DUBAI, 14 November 2017 – HelloGold is excited to announce that it won the Critics’ Choice Most Innovative Islamic Retail Product Award. Organised by the UK-based financial intelligence house, Cambridge IF Analytica, the award recognised the platform’s ground-breaking features, which include being the world’s first Shariah-compliant certified online digital gold platform.
With its initial launch in Malaysia, HelloGold provides an app-based platform that allows customers to buy, store, and sell physical investment-grade gold with as little as RM1. Since its launch in April 2017, the app already numbers 15,000 downloads in Malaysia.
Robin Lee, CEO, commented, “HelloGold was created to make gold and other sophisticated financial products affordable and available to everyone. We are proud that our achievements are being recognised. But, this is just the beginning – in the last two months, the HelloGold Foundation closed its public token sale and launched the first fully-operational and 100% audited gold-backed token (GBT) in the world. And, that’s not all – both HelloGold and the HelloGold Foundation will be launching even more disruptive products over the next six months, including a market-beating Shariah-compliant loan product. Watch this space!”
He added, “The award comes at an opportune time as HelloGold intends to launch its Shariah-compliant platform in the Middle East and North Africa in 2018. Being a recipient of this illustrious accolade will certainly lend much credence to us as being the digital gold platform to use.”
