The system is based on an algorithm to maintain the stability of assets traded on organized markets. It can be adapted for any kind of asset type, including shares, sukuk, and digital currencies, as well as central banks’ digital currencies (CBDCs).

The in-depth analysis conducted by the Institute demonstrated the system’s potential to significantly reduce the volatility of the traded asset without the need for capital or external reserves.

This project aligns with the Institute’s strategic objective to provide fintech knowledge solutions to the Islamic finance industry in IsDB Member Countries and worldwide.

The Knowledge Solutions Team at the Institute is leading the project in partnership with SettleMint, a blockchain transformation company that supports developers to integrate blockchain technologies into applications. The company was established in 2016 in Belgium, with offices in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, India, and Singapore.
