Dubai World Trade Centre Free Zone and CoinMENA to develop a Crypto Asset and Blockchain Hub

Oct 19, 2021

October 18, 2021 Dubai World Trade Centre Free Zone and CNMENA Holding BVI – the parent company of CoinMENA, the Sharia-compliant digital asset exchange company licensed and regulated by the Central Bank of Bahrain – have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop a Crypto Asset and Blockchain Hub at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). The agreement was signed on the CoinMENA stand during the opening day of the Future Blockchain Summit, one of six events being held at DWTC as part of the five-day GITEX Global 2021, the world’s most complete, experiential technology event, which concludes on October 21. The MoU was signed by Abdalla Al Banna, Vice President of Free Zone Operations at DWTC, and CoinMENA’s founding team Dina Saman, Talal Tabbaa, Yazan Barghuthhi, in the presence of CoinMENA’s board members Abbas Zuaiter and Khalid Saad. Through the MoU, the two entities intend to collaborate to develop a Crypto Asset and Blockchain Hub that encourages top regional and international firms to establish a presence within the DWTC Free Zone. With DWTC providing a unique and regulated ecosystem for businesses seeking local and international opportunities, the DWTC Free Zone is an ideal environment for startups, SMEs and corporations to operate locally while reaching international markets. DWTC and CNMENA Holding will also work together to shape the development of an optimal regulatory environment within the DWTC Free Zone. “CoinMENA has made great strides in advancing the region’s digital asset exchange landscape,” said Abdalla Al Banna, Vice President of Free Zone Operations at DWTC. “Through this MoU, we will harness the expertise of CoinMENA to accelerate Dubai World Trade Centre Free Zone’s role as an incubator for companies, underpinned by blockchain and cryptographic technologies, which continue to drive the digital-led economy. We are committed to continually expanding our services to ensure the free zone is a destination of choice for the international investment and entrepreneurial community in the commercial heart of the Middle East.” Designed to create two-way dialogue and establish progressive frameworks to identify potential synergies and future collaborative opportunities between both parties, the agreement will also see CNMENA Holding relocate CoinMENA’s UAE headquarters to the DWTC Free Zone to create a dedicated talent centre for its future engineering, compliance and resourcing requirements.
