WHY DUBAI?

The UAE, particularly Dubai, is recognised for its welcoming stance on crypto and blockchain technology. Dubai facilitates its governing bodies to promote and foster the adoption of blockchain.

  • The city has opened a new free economic zone for business offering, issuing, listing and trading in Crypto. The Dubai Multi Commodities Center has signed an agreement with the Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) to enable licensing for firms that deal with crypto assets.

  • Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority (DAFZA) signed an agreement with the SCA to contribute to driving growth in the cryptocurrency sector and enhance the use of blockchain in Dubai and the UAE, which will be an essential part of the nation's blockchain strategy.

  • The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) intends to propose cryptocurrency regulation in 2021. The DFSA has started gathering public feedback on the proposed crypto laws in March.
