MAG Lifestyle Development to sell property via First Sharia-compliant crypto-currency OneGram

December 18, 2017

The company delivers on its promise to exceed expectations by offering investors a unique chance to leverage their digital assets

MAG Lifestyle Development, part of the MAG Group, has today announced that it will offer customers the opportunity to purchase properties using OneGram, the first Sharia-compliant crypto-currency. The strategic affiliation, which is the first of its kind in the region, is considered a game changer in both the real estate and crypto-currency industries, providing property investors with a unique chance to leverage their digital assets while also bringing OneGram into the mainstream with a real-world application in the real estate sector.

Talal Moafaq Al Gaddah, CEO of MAG Lifestyle Development, commented: “At MAG, we exist to inspire our customers to expect more from us, and we are delivering on this promise by allowing them to benefit from the growing potential of crypto-currencies with OneGram. In Dubai’s forward-thinking real estate market, where embracing smart digital solutions is a key priority for driving sustainable growth in line with our leadership’s directives, we are proud to be standing apart from the pack by achieving another regional first.”

Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are struggling to enter the mainstream in the Middle East, where their inherently speculative and risky character does not complement the local investment culture. OneGram is stepping in to fill this gap as the first Islamic Sharia-approved cryptocurrency. Each OneGram Coin (OGC) is backed by a gram of gold, which ensures that it remains a fully capitalised and stable digital currency. In compliance with Islamic Sharia law, it is also zero interest, profit-loss sharing and non-speculative as it is pegged to gold.

OneGram is also simple to buy and trade and will go live in June 2018. To discover a new lifestyle with MAG, investors will purchase OneGram to the value of the property and receive a 5% discount on the property price as a result. OneGram will then remit to MAG according to the payment plan, which is 35% over six to nine months and 65% on completion at the end of 2019.

Mohammed Ibraheem Khan, Co-Founder of OneGram, commented: “What other crypto-currencies have failed to achieve, OneGram has accomplished in an incredibly short space of time, and that is to show the market that we are here to stay by creating real-use cases for our token. This is a mega announcement as it is our first real-world application for OneGram, and we are proud to be taking this step with MAG Lifestyle Development, one of the most innovative companies operating in the real estate market.”
