Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world, has recently signed a deal with the Dubai World Trade Centre Authority (DWTCA) to create an ecosystem for cryptocurrencies and other global virtual assets.

“With the MoU, Binance will help advance Dubai’s commitment to establishing a new international Virtual Asset ecosystem that will generate long-term economic growth through digital innovation” said the Binance team in a statement. “Binance believes that Dubai’s new agenda will contribute to the growth of the global economy”.

To achieve this goal, Binance and DWTCA want to create a special crypto zone and provide assistance to crypto exchanges, businesses that offer blockchain, and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) services that are interested in becoming licensed in Dubai.

Because Dubai doesn’t want to associate itself with illegal activity, DWTCA will additionally act as a regulator and enforce investor protection standards, as well as anti-money laundering (AML) and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) laws.

At this point, we don’t know when the crypto zone will become operational. Binance and DWTCA have so far only signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that outlines their shared vision, but many technical and regulatory details have certainly yet to be worked out.

The project could be affected by the large regulatory pressure Binance is currently facing from regulators around the world.

For example, the Dutch central bank accused it of not complying with AML and CFT laws, the US Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service is probing the exchange to investigate money laundering and tax offenses, the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority has banned the Binance Group from operating in the UK, and the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) has issued a warning to consumers, stressing that the company isn’t licensed to conduct regulated activity in Hong Kong.

It’s possible that Binance, which describes itself as a decentralized company with a global presence and whose corporate structure is opaque at best, is interested in establishing the crypto zone in Dubai to create a safe haven for itself.

In a world first, Lebanon’s AnNahar Newspaper has built an artificial intelligence model designed to carry out presidential duties for the politically troubled country. Lebanon has been without a sitting president for two years after thirteen failed attempts by the nation’s parliament to elect a suitable candidate.

The new AI President’s deep learning algorithm was fed over 90 years of impartial journalism from AnNahar’s archive stretching back to the 1930s. The AI leader analyzes not only historical data but also current events and is able to formulate solutions for all manner of political, legal, and governmental questions. By tapping into such a vast knowledge base, Lebanon’s AI President will have a deep understanding of the country’s past, as well as an unbiased take on the challenges the nation faces going forward.

Nayla Tueni, editor-in-chief of AnNahar Newspaper conducted an interview with the digital leader, asking relevant questions about the current state of Lebanon, and how to fix the country’s difficult political situation. AnNahar has also converted its print newspaper to focus entirely on the new president’s guidance on issues spanning everything from the economy to sustainability and the environment.

After the interview, Nayla Tueni commented: “As Lebanese people, and especially at AnNahar, we refuse to sit back and allow things to go on as they have. To not have a president for this long is unacceptable and has impacted the country negatively. If the parliament will not do its job to elect a president, then the people will bring to Lebanon a president”.

The AI President will soon be accessible to everyone at OurPresident.ai, Users will be able to ask questions in a similar manner to the likes of ChatGPT and Google Gemini. It is also understood that government officials will also use the tool to help devise new directives.
