News BTC is mostly a price prediction platform. After writing about the cultural side of crypto for near four years, I’ve come to learn a thing or two about the correlation between leader, community, and price.
Even though I have no qualifications or desire to be a price predictor, I’ve made great friends here through whom it becomes easier to navigate the projects that have their foundations correct. The Defi burn is on, and I’m privileged to have chosen and accepted the ‘Artistic Ambassador’ title for Sheesha Finance.
Sheesha Finance is a Decentralized Finance venture founded by Saeed Hareb Al Darmaki. The strong team assembled to bring this venture into reality has been vetted by many community members, and approved to make the DeFi story even more interesting.
“VESA has proven himself to be a leader in the digital art space which is not something that happens overnight. He has worked tirelessly at his craft for years, earning him features in Forbes and allowing him to work with very famous crypto infuencers. We are honored to have VESA as our Artistic Ambassador, guiding us in the decision-making of what artists to bring into our ecosystem and working with our community to educate and deliver quality content.”- Saeed Al Darmaki
The King’s Decentralized Deer
“If it is illegal for a man to fend for himself, how can he be a man in his own right?” -Robin Hood
Speaking of content, here is a thought and myth made visible in modern times. We undoubtedly are living through an unprecedented time in world history with COVID. Despite the rhetoric of “We are in this together” by most passing the lockdown laws, they keep having their paychecks show up, as they wish those well who have no such luck. The deer have been claimed by the king, leaving most with chasing rabbit meat.
While this might feel like a blessing to vegans, the green supply chain is equally affected, and there is a weird increase in supplement prices and kale lately. In this way, perhaps not all health risks this brings us are considered. For that problem, the crypto and DeFi space offer people the freedom to choose the risks they take. The defi space is a continued evolution of the power of the internet & free education for those who choose it instead of the latest episode of reality TV.
This is why I think what the COO Benjamin Leff has to say here matters.
What excites me most about Sheesha Finance is the unique model we have designed that allows exposure to top DeFi projects by way of partnerships and rewards to our stakeholders. Many of these partnerships come from direct relationships with Sheesha Finance team members and advisors. By partnering with such strong projects, our community members will receive tokens of merit. Over time we will turn our project into a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) leaving the decision-making to our community! – Ben Leff
There is no closed pre-sale, top rewards, nor hierarchy other than first movers. It’s designed for free will to participate for those who can, and all are welcome to join the community.
As for vetting the project properly, and OG advisory side, here are some words by the one and only Mr. James Bowater, London’s resident crypto insider.
I was super impressed with the team behind Sheesha Finance. In fact Saeed Al Darmaki is member of a few of my WhatsApp community groups. Of course you know Ben Leff which I found out by virtue of his work with Brittany Kaiser. Knowing other folks in the DeFi space like my good friends Stani Kulechov and Julien Bouteloup, one thing I know that is essential is the veracity and security of the coding of the smart contracts and so the final part of my decision process was being satisfied with the audit. I was delighted to find out my good buddy Hartej Sawhney of Zokyo.io was not only doing the audit (which Sheesha passed with flying colours) but also joining the advisory team. Since joining Saeed some other familiar and friendly faces have come on board – essentially a great team for a great project which I’m delighted to support. – James Bowater

The last but punchy quote of today is by Mr. Matthew Armstrong from Royale Finance.

This mutually beneficial partnership helps Sheesha expand its network partners and reach while providing Royale network participants an interesting investment avenue through Sheesha’s liquidity generation events.” -Matthew Armstrong

I’ll soon be traveling back to Dubai to meet some old friends, as well as make new ones. Can’t wait to feel that desert sun on my face.
In the meanwhile, I wish you blessed stakes.
