Stellar approved as ‘Sharia Compliant’ by the Central Bank of Bahrain: XLM/USD resumes the uptrend

  • Stellar.org can now show the Sharia compliance certification on its website.
  • A bullish trend is forming on the chart, besides, Stellar price has made it above the 38.2% Fibo.

The Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) is reported to have approved one of the top ten cryptocurrency projects, Stellar.org as Sharia Compliant. This news means that Stellar is approved to work under the Islamic law. Significantly, Stellar.org can show the Sharia certification without conflicting with the CBB. Moreover, the project can be used within the Islamic faith in the country.

The approval is not only a huge milestone for Stellar, but also for the entire cryptocurrency industry. The use of virtual currencies in Islamic faith societies is seen as unregulated and has always carried with it a cloud of uncertainty. This development will definitely open the way for cryptocurrency enthusiasts within the faith to carry out activities confidently within the law. A spokesperson from Stellar is reported by the News of Bahrain to have said:

“We advance our mission of financial access and inclusion by obtaining a Sharia compliance certification for the Stellar technology and network. The Shariyah Review Bureau (SRB), a leading international Sharia advisory agency licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain, has reviewed the properties and applications of Stellar and has promulgated guidance and guidelines that enable Sharia-compliant applications of Stellar technology in Islamic financial institutions.”
