What’s unique about an Islamic account?
The religious strictures of Islam forbid riba (usury) or gharar (gambling). An Islamic trading account is a trading account that complies with Islamic law. Therefore the StormGain Islamic account is swap-free and does not incur interest or any rollover commissions.
The validity of cryptocurrencies in the Islamic banking philosophy has been a matter of discussion among many respected scholars. At first, there was scepticism about this new technology. However, as the understanding of cryptocurrencies developed, Muslim innovators tried to create technologies that would comply with Sharia from their inception. Furthermore, Islamic banking experts also recognised the transformative effect that blockchain and crypto technology could have in empowering individuals in the Muslim world, especially in areas where traditional banking services are underdeveloped or unfair. In this case, cryptocurrency can be seen as desirable according to the principle of maslaha (public interest).
