The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is looking to embrace cryptocurrencies as a key part of its economy in the coming years. This is according to Thani Al-Zeyoudi, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Trade, who spoke about the potential of crypto during an interview at the 2023 World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland.
Al-Zeyoudi stated that crypto will play a major role for UAE trade going forward and that the most important thing is that they ensure global governance when it comes to cryptocurrencies and crypto companies. He explained that the UAE, particularly Dubai, is working towards becoming a crypto-hub by enticing and attracting large companies across the world with their crypto-friendly regulations.
Moreover, the Minister of State for artificial intelligence (AI) and the digital economy, Omar Sultan Al Olama, addressed UAE’s crypto industry status at the 2023 World Economic Forum. He expressed that the UAE is in the process of becoming a crypto-hub and is currently working to build the right governance and legal system needed to support the industry.
The UAE’s commitment to the blockchain industry is evident, as the country has already implemented several blockchain initiatives in its government. For example, the UAE’s Ministry of Economy launched a blockchain-based payment platform called ‚mPay‘, which allows users to transfer money and make payments securely and quickly. Additionally, the country is working to create a blockchain-based digital asset registry, which will be used to track and manage its assets.
Given the UAE’s commitment to blockchain technology and its ambitious plans for the crypto industry, it is likely that the country will become a major player in the crypto economy in the coming years. With a supportive government and the right regulations in place, the UAE could become a global leader in the blockchain industry and could pave the way for other countries to follow suit.
