Following up on the recent Shariah Compliance that Ethereum received from Amanie Advisors, ETHKL is inviting you to learn about Islamic Finance and how it relates to blockchain!

Ashraf is a distinguished professional currently working at CIMB where he acts as Director and Head of the Shariah & Governance Department (you can read more about his curriculum here: http://www.malaysiagif.com/speakers/ashraf-gomma-ali/ ).

His presentation will cover the foundational principles of the Islamic approach to finance and then go on to identify key issues emerging from the coming together of Islamic Finance and blockchain.

We believe this topic to be extremely relevant as KL is a hub of Islamic Finance, and because both Islamic Finance and blockchain have a similar claim to doing finance in a way that is different, -and better!- than the conventional system.

We hope to see you all there!
