Crypto Question: Cryptocurrency trading

Wa alaykum salaam,

The exchange is still being finalised and will be launching in the coming one to two months Insha’Allah.

Looking forward to it.
In the meantime which excahnge would you recommend ?

Can you also share your view on ADA / Cardano ?

As I said, it depends on the crypto you want to buy. Certain crypto is offered by certain exchange and not offered by certain exchange.

As for ADA, sorry, I don’t have any information.

Assalam-o-alaikum. Could you please clarify regarding the Shariah compliancy of Bitcoin?
Is is Halal to trade Bitcoin for profit?


Wa alaykum salaam,

Would you advise on the permissibility of staking Coin (CRO)?

Is it permissible to but crypto for card merchants such as CRO/ Revolut who charge a fee for membership?

As they are generally a debit/ prepay platform, they do not seem to charge interest on borrowed amounts.

By your previous answer regarding Celsius Network Sharia compliance, I would now assume that any investment in the DeFi (Decentralized Finance) may be prohibited for muslims by its concept ?

Allah knows best
