH = 2,000 HADACoins for the first 10 million tokens, gradually reducing every 10 million tokens. A flash sale is now live, with ETH granting participants with 4000 tokens, for the 1st 1 million Coins

With the recent acquisition of several strategic partners, including BPRB, Hada DBank has decided to extend its pre-sale to February 28th, 2018 to take advantage of enhanced marketing and market penetration.

Once the Hada DBank platform launches, HADACoin will be trading on the F1Cryptos exchange  the first of many exchange platform partnerships in the pipeline.
