MRHB DeFi and Coinsbit India Partner to Bring Halal Crypto to India’s 200 Million Muslims

Melbourne, Australia, Aug 30, 2021 -/DailyVoice/- The world’s first halal DeFi ecosystem MRHB DeFi is collaborating with leading Indian cryptocurrency trading platform Coinsbit to bring crypto-asset opportunities to India’s huge population of 200 million Muslims, driving further participation in the blockchain economy.

MRHB DeFi’s vision of an inclusive crypto-verse, follows Islamic ethical finance principles but is suitable for those looking for a socially conscious blockchain that avoids interest, usury, exploitation and other business practices deemed unethical.

Being Halal means that MRHB DeFi operates within the highly ethical constraints of Shariah law which broadly implies that all business decisions are conducted in conjunction with Islamic teachings which promote inclusion, access, and faith, and function simply and transparently for the benefit of its users.

A Visionary Partnership to Serve 200 Million Muslims

India is home to 200 million Muslims constituting 10% of the global population and is the world’s third-largest Muslim community. This group is often excluded from the cryptoverse due to their faith-driven principles regarding financial and business conduct.

What this partnership means:

  • Coinsbit would be the first Indian exchange to introduce a certified Shariah-compliant project to the Muslim Community. MRHB will conduct an initial exchange offering (IEO) on the Coinsbit Exchange during launch and introduce the blockchain’s native token, $MHB (Marhaba Token), to the global community
  • Coinsbit is headquartered in Hyderabad which is geographically close to the large metropolitan community of Hyderabad & Bangalore that has a sizable of Muslim population
  • MRHB DeFi will integrate Coinsbit’s portal with its app (Sahal Wallet), enabling users to directly use Coinsbit for trading crypto-assets.
  • Coinsbit will give the users a trading platform, where $MHB (Marhaba Token) would be available to the Indian Community
  • MRHB DeFi would also lead marketing activities for the exchange in the fast-growing Australian market
  • Both the partners will gain substantially from each other’s marketing and community growth activities

A Shared Mission for an Inclusive Cryptoverse

“Blockchain and DeFi have exploded in popularity in 2021, and we forecast this stratospheric growth to continue. That’s why we’re excited to be teaming up with one of India’s premier cryptocurrency exchanges to offer MRHB DeFi products and services to everyone across the Indian subcontinent who are looking for a true, ethical alternative to the existing platforms in the cryptoverse,” says Naquib Mohammed, MRHB DeFi Founder & CEO.

“Blockchain offers amazing potential for all communities. We aim to deliver this potential to those who may have previously struggled to access or been cautious to use DeFi products and services. We also hope to provide them with all of the rich opportunities for growth, expansion and development that DeFi offers,” adds Naquib.

“We’re excited about embarking on this shared journey with MRHB. Islamic DeFi and Shariah-based crypto financial products are an area of extraordinary growth and potential for India. We’re committed to delivering MRHB DeFi’s visionary range of services and products to our clients across our continent,” says Ravneet Kaur, CEO of Coinsbit India.

She continues, “The time is right for a blockchain project that is based on the tenets of faith, inclusion and access for all, while being transparent and simple to use. MRHB DeFi has demonstrated to us that they are committed to a long-term vision for ethical people around the world no matter what their faith is.”

Asian countries are outpacing the rest of the world in terms of cryptocurrency adoption and India has ranked second in the global cryptocurrency adoption index, according to the 2021 Global Crypto Adoption Index by blockchain data platform Chainalysis. Indians have invested more than five times the amount of the previous year and the momentum is encouraging.

Crypto adoption is on the rise in India and the Indian exchanges WazirX, CoinDCX and Coinswitch Kuber have doubled their user base between January and March 2021.

Coinsbit India started its operations recently and has already captured market attention by onboarding a million users in around three months.

About MRHB DeFi:
MRHB DeFi is a halal, decentralised finance platform built to embody the true spirit of an “Ethical and Inclusive DeFi” by following faith-based financial and business principles, where all excluded communities can benefit from the full empowerment potential of DeFi.

Based on the tenets of blockchain such as trust, transparency, and security, MRHB DeFi has encapsulated universally applicable principles of Shariah into those tenets of blockchain to render a suite of offerings. It is a complete DeFi ecosystem whose products, protocols and crypto-assets are governed primarily by the ethical, inclusive, sustainable and charitable investment principles associated with the Islamic faith or ‘Islamic Finance’ (‘IF’ as it is commonly known).

The diverse team is comprised of researchers, technocrats, influencers, Islamic fintech experts & business entrepreneurs, who came together to ensure that MRHB DeFi prevails in a manner that will impact society as a whole, essentially bridging the gap between the faith-conscious communities and the blockchain world.

Miller & Miller’s Online Auctions Sept. 11-12 will Feature Toys, Nostalgia, Breweriana, Advertising

New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada, August 28, 2021 -/DailyVoice/- Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. will hold back-to-back auctions the weekend of September 11th -12th. The Saturday, September 11th event will be a Toys & Nostalgia sale, featuring the Bryan Beatty collection. The Sunday, September 12th sale will be an Advertising & Historic Objects auction, featuring the Scott Vanner breweriana collection.

Both auctions are online-only and will have a start time of 9 am Eastern time. The Bryan Beatty collection of toys and communication-related memorabilia includes a well-rounded offering of cast iron and tin litho toys from the Victorian to the Atomic era. Mr. Beatty’s collection also includes many radios, microphones and typewriters, with examples spanning the 20th century.

“The Bryan Beatty collection is a brand that will outlive this auction,” predicted Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “His guiding principle can be summed up in these three words – condition, condition and condition. Unlike most university professors, Bryan used the breaks between lectures to search for toys and nostalgia. He collected like he taught – academically.”

Scott Vanner’s collection of Canadian breweriana includes a large assortment of beer trays and assorted advertising from the 1890s to the 1940s. A generous offering of live steam models will also be sold, the highlight being a finely engineered 7 ¼ inch gauge steam locomotive. Other categories in the collection that will be sold include advertising signs, bicycles and comic books.

The items in Mr. Vanner’s collection are “just the way collectors like them,” Mr. Miller said – “one hundred percent fresh to the market.” The 7 ¼ inch gauge steam locomotive could easily end up being the top lot of the two days, as it carries a stout pre-sale estimate of $15,000-$20,000 (all prices quoted in this report are in Canadian dollars). It previously sold at Christie’s in 1985.

The steam locomotive is a well presented 7 ¼ inch gauge model of the Great Western Railway 4-6-0 locomotive and tender No. 1011 (“County of Chester”). It was rebuilt and reboilered by F. West and Lee Green and comes with a brazed superheated copper boiler with fittings, including water and pressure gauges, safety, blower, twin injector, whistle, clack and blowdown valves.

Two Canadian steam engine models from very different eras carry identical estimates of $2,000-$3,000. One is a model of a ‘Southern’ heavy-duty rocking valve mill engine, with continuous rope belts, designed and built by H.A. Sharrar in 1971. It was a “Best Steam Display” winner at the Milton steam show. The other is a highly detailed scale model of the steam engine that ran machinery for the Dominion Organ & Piano Co. (Bowman, Ont.), built by R. Fishleigh in 1890.

Other noteworthy Day 2 offerings include a Worth and Martin (Toronto) one-cent bull’s head perfume dispenser (“Take the bull by the horns!”), made in 1902, solid brass with a glass mirror and able to accept large Canadian cents (estimate: $6,000-$9,000); and a Wayne Model 60 American made Chevrolet gas pump dating to the 1940s, 92 inches tall and professionally restored to Chevrolet, including paint and reproduction globe lenses (estimate: $6,000-$9,000).

A Wurlitzer Model 1015 jukebox, made in America in 1946, has an estimate of $6,000-$8,000. The Model 1015 is one of the most iconic jukeboxes ever made. This one is a fine, functioning example and comes with 24 period rock ‘n’ roll records. Also, an 1869 French style Boneshaker bicycle with a painted iron frame, wood rims and professionally restored wheels, is expected to speed away for $3,000-$3,500. The rear brake is activated by twisting the handlebars forward.

A Molson’s Beer clock, made for the French-Canadian market in the 1930s, porcelain with a screened metal clock dial marked “Made in Germany”, should bring $4,000-$6,000. Very few porcelain advertising signs were appointed with high quality mechanical clocks. Also, a Black Cat Shoe Polish lithographed tin clock, made in Canada in the early 20th century, marked “MacDonald Mfg. Co. Limited, Toronto”, non-functioning, has an estimate of $2,000-$3,000.

An English 1913 J. Smith & Sons tower clock having a cast iron frame with steel components, rescued and restored after the post office building it served in the town of Bowmanville from 1912-1965 was torn down, should achieve $3,000-$5,000. Also from England, a 1950s-era Austin Junior J-40 pedal car, restored, featuring a functioning horn and headlights, is estimated to bring $2,000-$3,000. Nearly 32,000 of the J-40 pedal cars were produced from 1950 to 1971.

A Miller High Life Beer two-sided porcelain hanging sign, made in the 1930s and originally designed to accommodate bands of neon surrounding the perimeter, 35 ½ inches by 46 inches, is expected to reach $3,000-$5,000; while a circa 1920s mechanical commercial cigar humidor showcase, made in America of quarter sawn oak with etched plate glass panels and nickel-plated trim, tagged “The Loudon Cigar Case” with various patent dates, should realize $3,500-$6,000.

Back to Day 1. One item certain to be a hit with bidders (but not part of the Beatty collection) is a Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger baseball bat signed in blue sharpie marker by Hall of Fame legend Mickey Mantle (estimate: $2,000-$2,500). Included is an official 1992 MLB photo of Mantle and a 2001 letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA that’s signed by James J. Spence, Jr.

From the Beatty collection, a 1950s-era American RCA Type 77 DX ribbon microphone made from brushed steel and chrome, in the rare and iconic “pill” design, mounted to a contemporary powder coated base, should command $2,000-$3,000. Also, a circa 1940s/‘50s RCA Type 91B microphone and an MI4092 desk stand, having a powder coated and brushed chrome base and mounted to a rare, correct base, 9 inches tall (mike on stand) has an estimate of $800-$1,200.

Internet bidding for the 875-lot auctions will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, as well as the Miller & Miller website: www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com. Bidders can tune in to the live webcast on both days to watch lots close in real time. Phone and absentee bids will be accepted.

South Coast Improvement, Co. Completes First Phase of 40B Affordable Housing Conversion Project at Serenity Brewster

Brewster, MA and Marion, MA, Aug 27, 2021 -/DailyVoice/- South Coast Improvement Company, a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently completed Phase 1 of a project to convert the former Wingate Residences assisted living and nursing facility into Serenity Brewster, rental housing for those ages 55 and over. The property, located at 873 Harwich Road (Route 124), is being developed by the Elevation Financial Group of Orlando, Florida.

Elevation purchased the property in December 2020 with the intent of converting the 119,016 square foot building into rental properties for people 55 and over. Phase 1 of the project featured the conversion of 41 rooms. South Coast Improvement Company completed that phase on July 1, 2021.

“The mission of creating affordable housing for seniors is embedded deep in our DNA. By bringing an outstanding Brewster property back to life through Elevation’s commitment to safe, clean and affordable housing, everyone wins,” Chris King, CEO of Elevation Financial Group.

The second phase of the project will convert the remainder of the 132 units planned for Serenity Brewster. Twenty percent of those units will be deed-restricted or 40B–double the required 10.

“Converting space in an assisted living facility is something we’ve had extensive experience with. This project is a little different than a lot of those as it is unoccupied and the conversion of the facility into housing involves a 40B,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company. “We’re grateful to Elevation for the opportunity to work on this project and deliver it on time and under budget.”

Nye & Company’s Online Chic and Antique Estate Treasures Auction, September 8-9, is Packed with Fine and Decorative Arts

Bloomfield, NJ, USA, August 25, 2021 -/DailyVoice/- Nye & Company Auctioneers’ two-day, online Chic and Antique Estate Treasures auction features property from the Bishop-Peabody-Metcalf family, the NAMITS collection, the estate of Peter Benchley (the author of JAWS, Princeton, N.J.), and several private collections. It is slated for Wednesday and Thursday, September 8th and 9th, at 10 am Eastern both days. Up for bid are thousands of lots of fine and decorative arts.

Real time Internet bidding and absentee bidding will be provided by the popular platforms LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com, as well as the Nye & Company website: www.nyeandcompany.com. Telephone bidding will also be available on a limited basis.

“This is going to be a special sale,” said Andrew Holter, Director of Business Development at Nye & Company Auctioneers, adding, “It is sure to delight collectors, dealers and institutions alike and features an exceptionally curated selection of property from private collections, with an emphasis on American and European furniture, books, folk art, textiles, Chinese and Japanese works of art, silver and jewelry. For those who prefer contemporary and modern to the traditional, there is also a nice selection of chic furniture, lighting and carpets.”

Headlining the auction are works from a private collection based in New England. The collection features a delightful group of early American furniture, folk art and Northeastern Indian baskets. Of particular note is a richly figured maple Queen Anne high chest. The face of the chest is so vigorously figured, the eyes can’t help but dance with delight.

The collection also has two early mirrors that are rare survivors and gems. The first is an early 18th century diminutive looking glass that is in untouched condition and a real survivor of the late William and Mary/early Queen Anne period. Equally exciting is a William and Mary japanned courting mirror. Only traces and shadows of the japanning remain, but this mirror is potentially a rare example of Boston japanning and a true survivor.

The collectors also amassed a superb collection of colored and potato-stamped Northeastern Indian woven splint baskets. The colors, shapes, sizes and condition are truly striking and exciting to see. For those that appreciate folk art and collect textiles, the collection also includes a rather large selection of quilts from the 18th through the early 20th century. Highlights include a terrific “Whig rose” example, as well as “log cabin” and “flying geese” patterned quilts.

Continuing along the theme of folk art, the NAMITS collection features a superb gilt and paint-decorated zinc and iron optician’s trade sign. Purchased from the highly respected dealer, Alan Katz, this piece can’t help but garner collectors’ attention with its superbly painted eyes. Also included in the sale are some exceptional painted cast-iron banks acquired from noted dealers, Gemini Antiques. The Clown and Globe bank is a personal favorite and conjures up fond childhood memories of the circus and the joys that the clowns brought to the audience.

The collection also contains a broad and diverse selection of inlaid tea caddies, boxes and miniature chests of drawers from both sides of the Atlantic. The collector’s tastes also dipped into the contemporary and modern design aesthetic and include a terrific pair of hemp rope and wood Christian Astuguevielle designed chairs. These tall-backed chairs are reminiscent of weeping willow trees that can be seen in early folk art needlework and paintings and are a nice complement to the folk art in the auction.

Another collection with a strong hold in the traditional decorative arts is being offered by descendants of the early New England Bishop-Peabody-Metcalf families. Steeped with a rich New England history and tales of global travel, this family amassed a superb collection. Of note is a collection of Asian arts that includes carved jade, Japanese baskets and carved boxes that were part of the Heber R. Bishop collection. Bishop assembled one of the finest collections of carved jade in the world. A large portion of his collection was bequeathed to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1902 and is recognized as a hallmark collection. Of particular note is a cast bronze vase that possibly dates from the 16th century.

Dovetailing nicely with this group is a selection of Asian arts that were collected by Charles Shultz, the celebrated collector from Montclair, NJ. This serendipitous connection with the aforementioned family was buoyed by fact that Shultz purchased several items that were part of the Heber R. Bishop auction held in 1906 at the American Art Galleries in New York City. Two spectacularly weaved Japanese bamboo baskets by the celebrated basket weaver, Tanabe Chikuunsai I (1877-1937), are woven so tightly and with such precision, one can’t help but marvel at the craftsmanship. Also acquired at the Bishop auction was a great pair of Samurai warrior chainmail sleeves.

Further strengthening the connection with the Far East is an exceptional Chinese Queen Anne carved hardwood armchair. This delicately carved chair was made in the George II manner and is a magnificent example of Chinese artisans imitating the English Georgian style at the height of the Queen Anne period. Representing the Chippendale period, Nye & Company will be offering a boldly sculpted block-front chest of drawers from Boston, circa 1770. This exceptional chest stands proudly and is wonderfully proportioned and balanced. The large original brass back plates would have reflected the dancing and shimmering light of 18th century candles.

The sale also features a large selection of printed books dating back as early as the 16th century. Included is a selection of early American printings and Revolutionary war period books and period travel books with pull-out maps. There is also an exceptional early topographical map exhibiting the plan of Fort Washington (now Fort Knyphausen), surveyed by Claude Joseph Sautheir, published by permission of Right Honorable, the Commissioners of Trade of Plantations by William Faden, 1777, “A Plan of Attack of Fort Washington, now Fort Knyphausen, and of the American Lines on New York Island by the King’s Troops on the 16th of November 1776.” For those who like American and English literature, there are several large sets, including works by Washington Irving, Rudyard Kipling, Herman Melville and Charles Dickens.

Fine art is also well represented in this auction. There are several works that were exhibited at the famed Salmagundi Club in New York City. Many works descended in the Clinedinst family who count the highly acclaimed artist, Benjamin West, as one of their descendants.

If traditional furniture is not your preference, fear not. There is a wonderful selection of contemporary furniture, including a pair of Weiman kidney-shaped sofas, terrific dining tables and chairs. The sale is also brightened by a large selection of chandeliers and lighting by designers such as Sean Lavin, Thomas O’Brien and Chapman & Myers.

Speaking of bright objects, the sale includes one of Nye & Company’s largest offerings of silver and jewelry for the year. Of particular note is an incredibly large and sophisticated early Tiffany & Company sterling silver punch bowl with Bacchante handles. This piece is a pure showstopper and hails from an old Virginia family. Equally impressive is a sterling silver presentation repousse footed bowl, Bigelow-Kennard & Co., Boston. Bold and impressive, this footed bowl would have been the envy of all dining guests seated at the table.

Highlights from the estate jewelry and watches category include pieces by Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Company and Spiral Brequet Remontion, plus unmarked turn-of-the century engagement rings comprising old-mine diamonds from private collections.

People can bid in absentia and online. An online preview is being held from August 25th thru September 8th-9th at www.nyeandcompany.com, www.liveauctioneers.com, www.bidsquare.com and www.invaluable.com.

The Dr. Mead Shaffer Collection of Early American Antiques will be Sold Online, September 24th

Garnet Valley, PA, USA, August 24, 2021 -/DailyVoice/- Briggs Auction is pleased to offer the Dr. Mead Shaffer collection of early American antiques on Friday, September 24th. Bidding is online only, through Briggs Auction’s Bid at Briggs platform and through Live Auctioneers.com. Pre-auction/absentee bids will be accepted until 10 am on the date of auction, September 24th, when real-time online bidding will begin on both platforms.

Dr. Shaffer, a resident of Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, is a noted preservationist, historian and collector. The auction will include Dr. Shaffer’s extensive collection of colonial and early American and regional antiques, colonial cookware, folk and decorative arts and much more. Briggs Auction has an app to make bidding easy and convenient; simply search Briggs Auction in the Apple App Store, or on Google Play.

“Dr. Shaffer has been a staple in the antiques community for over forty years, and his collection is truly one to be admired,” said Stephen Turner, the owner of Briggs Auction, Inc. “We are honored Dr. Shaffer chose us to handle this important and historic collection, and we hope that it will appeal to a wide range of collectors, history buffs and anyone who’s looking for a piece of early America and/or local Pennsylvania.”

Dr. Shaffer grew up on a farm in Wayne County, Pennsylvania, which he later gifted to the state. It is now known as the Varden Conservation Area. In 1960, after college at Penn State and a stint in the Army as a veterinarian, he moved to Delaware County, where he opened his (still thriving) veterinary practice. Shortly after, he took up residence in a home on the circa 1721 Booth farm in Bethel Township, also known as the Garret-Booth-Cheyney House, which he relished as much for its ties to colonial America as the farmland itself. “I am obsessed with history”, Dr. Shaffer said, and his collection reflects this passion.

Highlights of the collection include early cupboards and cabinets, including an 18th century Pennsylvania red painted corner cupboard with star and moon decoration; a Pennsylvania blue-painted two-door cupboard with rat-tail hinges; an 18th century two-part Dutch cupboard in salmon paint with pie shelf; and an 18th century possible Eastern Shore, Md., one-piece corner cupboard with a 12-light glass door top.

Also included is a fine selection of early and 19th century chairs, including a set of ten Bucks County, Pa., bamboo-turned chairs attributed to Samuel Moon; several 18th century Philadelphia low-back Windsor armchairs, many with grain painted seats; early Philadelphia Windsor settees; and wonderful benches.

Also sold will be a Chippendale walnut desk; an 18th century Chippendale pine blanket chest and an 18th century walnut hanging wall cupboard from Oley Valley (Berks County), with a self-locking lower drawer.

Whimsical early American folk-art pieces are sure to generate excitement, including carvings by William Ellis; a carved and painted passenger pigeon perched on a branch; a carved and polychrome-decorated rabbit figure; a carved wooden sculpture of a standing pig with a painted surface; a carved wooden sculpture of a fish mounted onto a later whalebone and wood base; and a collection of carved decoys.

The Dr. Shaffer collection will also feature many pieces of local stoneware, including jugs, crocks, water coolers and more, by makers such as H. Weston (Honesdale, Pa.); Sipe, Nichols & Co. (Williamsport, Pa.); O.H. Smith & Bros. (Flemington, N.J.), as well as others. Also up for bid will be a fine assortment of 19th century toleware and early American metal ware, including kitchen wares, utensils and other items.

Live, in-person previews will be held on Wednesday, September 22nd, from 1-5 pm; and on Thursday, September 23rd from 1-5 pm, both times Eastern, with no appointment needed. The previews will be held at the Garret-Booth-Cheyney House and barn, located at 1645 Bethel Road, Garnet Valley, PA 19060.
