MENA countries’ positioning on blockchain events

 Dubai and the surrounding Middle East and North Africa (MENA) countries have firmly established themselves as some of the world’s most crypto, blockchain and web 3.0-friendly markets. The region positions itself as the perfect destination for projects and influencers worldwide to meet, network and support the continued growth of the ecosystem.

In a statement from Mr Furqan Rassul, CEO of Elite Partner Investment, says:

As a hub for innovation and technology, Dubai has tremendous potential for the growth of the crypto and blockchain ecosystem. We see a significant increase in interest and adoption of these technologies in the region, and I am optimistic about its future here. With the support of the government and the business community, Dubai is becoming a leader in this space. I believe that Elite Partner Investment is well-positioned to play a key role in driving this growth in collaboration with WBS.

Among the topics in identifying the game-changing trends in the web3.0 ecosystem are:

  • Decrypting the regulatory landscape of virtual assets
  • Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs)
  • Cross-border payments and maximizing the impact of environmental, social, and Governance (ESG) with blockchain.
Mohammed Saleem, the founding Chairman of WBS, also hailed the impact of the event on the blockchain ecosystem, saying:

We are honoured to announce the endorsement of HH Sheikh Juma Ahmed Juma Al Maktoum, a member of the ruling family of Dubai, alongside the participation of the most prominent players in the crypto and Web 3.0 space, including Binance, VeChain, Ripple, Polygon, Investcorp, and many others. This shows the influence and growth of the WBS conference, making it a premier event globally in this ever-changing industry. Attendees can network and learn from the brightest minds in the field, making WBS Dubai a must-attend event for those seeking valuable insights and connections.
