What is included in the World Blockchain Summit?

Why in 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, with the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) working in the crypto regulation.
The DMCC Crypto Centre – launched in May to promote cryptographic and blockchain technologies in Dubai – is home to more than 100 organisations operating in the crypto space.
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.

Dubai has always been a pioneer in the technology space, and it’s no different with blockchain. It is on its way to becoming a global hub for the development of this nascent and exciting industry. I believe the World Blockchain Summit is positioned perfectly to work in such a conducive environment, contributing to this development.
