Arab Music tech company Anghami embraces crypto and Blockchain

In a recent LinkedIn post, Founder of Anghami, Elie Habib, showed a screen shot of Anghami, the first official music streaming platform and digital distribution company in the Arab world, app that linked to crypto wallet MetaMask and crypto Wallet Rainbow. Shortly afterwards Anghami posted a job for digital assets and crypto lead.

Reactions on the LinkedIn post were postive and congratulative. Anghami has as such embraced the crypto world.

Mohamed Kalaaji, Amazon Community Builder, replied in the post, ” Imagine if people swapped Anghami Tokens on PancakeSwap or SushiSwap for Ethereum or other token, stalked them in pools to generate extra revenue then push it back on Anghami.” Others commented on having Anghami NFTs for their licensed material.

Anghami’s move to crypto is even more evident with their recent job post for a ” Digital and Crypto Assets Lead”. As stated on their website, ” Anghami believes that we are at juncture where music rights, music ownership, and fans relationships with artists has to be upgraded to better serve artists as well as fans. We are looking for engineers with hands-on crypto experience, who will play a critical role in implementing the next generation solutions underpinning the new crypto strategy of Anghami. This role will report directly to the CTO and will play a key part in defining and implementing Anghami’s strategy in the wider decentralized technologies, digital asset & cryptocurrency space.”

The post adds, ” Our engineering teams are involved in all aspects of the product lifecycle, from idea generation, design, prototyping, planning, execution and shipping. As a lead, you will help defining, iterating and driving the technical discussions, influencing the approach and decisions of the new crypto projects. You’ll be part of bleeding edge technology at the beginning of a new chapter giving you massive opportunity to have impact.

As mentioned they are seeking candidates who understand blockchain and crypto.
