Dubai’s Journey towards Becoming a Virtual Asset Hub
Early this month, the country issued the Dubai Virtual Asset Regulation Law and also formed a Virtual Asset Regulatory Authority to oversee the virtual assets sector. Dubai is planning to develop a framework to give a strong impetus to the digital assets industry while also keeping it in check through adequate safeguards in place. Apart from Bybit, the country also granted licenses to two other largest cryptocurrency exchanges namely Binance and FTX Europe. Its goal is to become an international capital for the crypto-related or digital assets economy. Crypto is the future and will sink into traditional finance one day. Dubai wants to be one step ahead in the race and exploit the benefits of this new age financial ecosystem through the best talent and firms existing globally.
