The Jibrel Network is the first blockchain protocol to allow any licensed entity to put traditional assets like currencies, bonds/sukuk and other financial instruments on the blockchain in the form of Crypto Depository Receipts (CryDRs). CryDRs have smart regulation built in whereby real-world rules and regulations are translated into solidity code to ensure that while decentralized, tokenized financial assets always follow real world rules and regulations. The translation of financial regulations into code, is a functionality that has not been enabled by any of the blockchain providers across the globe, and this can revolutionize the way regulations are enforced. It will also help improve current legacy financial services practices by providing increased transparency, automation, traceability, and clearing and settlement efficiencies enabling instant and at near-zero fee transactions.

Acoustic Wells is developing a novel pumping control solution for water and oil wells. The solution is plug&play, affordable and scalable. This is made possible by using breakthrough sensor technology we developed at MIT which infer the state of the pump deep underground by processing sound signals at the surface of the well. We then feed that information to our AI algorithms to automatically control each well to allow every producer to significantly reduced power consumption while reducing machine failure rate.
