BitOasis, the largest cryptocurrency platform in the MENA region, has successfully raised $30 million in a Series B round to accelerate its growth while ensuring high standards of regulatory compliance.

The platform was founded in 2015 by Ola Doudin, and it’s headquartered in the United Arab Emirates. Thanks to its founder’s visionary ability to predict the increasingly important role cryptocurrencies are playing in the world, it had been perfectly positioned to take advantage of the cryptocurrency boom.

The funding round was co-led by Chicago-based VC firm Jump Capital, along with Wamda, the largest growth stage fund in the MENA region. Other investors that joined in include Alameda Research, Global Founders Capital, Pantera Capital, Digital Currency Group, and NXMH.

“The company perfectly embodies the elements we seek when investing in international crypto exchanges,” says Peter Johnson, a partner leading Jump Capital’s crypto strategy. “An exceptional team that deeply understands the market, a focus on regulatory compliance, and an ability to build a leading consumer brand”.

According to the official funding announcement, BitOasis wants to solidify its presence and refine its product offering in the countries the cryptocurrency platform already operates in while also expanding to nearby countries. BitOasis is also building strategic partnerships with the public sector to raise awareness around crypto safety, one of the biggest roadblocks to its wider adoption.

“Our latest investment round serves as a vote of confidence in the BitOasis growth story,” commented Ola Doudin. “It further speaks to the state of interest in the MENA region’s growing crypto ecosystem, with global investors and venture capital heavyweights backing the region’s home-grown businesses”.

BitOasis currently allows its users to buy and sell more than 20 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple, with UAE Dirham (AED) and Saudi Riyal (SAR). To start trading, all that users have to do is sign up, verify their identity, and securely deposit funds through one of the supported options.

LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.

So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.

The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.

“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE.

We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.

Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
