Dubai’s Crypto Ecosystem

Dubai is gaining popularity among leading digital asset companies around the world as the global hub for crypto innovation. Last month, Crypto.com secured provisional approval from the regional regulatory authorities. According to Tim Byun, the Global Government Relations Officer at OK Group, Dubai is a pioneer in crypto regulations.

“Dubai is a pioneer when it comes to regulation of the virtual assets sector, and it is swiftly becoming one of the top global hubs for the industry. We at OKX are thrilled to be participating in the sound compliance framework that Dubai’s Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority has established, and which reflects the UAE’s leadership as far as nurturing the global economy of the future,” Byun highlighted in a recent press release.
