The startup has also recently won the title of ‘Best New Islamic Crypto Global Platform’ at the Global Brands Awards (in the Crypto/Forex categories).
Organized by the Asian Television Awards, the GlitzyTribe Twitter AMAs feature Web3 industry professionals who discuss trends and challenges in the space. Glitzy Tribe is the official NFT community of the Asian Television Awards, who support the Glitzy Tribe NFT collection on the Ethereum blockchain – NFTs that are used to identify members and access privileges in the Asian Television Awards ecosystem.
Representing MRHB DeFi at the AMA discussion are two members of the MRHB core team:
Khalid Howladar is the Chairman of the Advisory Board at MRHB DeFi as well as a senior MD and Head of Credit & Sukuk for R.J Fleming and Co. Previously, he was the global head of Islamic Finance and Head of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) banking team at Moody’s Investors Service (London & Dubai). Howladar has addressed audiences worldwide, with speaking engagements that include those at the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank and the Institute of International Finance.
Cecilia Wong is the Head of Global PR at MRHB DeFi and Founder & CEO of yourPRstrategist, a blockchain and Web3 PR agency that is a 2020/21 Technology Award winner in the PR and media categories. She is a firm supporter of crypto- & DeFi- for-good initiatives and advocates Access-for-All, ‘Accountability not Regulations’ as well as more decentralized and transparent governance even while she continues to underscore the importance of maintaining privacy.
