Word Count: 2,500 +-10% Task: We’re going to introduce cryptocurrency, we’re creating a new business and designing a new financial product. We also need to focus on how to carry out our business plan, how to design our cryptocurrency to make it more compatible with Shariah(for example, some islamic scholars criticized that cryptocurrency is highly volatile so that the investment in cryptocurrency is very similar to gambling, moreover, the currency itself is not backed up by any physical assets. And these disadvantages make cryptocurrency not accepted by Islamic regulations. Then we can adopt the ‘gold standard’ to moderate our product, we make every unit of our currency pegged with a certain amount of gold, then this problem would be solved) , how to circumvent taboos in Islamic regulations, and how we are going to persuade our investors (if we have) and dispel their doubts/worries about the cryptocurrency we’re going to issue. In addition, what is our strategy to popularize our product, for example, the concept of cryptocurrency is totally new in many Islamic countries, therefore how we could make people have faith in our virtue currency? So my suggestion would be: we need to make our project more like a venture plan/business plan and we need to suppose our teacher is our investor, and we focus on how to persuade him into investing our venture.
