The web3 advisory group within the world leader in digital banking, Republic, has announced that it is collaborating with Islamic Coin, a Shariah-compliant, ethics-first digital currency that has been highlighted internationally.

White-glove marketing assistance is provided as part of the partnership, along with advisory services on tokenomics, DAO governance, and long-term economic utility value. Additionally, Republic Crypto will support communications with exchanges, market makers, and possible strategic partners.

Republic Crypto provided guidance on developing equitable and Shariah-compliant allocation options, distribution, and other processes to enhance the sustainability aspects in the ecosystem as part of fine-tuning the Islamic Coin value proposition.

Separately, Islamic Coin intends to carry out a Regulation D public token sale on Republic's retail investment platform in September 2023, assisted by OpenDeal Broker. The global Islamic Coin community will benefit in a number of ways after the project goes live, including opportunities to stake their holdings, offer liquidity, and earn tokens during the liquidity mining phase.

Adding to the team’s robust profile, Greg Gigliotti, CEO, Chief Investment Officer, and Founding Partner of Xtellus Advisors.
