Crypto Alt coins screening

Assalamu Alaykum

Trust you are well.

I would like to enquire on what basis are crypto ‘coins’ screened? And what is the basis of clasifying them as Halaal and Haraam?

Will the underlying project play a role in its classification as I understand crypto assets to be divorced from the projects unlike holding shares in a company.

Please can you assist.

Jazakallah Khayr Mufti.

Interesting question. I have the same question. I Hope shaikhs will answer soon.


May Allah bless you.

Mufti Faraz Adam has written a book called Introduction to Islamic Fintech where he discusses the screening process for cryptos. You can download the pdf version of the book for free from his Twitter page.
